Mansfield Mehock Relays

Welcome back!

The NEW Mehock Field awaits you! It has been 87 years since the Mansfield Relays debuted at Stadium Field, where Mansfield Senior High School sits today. The site hosted future Olympians Jesse Owens, Harrison Dillard and Dave Mills, to name a few.

In 1964 the Mansfield Relays moved to its new home, a 10-lane behemoth with the first synthetic surface north of the Mason Dixon line. The field and meet was re-named for its founder Harry Mehock. With the new facility, the meet began drawing thousands of athletes from six states and Canada.

To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Mehock Field, the Mansfield City Schools invested permanent improvement funds to literally rebuild the track from the ground, up. In keeping with the tradition, the track retains its 10-lane, 42-inch wide profile. The pole vault and long jump venues have been upgraded, with the pole vault being re-located for better viewing.

The metal stands on the front straightaway have been scrapped and replaced with new aluminum bleachers at the finish line. Plenty of green space now exists around the perimeter of the track for team areas.

An Elite Meet needs to provide a showcase for the best-of-the-best. That said, we will again host the  "Mehock Mile.” This invitation only event will feature the ten best male and ten best female milers in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Canada, in a competition to claim bragging rights as the Region’s best miler.

I hope you will consider the Mehock Relays in your 2014 track schedule as we build on this festival of athletics and outstanding performances.
