We often receive information from other local clubs or the Potomac Valley Association, which is our regional branch of the USATF organization through which our athletes participate in the Junior Olympics. Below you'll find various postings and flyers for those events, as well as other running events that we are made aware of that are open to local competitors. You do NOT have to be a current MYTF participant in order to enroll in these events!
PLEASE NOTE: MYTF provides this information to its participants and other viewers of this website SOLELY for informational purposes. Posting of notices on this site does NOT constitute an endorsement of the organization or its event by MYTF!
With the exception of the Junior Olympics-specific events, if you are interested in participating in any of these events, you must contact the event coordinator directly, *NOT* MYTF. Please note that often these conflict with our own MYTF events; we post them for those who may not be running on a given weekend, for siblings, and for those who were unable to register for MYTF this season.

Youth XC Coaches:
As today is the Boston Marathon Monday could there be better a day to plan for distance running? All this makes me think of fall cross country and getting ready for the cross country championship season.
With that in mind?.. Registration is now open for the CCCNYC East Regional Cross Country Championships!
The CCCNYC (Cross Country Coaches National Youth Championship) East Regional Championships is a quality end of season championship meet. The meet will be held November 4th, 2018 in Tyler State Park in Newtown, PA . You can find much more information (including course maps and videos) and register at the link below.
The meet will have the following races:
1K fun run for 5 and under runners
6-8 Girls 2K
6-8 Boys 2K
9-10 Girls 3K
9-10 Boys 3K

11-12 Boys 3K
13-14 Girls 4K

OPEN XC 5K - For parents, coaches and friends
Top 20 in each race medal, not including the 1K as for that race all runners receive a finishers ribbon. The top 20 in each single age qualify for the CCCNYC Nationals (not including the 1K or the 15-18 age race). The top 3 teams in each race (not including the 1K or the 15-18 age race) qualify as teams to the CCCNYC Nationals and receive team awards. The 12th Annual Cross Country Coaches National Youth Championships will be held on Saturday, November 17, 2018, at Tom Sawyer State Park in Louisville KY.
In addition, we have added an open 5K run for coaches, parents, and friends. The open 5K will go off at 9:00am prior to the course walks so coaches interested in running can get back to their teams.
Tech Shirts will be available for purchase. We are offering team discounts for shirts as well with paid registration. Last year the tech shirt was sold race day for $15 so we really are doing our best to keep this meet affordable.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me. I am happy to answer any questions you may have!!! Much more information will also be sent out later this year. Please put this meet on your XC schedule today! (November 4th, 2018)
To help spread the word and to allow for better communication the CCCNYC East Regional has set up a Facebook page and event. Additional information will be posted on these sites so I encourage you all to like the page and sign up for the event and then share them. Remember the date is Sunday November 4th, 2018!
For out of town clubs I am working on a group rate at a hotel about 2 miles from Tyler State Park. More information on that soon!
