The 2020 XC Junior Nationals Facebook page has announced the cancellation of the remainder of the 2020 U.S. Junior National Cross Country Ski Championships:
In support of efforts to minimize the transmission of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), U.S. Ski & Snowboard in conjunction with the local organizing committee at the Auburn Ski Club Training Center and Division Team Leaders, have made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the 2020 U.S. Junior National Cross Country Ski Championships.
In keeping with updated information from the State of California Department of Health and the recent recommendations from the Governor of California that non-essential gatherings of more than 250 people should be postponed, we are prioritizing the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, staff, volunteers, and spectators involved in these events. We are devastated to announce this cancelation, however, COVID-19 is a fast-evolving situation globally and we know this decision is in the best interest of our broader sport community with regards to handling the situation we are all facing.
We are grateful to the significant amount of work invested by the Organizing Committee – a volunteer group assembled with the Auburn Ski Club Training Center – who were excited to host a full week of events to the nation’s best skiers.
