Thank you for taking part in this year’s 59th running of the world famous Mt. SAC Relays. All of us here at Mt. SAC are happy to be working with Brooks Running once again and are very grateful for their generous support and obvious affection for our event. The enthusiasm and fun they bring to the Relays is no doubt felt by all in attendance and we are proud to be partnering with them to bring you this year’s edition of this historic, traditional and much loved track and field extravaganza!
Construction is under way at Mt. SAC as all of you are no doubt aware. Our plan to renew and refurbish an aging albeit historic icon is well underway and, when completed, will be a new state of the art facility that will more adequately meet the needs of our sport well into the 21st century. Thank you for your support of our plan and for your patience during our long and sometimes frustrating construction process.
Like all of you, I’m anxious to return in the very near future to our newly renovated Hilmer Lodge Stadium. However, I am also very happy to be contesting the event this year at Murdock Stadium on the campus of El Camino College. Many thanks to the good people there who have been so wonderful to work with at all levels and in every situation. The Mt. SAC Relays is a bit of an undertaking under the best of circumstances, taking it on the road makes it a bit more challenging than usual but the track staff and athletic administration have made us all feel right at home.
Even though located in a different venue we are confident you will find that same familiar Mt. SAC spirit that makes our event so special. We always strive to put the athlete first in all of our considerations and this year will be no different.
Exceptional fields of talented athletes competing continues to be the theme of our event and this year will be no different.
Best of luck to all coaches and athletes taking part. On behalf of Mt. SAC, our presenting partner Brooks Running and El Camino College we welcome you and wish you the best of luck.
