Welcome to the 57th annual Brooks / Mt. SAC Relays! This year is a very special year in that it will be the last time that the “World’s Best Athletes” will compete in world famous “Hilmer Lodge Stadium” under it’s current configuration. Constructed back in 1959 under the watchful eye of it’s namesake Mt. SAC’s venerable old stadium has been host to 20 world records including what is arguably the greatest single day of track and field competition where 7 world records were broken in one night!
In addition many other outstanding performances and track and field firsts have taken place at Mt. SAC over the years. We list just a brief summary below:
Largest Track and Field Competition in the World with over 13,500 competitors competing over 3 weekends and 6 days.
Hundreds of National Records have been set at Hilmer Lodge Stadium
Site of 3 U.S. Olympic Trials
Site of the greatest day in track and field where 7 world records were broken or tied on the evening of August 12, 1960.
The stadium was the host to the first ever meeting between athletes from the Peoples Republic of China and Taiwan
Edwin Moses captured his 60th consecutive 400M hurdles race (48.61) at the 1981 Mt. SAC Relays
Site of "greatest long jump series in history" when Carl Lewis jumps over 28 feet in all six of his jumps.

Mt. SAC is one of track and field’s ‘special places’. The meet’s rich history and commitment to putting the athletes first at all times has contributed to a unique competitive environment. As we say goodbye to , what was in 1959, a new state of the art facility and get ready to welcome in a brand new state of the art facility in 2017 we invite you to be a part in the last competition held in ‘the ole Hilmer Lodge.’
On behalf of meet management, the college and our volunteers, we wish you the very best of luck.
