On December 10th, Compete College Station, in partnership with Destination Bryan and Texas A&M Athletics, hosted the 2022 USA Track and Field National Junior Olympic Cross-Country Championship at the Dale Watts Cross Country Course.
We welcomed over 3,000 athletes, their families, and coaches to the Heart of Aggieland from all over the country!
While not competing, athletes and their families enjoyed College Station during one of the most joy- filled times of the year- Christmas in College Station! Some enjoyed Howdy Holly-Days at Northgate, others visited Santa’s Wonderland, some checked out Aggie Holiday Hoops, and others even added an additional race by running the BCS Marathon on December 11th. This one-day event brought an estimated $2.9 million in economic impact to the College Station area.
We look forward to welcoming USA Track and Field again in 2024, when the Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships will be held from July 25-31.
