Campus Life

Men's Cross Country



In 2009, Green River re-started it cross country program to the applause of the local running community. Not since 1991 has the campus taken advantage of the Auburn, WA campus full of running and hiking trails. With a great tradition of local runners in the South Sound area, Green River Community College is looking to attract talented student athletes to participate in this intercollegiate varsity sport. A member of the NW Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC), the Gators will be looking to quickly become a competitive program under the guide of a skilled coaching staff.
