SWXRightNow.com -- North Central High School cross country star Tanner Anderson won the 2014 Nike Cross Nationals earlier today with a 15:11 finish by holding off Olin Hacker of Madison, WI who finished just a second behind the Indians' runner. 

In its 11th year, the Nike Cross Nationals is one of the most prestigious meets in the entire country. This year the 5k meter race was moved to Gledoveer Golf Course in Portland, Ore. and offered runners a new challenge with over 350 of the top athletes in the country coming to compete.

The NXN course, with obstacles, rolling hills and tree-lined fairways, today delivered a classic interpretation of Pacific Northwest's storied running environments in front of an enthusiastic crowd including Nike elite athlete Galen Rupp, Shalane Flanagan, Mary Cain and Evan Jager. - NXN Release

Anderson also won the event in 2013. Full results can be found at nikecrossnationals.com and more about the race can be found here: http://news.nike.com/news/xxx-takes-xc-team-title-at-nike-cross-nationals
