Evan Jager (pictured above competing at the 2006 FootLocker Midwest XC) will open his 2018 campaign by competing at the USATF Cross Country Championships in Tallahassee, Florida this weekend. 

Jager will compete in the men's 10,000m race, which will be the 28-year-old's first competition since the Brussels Diamond League last September. Jager had another strong showing throughout 2017, the Bowerman Track Club athlete netting a bronze medal at the IAAF World Championships in London and scoring his first win on the Diamond League circuit when winning the 3000m steeplechase in Monaco in a blazing 8:01.29.
