Yakima announced as host city for Inland Northwest Cross Country Junior Olympic Association Finals in 2017 & 2018

We have some very exciting news to share. Two months ago, Sun City put in a bid to host the 2017 and 2018 Junior Olympic Cross Country Meets. It was announced last night at the Inland Northwest meeting that the meets will be in Yakima for the next two years!

What does this mean? Logistically, Sun City athletes┬ádon’t have to drive to Spokane or Tri-Cities for the next two Association meets in 2017 and 2018. It also means that the Region 13 Regional Meet in 2018 will be at our home course and there will be 500+ runners from Washington, Oregon and Idaho will descend on Yakima and Franklin Park as they try to qualify for Junior Olympic Nationals. It will be a great time to showcase our city and course to the rest of the region the next two years.
