The University of Pennsylvania Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has issued the following guidelines in conjunction with the Penn Relays which will be held the week of April 23, 2007. The following guidelines will be strictly enforced by the University of Pennsylvania police force.

  • ALL bags must be smaller than 11x17". Food must be contained in clear plastic bags. Sealed plastic water bottles and cardboard juice boxes must not be larger than 11x17".
  • Coolers, large backpacks, large gym bags, glass bottles and cans will NOT be permitted to be brought into the Penn Relays.
  • There will be security personnel at every entrance (including athlete entrances) to check contents of bags and your person upon entering the Penn Relays.
  • This procedure will take a little more time, so please allow for ample time to get into the facility each day. This goes for athletes as well.

The Penn Relays is the largest international sporting event in the United States this year. We hope you understand the necessary security adjustments, and that you are aware your safety is important to us. We appreciate your cooperation. Enjoy the Relays!
