Local runners eyeing Junior Olympics

A group of middle school runners hope to accomplish big things at a regional Cross Country race this Saturday

Ten local runners between the ages of 11 and 14 are competing in a regional Junior Olympic Cross Country race this weekend in Northville with the ultimate goal to participate in the national event held in San Antonio this December.

The group of young runners branched off from the Traverse Area Running Club to form TARCjo. They are looking to raise money for the trip to Texas next month. If you would like to learn more you can check out their facebook page:!/TARCJuniorOlympics
