Cross Country Junior Nationals Kick Off Monday
The Cross Country Junior Nationals take place March 11-16 at Kinkaid Park in Anchorage, Alaska. All events will be broadcast through a free live stream created by a unique partnership between CXC and U.S. Ski & Snowboard.
This prestigious end of season event pits some of the nation’s top junior skiers against one another, not only for individual championships but also for coveted points for the Divisions’ top ranking team and the coveted Alaska Cup.
“We have brought multiple high profiles events to Kincaid and to the city of Anchorage. We are a well-oiled machine running this,” U.S. Junior National Cross Country Championships Event Chair Joey Caterinichio said. “Even more so now that Kincaid has snowmaking equipment that it lacked 10 years ago. There are new, improved courses and Anchorage rocks as a strong Nordic community.”
Skiers ranging from ages 14-19 will be in Anchorage competing not only for a podium here, but also earning team spots for elite U.S. Ski Team camps, college identification, and individual pride.
