, in conjunction with the OUSA Junior Nationals

Quantico Classic and 2019 Junior Nationals website
The JWOC Team Trials Sprint race
will take place on the campus of George Mason University
(Fairfax, VA) at around 4:00 PM on Friday, April 12
. The Sprint is a completely separate event, but those who register for the Junior Nationals, and indicate they wish to compete in the JWOC Team Trials, will be automatically registered for the Sprint. At least at this time, due to venue restrictions and very limited event staff, the Sprint race will be limited to JWOC Team Trials participants only
VERY important note
, age 18 and older, who participate in the races -- or just spectate
-- on MCB Quantico, MUST register for the event
(those who will not race simply select "Not competing" for the races, for which there is no cost). After registering, you will be directed to a separate, secure online form on which you will enter your event confirmation number -- NOT your name!
-- and social security (USA) or passport (non-USA) number. Please see the event registration information page
for full details on this requirement.
Best wishes for your best races!
Chair, Junior Team Executive Steering Committee (JTESC)
