USATF Junior Olympic XC Regional Championship


Race: The USATF Junior Olympic Regional Meet. 

Course Preview: I will plan to be at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon (click here for directions) by 4pm on Friday for a course preview. Same as last week, 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. Plan to depart Lane CC by 5:00-5:30pm (depending on weather and the timeliness of everyone showing up) so we can get to the hotel for check-in.

Meet Location: Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon. Click here for directions.

Lodging: Holiday Inn Express, 919 Kruse Way in Springfield, Oregon 97477. Guests an make reservations by calling the hotel directly at 541-284-0707 and requesting the Whisper Running group block, or simply make reservations online. Individuals may cancel their guestrooms up to 72 hours prior to arrival. Should any individual cancel within 72 hours of arrival they will be charged one night at the group rate of $109.00 plus 11.3% tax per room cancelled. The cut-off date for accepting reservations at this rate is November 1. Check-in is 3:00pm, while check-out is 11:00am. A hot buffet breakfast is included complimentary with each guestroom every morning.

Dinner: Ciao Pizza (& Italian Food). Ciao Pizza & Italian is less than a half of a mile from the hotel, so we will plan to walk. Bring an umbrella just in case. We have reservations for 30, so parents may have to dine elsewhere. Please see the website for menu and pricing.

Breakfast: More info coming soon.

Start Times: Same as the Association Meet (once I know, it'll be posted)

Whisper Runners: Plan to meet at the Whisper canopy at Lane CC within 90-minutes of the start of your race.
