With the many changing needs of collegiate programs, along with the issues administrating the vast number of ever-changing entries, we have made a necessary operational change.

After reviewing the current situation of the Spring Break Los Angeles Area Track Meets and after much discussion, including with other meet directors and collegiate coaches, we will be implementing the following changes in 2023.

  1. We will be inviting approximately 30 programs to compete in the Collegiate Division section of the Mt. SAC Relays.
    • Invitation will be based on past Mt. SAC Relays attendance and current team rankings.
    • Invited teams must sign the Mt. SAC Relays Collegiate Division contract and in return are guaranteed to get their ENTIRE team into the collegiate meet with the following caveats:
      • A guarantee (contract) that an invited program’s team will only compete at Mt. SAC and not at other Los Angeles area competitions held on the same dates. Does not apply to Multi-Event entries (there is only an Elite Division Multi-Event; no Collegiate Division).
      • Maximum of three athletes per field event, unless space is available.
    • Athletes from invited teams will automatically be consideration for the Elite Division.
    • Local colleges / universities, not invited as a whole team, who have individuals whose performances warrant consideration for the Collegiate Division, will be considered. Please contact meet director Don Turnbull at trakn@yahoo.com
  2. Benefits of our new invitation only system
    • Teams will be able to stay at one location, rather than traveling to multiple competitions.
    • Teams can plan their travel earlier, hopefully saving money with flights and hotels.
    • The Mt. SAC Relays will be able to focus on fewer teams and provide better service to them.
    • Each invited team will be provided a team tent with additional services TBA.

NOTE: Collegiate programs (not invited as a team) with athletes that warrant consideration for the Elite Division, may still enter through the Elite Division Entry website.


All invited collegiate teams will register on Direct Athletics at directathletics.com/meets/track/77931.html

  • Collegiate programs that wish to enter individual athletes (whose performances warrant entry in Elite Division Events) and are NOT an invited team, must register these athletes for the Elite Division at directathletics.com/meets/track/77967.html
  • Collegiate athletes who ARE on an invited collegiate team and whose performances warrant entry into the Elite Division, will register in the Collegiate Division and will be automatically considered for Elite Division events.

All teams invited to this year’s Mt. SAC Relays Collegiate Division must complete and return their team contracts by March 15, 2023.

  • Registration opens on Monday, February 27, 2023
  • Registration closes on Saturday, April 1, 2023 at 11:59pm PT
  • Accepted Entries posted on Tuesday, April 4, 2023 at 11:59pm PT. List of all athletes and the events they have been accepted in will be posted at runmtsac.com
  • Scratch Deadline on Thursday, April 6, 2023 at 11:59pm PT
  • Final Confirmation on Sunday, April 9, 2023 by 5:00pm PT. Final accepted entries along with tentative heat / section information

All running marks submitted must be achieved using a fully automatic timing system (No hand times accepted) and all marks must be verifiable. Must be listed on the World Athletics, USATF, Direct Athletics or TFFRS performance lists. In the distances (ONLY), comparable events may be used for qualification purposes.


All submitted entries must be verified marks from the 2022 and 2023 season only. In the majority of contested events, Direct Athletics will force or list your best mark.


There are no minimum entry standards for collegiate teams invited to the Mt. SAC Relays. We will do our best to accommodate your entire team, but due to time and entry limitations, some events may be limited. Using ’22 or ’23 marks, all entries will be rank ordered and used to fill the number of Collegiate Division entry slots available.


If a Collegiate Division entry warrants an Elite Division placement, that athlete will be automatically considered for Elite Division Events. If you DO NOT want your athletes competing in Elite Division events, please contact Collegiate Division Coordinator, Don Turnbull.

  • Individual (per event) = $25
  • Relay Team (per event) = $60

Registration fee credit card hold must be completed at the time of entry on Direct Athletics. The actual fee will be charged once the Scratch Deadline had passed (see “Dates and Deadlines” above).

  • Running Events: 100M, 200M, 400M 800M, 1500M, 5000M, 10,000M, 100 / 110M Hurdles, 400M Hurdles, 3000M Steeplechase, 4x100M, 4x400M
  • Field Events: Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump, Pole Vault, Shot, Discus, Javelin, Hammer
  • Multi-Events: Decathlon (Elite Division Only), Heptathlon (Elite Division Only)

If you must scratch, please click on the link to report any scratches at mtsacathletics.com/specialevents/MtSACRelays/scratchforms/collegiate


Team packets and entrance wristbands will be distributed at the Team Packet Pick-Up Office located just east of the stadium box office at the North end of stadium. Closest parking location is Parking Lot F (North side of Temple Avenue). Use the tunnel that runs beneath Temple Avenue and connects Lot F and the stadium front gate / box office.

  • Entrance Procedure: Each team will receive wristbands for their athletes and staff in their team packet. All coaches and / or support personnel accompanying you MUST wear their wristband to enter the stadium through the front gates and other controlled entrances.
  • FIELD EVENT ATHLETES will check in with the official at your field event site 30 minutes prior to the start of your event.
  • RUNNING EVENT ATHLETES must follow the procedure below:
    • An athlete, coach or team manager must check-in at the CHECK-IN TENT (behind scoreboard) and declare themselves / their athletes intention to run 30 to 60 minutes prior to the start of the event. Competitors who check in later than this time frame will be scratched.
    • The athlete (no coaches / managers) must report back to the HIPPING AREA (behind scoreboard) 15 minutes prior to the start of the race to receive their heat / lane assignment and their hip number. The athlete should be prepared and ready to run / go to the start line after entering the hipping area.
    • The athlete must remain in the hipping area and will shortly be brought to the start line with the other competitors using the gate at the South end of the main track, in front of the scoreboard.
  • Athlete heat and lane change will occur if there are scratches or a competitor fails to declare.
  • Final heat and lane assignments will be given on meet day at the hipping area.
  • Depending on the number of sections, be aware that there may be some slight time changes to the schedule. Please check runmtsac.com for FINAL TIME SCHEDULE.

There is no charge for bus parking or for marked college vans. ALL TEAMS WILL ALSO BE PROVIDED TWO ADDITIONAL PARKING PASSES FOR ADDITIONAL VEHICLES. All other vehicles will be charged. Bus parking is ONLY available in Lot F (North side of Temple Avenue). Vans and other types of vehicles, with parking pass, will be able to also park in the Gateway Parking Structure (Southwest corner of Temple Avenue and Bonita) or Champions Parking Structure (behind stadium). See: maps.mtsac.edu/maps/index.html


Athletes and coaches competing in the Hammer may park in Lot L, located next to the Hammer Facility. Please be aware that this is a small lot. If all the spots are taken when you arrive you will have to park in the Champion Parking Structure located north of our warm-up track. DO NOT park on the side of the road. You will be cited for that.


All invited teams, who have signed contracts with the Mt. SAC Relays, will be provided a marked team tent located on the grass field behind the scoreboard and adjacent to the practice track.


EVERYONE must enter the stadium via the Main Gate, located at the Front (North end) of the stadium, or at additional gates when wearing their wristband. See: maps.mtsac.edu/maps/index.html


The Mt. SAC Relays will be contested regardless of weather conditions. There are no refunds due to inclement weather, acts of God, police or fire department closure or any other circumstances beyond our control. The Mt. SAC Relays reserves the right to cancel, postpone or reschedule the event. There will be no refunds in the event of cancellation.
