(Walnut, CA) In the wake of the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) situation in the United States, the 2020 Mt. SAC Relays, in its entirety on the currently scheduled dates, will be cancelled. The decision was made by the Mt. San Antonio College's Administration in line with guidance from Governor Newsome on large public gatherings.
“We are disappointed that the return of the Mt. SAC Relays to new Hilmer Lodge Lodge Stadium will be postponed.” replied Mt. SAC Director of Athletic Special Events, Doug Todd. “We were looking forward to showcasing our new stadium to the world, but understand and support this tough decision. The health and safety of those attending the Mt. SAC Relays must and always will come first.”
If the current situation improves at a later date, the possibility of running an elite competition (format TBA) with or without spectators exists. We are in communication with the USATF Office and are looking at ways in which we can provide elite athletes an opportunity to obtain qualifying marks for important postseason competitions, including the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
Updates to the situation will be posted on the Mt. SAC Relays Website at www.mtsacrelays.com.
