Carl Josef Ternström (4 December 1888 – 2 May 1953) was a Swedish runner. He competed at the 1912 Summer Olympics in cross country events and won a team gold medal, finishing fifth individually. The course was rather hilly and ca. 12 km long; it was not made known to competitors before the race.[2][3][4]
