Welcome to the Jasper Junior Olympics!
The largest sanctioned alpine race of it's kind in North America!
The 2022 Jasper Junior Olympics was ran on March 5th and 6th, with 451 racers.
There was easing of Covid restrictions so we had had an EPIC awards ceremony, with help from Alberta Alpine President Patrick Gillespie and our GMC sponsors.
LUMBERJACK theme this year added to the fun and we saw many others join in with their own buffalo plaid. I hope athletes managed to complete Marmot's Munchies Animal Adventure to receive a cool new JJO sticker and prizes, definitely saw a few teams working on it.
12 year old racers were eligible for this years JJO as they missed out on what would have been there final JJO last year. Thank you for coming out and showing us how its done one final time.
This is an Alberta North Zone race and it really showed, as we had volunteers from every club step up to take part. The ROC was made up of Cold Lake, Rabbit Hill and ESC and we would like to add another club to the mix next year as we need a new Chief of Volunteers.
