Local runners with Weatherford’s Mach 1 Track Club will be washing cars this weekend to help raise funds for a trip (for qualifying athletes) to the Junior Olympics in Sacramento, California in late July.

Mach 1 recently qualified a record 34 runners to regionals after a strong, team-wide showing at the Southwestern Association Junior Olympic Championship Meet in Springtown last weekend.

The local track club previously qualified eight runners to the USA Track and Field National Junior Olympics last summer (held in Greensboro, North Carolina), with three taking home all-American honors.

Mach 1’s annual car wash runs from 7 a.m. to noon Saturday at the State Farm parking lot off South Main in Weatherford.
