April 19th marks the start of the Mt. SAC Relays - a weekend of pure Track & Field Utopia - and we couldn't be more excited! 

What happens when 15,000 Track & Field athletes and 15,000 more fans converge on a small city in Southern California? You could call it a Track & Field utopia, but most people just call it the Mt. SAC Relays! For fifty four years, some of the world’s best athletes have been venturing out to the Hilmer Lodge Stadium in Walnut, California to compete on one of the sport’s most storied stages, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it all!

 This year may be the most exciting yet as top athletes like Allyson Felix, Carmelita Jeter, Lashinda Demus, Martyn Rooney, Jeremy Wariner, David Torrence, and PUMA’s own Delilah DeCrescenzo will all be in attendance to compete. Along with these outstanding runners, we’re also bringing back the PUMA Mile to encourage smashing the sub four minute mile mark. We’ll be putting up $10,000.00 in prize money to the first three finishers who cross the line under 4:00 minutes for men or 4:30 minutes for women. First place walks away with $2,500.00. Second place will receive $1,500.00 and third place will pocket a cool $1000.00.

If that wasn’t enough, we're bringing some of PUMA's favorite social games to the event - from ping pong to foosball, a tee-shirt customization press, and photobooth – we’re going all out for fans and athletes alike! If you’re not already on your way, we suggest you get packing because this weekend, Mt. SAC is the place to be!

If you can’t make the meet in person, don’t worry, we’ll be live tweeting from @PUMARunning using the hashtag #MTSAC and posting pictures as well as regular updates to Facebook so you can still be a part of all the action!
