About Hilmer Lodge Stadium

Although home to the Mt. SAC Mountaineers football team, the stadium is perhaps best known as the site of the Mt. SAC Relays, one of the world's largest track & field meets, held each April. It annually welcomes more than 15,000 participants!

Opened in 1959, Hilmer Lodge Stadium is named for the founder of the Relays and the school's former track coach. The facility was the site for the U.S. National Track & Field Championships in 1962 (men only), 1979 and 1980. The stadium is also the host of the Mt. SAC Cross Country Invitational, the world's largest cross country event with over 17,000 competitors. The venue also has the ability to stage large-scale concerts.
