USATF Junior Olympic XC Association Meet

General Information: The following link is a downloadable PDF which includes the meet schedule, age divisions, parking, team scoring, and more, for the 2018 USATF PacNW XC Association Meet. An updated, 2019 copy will be uploaded here when it is made available (around October). Since this meet has been held at the same venue for many consecutive years, there will likely not be any changes. Click here for the downloadable 2018 PDF.

Race: The USATF Junior Olympic pursuit to Nationals starts here at the Association Meet. 

Course Preview: I will plan to be at Woodland Park by 4pm on Friday for a course preview. I do realize that this is a less than desirable time, given school and work schedules, along with drive time, but it will allow us time to check into our hotel(s) (see Lodging below) and make it to dinner (see Dinner below) on-time.

Start Times: Click here for race information and race start times.

Travel: The location of this race is Woodland Park, just north of Seattle.

Lodging: In the past we have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites, which is a few miles from the park. There is also a pool, so be sure to bring a swimsuit!

Dinner: There are several options, but in the spirit of distance running, we will be having dinner at the Tutta Bella at 7pm.  Click here for the Tutta Bella website, menu, and location.  This venue is less than a mile from the hotel, so we will plan to walk. In the case of rain, be sure to bring an umbrella.

Whisper Runners: Plan to meet at the Whisper canopy in Woodland Park within 90-minutes of the start of your race.
