ACCEPTED ENTRIES

A list of all athletes accepted into this year’s Mt. SAC Relays and the events in which they have been accepted will be posted at runmtsac.com. If an athlete is listed as “Accepted” that means that athlete has been accepted into the Mt. SAC Relays, either in the invitational or seeded race or field event section.

SCRATCHES

Coaches wishing to “scratch” (remove) an athlete from the competition, must do so by the scratch deadline.  Any scratch occurring after the scratch deadline will be charged to your entry fee.  

FINAL CONFIRMATIONS

All remaining accepted athletes that remain on your roster for the Mt. SAC Relays will be charged to you credit card when the Final Confirmations are posted. 

HEAT AND LANE ASSIGNMENTS

Heat and lane assignments will be posted/updated throughout the week leading up to the Mt. SAC Relays. Heat and Lane Assignments may change due to last minute scratched.

ENTRY MARKS

All marks submitted must have been achieved in 2024 and must be an official mark listed on Athletic.net. No manually entered marks into Athletic.net will be accepted.

MINIMUM ENTRY STANDARDS: While there are no minimum entry standards, be aware that there are a limited number of spaces available in each event. We will only be accepting the top athletes and relay teams. NOTE: This means that the act of registering an athlete online through Athletic.net DOES NOT mean that the athlete/relay team registered will be automatically accepted into the meet.

REGISTRATION FEES

  • Individuals: $25 per individual per event
  • Relay Teams: $60
  • Entry Fee Cap: $360 per gender or $720 both genders

You will be required to authorize a credit card at the time of registration to enter athletes into our meet. The credit card will only be charged for ACCEPTED athletes and relay teams left on your Mt. SAC Relays Team Roster, when Final Confirmations are posted.  

Please note that our registration process no longer allows a school or individual to pay their fees on meet day. Your team’s full entry fee will be charged to the credit card on at the time of our scratch deadline.

If you require a receipt, you must generate one online using your account on the Athletic.net website.

LATE SCRATCHES

If you have a scratch AFTER the scratch deadline has passed (no entry fee refund however, this will ensure that alternates can be notified), please email our High School Division Director, Mark Gardner at mgardner@cnusd.k12.ca.us with the following information:

  • Athlete’s first and last name
  • School name
  • Event or events from which you are scratching this athlete
  • Your name and phone number so we can call and confirm the scratch.

NOTE: Scratches may only be made by the official high school coach.

ENTRY UPDATES

Official seed times on Athletic.net will continue to automatically update until the close of registration. After this date, the school’s coach, and only the school’s coach, may submit updated marks, for only “Accepted” or “Alternate List” Athletes, via email to our High School Division Coordinator, Mark Gardner at mgardner@cnusd.k12.ca.us

ALTERNATES

Athletes/Relay Teams that are not accepted into the Mt. SAC Relays may be placed on an Alternates List in an order determined by our seeding committee. When scratches occur, Alternates, for each event, will be placed into the meet in the order they are listed.

When Final Confirmations are posted, 10 alternates listed for each lane race. On the day before the meet, the list will be pared down to five alternates for each laned race with no additional alternates being added.

Any alternate who is added into the meet prior to the scratch deadline will be charged a registration fee.

Distance Race and Field Event fields are created with larger than expected fields to anticipate the usual number of scratches that occur.  In these events, there are no alternates and no one will be added to these fields.

Only the 5 alternates listed on meet day for each of the laned races will be admitted into the stadium, for free.

PACKET PICK-UP

Team packets and entrance wristbands may be picked up at the Team Packet Pick-Up Office located East of the Stadium Ticket office (North end of stadium). All high school teams must park in parking lot F, (North side of Temple Avenue) and use the tunnel, that runs beneath Temple, to access the front of the stadium.  See: www.mtsac.edu/maps

NOTE: The first coach to arrive on scene at packet pick-up will receive the entire team packet. It is up to that individual to coordinate any distribution of contents to later arriving staff and athletes. No packets will be given to parents or athletes. No athletes will be admitted without an official school coach.

ENTRANCE PROCEDURE FOR ATHLETES

In the Team Packet will be a wristband and bib number for every athlete that has been accepted into the meet (individual event or relay).  All athletes must have a properly secured wristband ON their wrist, PRIOR, to entering the stadium.

ENTRANCE PROCEDURE FOR COACHES

Each school will receive coaches’ wristbands calculated using the following formula:

  • One athlete = One (1) wristband
  • Two to five athletes = Two (2) wristbands
  • Six to 10 athletes = Three (3) wristbands
  • 11 to 15 athletes = Four (4) wristbands
  • 16-20 athletes = Five (5) wristbands
  • More than 21 athletes = Six (6) wristbands

All athletes must have a properly secured wristband ON their wrist, PRIOR, to entering the stadium.
