Junior Olympics Crosscountry

The Junior Olympic Cross Country program culminates each December when more than 1,500 youth cross country runners hit the course to compete in the National Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships. This year, entry for the national championships is based on athlete performances at the preliminary District meet in Mid November.  We are also working on adding a couple local meets. (TBD).
