Saturday will mark the 50th year of the Mansfield Relays being at Mehock Field in Mansfield, after spending the past three years at Ashland University.

Some 830 athletes and 74 teams will compete on the new rubberized surface, but for nearly 40 years the meet was run behind old Mansfield Senior High School at Stadium Field on a cinder track, before the meet was moved to it's current site in 1964.

Former meet director Doug Castle says at the events peak, around 1972, there were 300 teams competing involving roughly 3,000 athletes. One of the biggest draws was the fact that Mehock Field featured one of the very few 10 lane all-weather surfaces in the country and North America.

At the time, Castle explains some high school athletes had never run on or seen an all weather surface, with many getting down on their hands and knees to touch it.

The running finals of the 82nd Mansfield Mehock Relays will begin at 1pm on Saturday afternoon.
