The Palatine Relays meet is the second longest running meet in Illinois history, surpassed only by the IHSA State meet.  The Palatine Relays has seen performances from future Olympians as well as numerous Illinois track and field stars on both the girls and guys sides.  Jackie Joyner Kersee, Mike Durkin, Sunder Nix, and Evan Jager all competed.  State record holders Al Eck, Bill Bahnfleth, Harlan South, and Chris Hercules have all competed.  Cross country state champions Tom Graves, Bob Watson, Steve Finley, Evan Jager, and Jack Keelan have all competed.  For more than 80 years, the Palatine Relays has been a showcase of track and field excellence.

This page compiles the entire history of the Palatine Relays, including all team champions and event champions.  I have also begun work on a Top 10 performance list for each event that has been included in the Relays.  These events include many of the now normal metric events as well as many retired yard distances and the 3000 meter steeplechase.
