Mt SAC Preview

relays2001_14

We roll on back to “Where the world’s best athletes compete.” Take a quick look at the start lists for this weekend’s Mt SAC Relays and it would be hard to disagree with the events slogan. From the shot put to the 10,000m and everything in-between, we can guarantee that the 56th annual Mt SAC Relays will produce yet another weekend of world class athletics.

In terms of British and Irish interest, there will be a huge contingent competing this weekend. Collegiates, former collegiates, professionals, and serious amateurs will all be making the annual pilgrimage out west primarily for the perfect pacing and weather conditions, and the after-race In-N-Out burgers.

As the screenshot shows below (taken from Google weather), conditions are expected to be just about perfect for the weekend.
