The Master’s University will host more than 1,500 athletes in Central Park on Saturday for its annual cross country invitational, a record number for the event now in its eighth year.

The dual collegiate-high school meet will feature eight races beginning at 7 a.m. and include the likes of UCLA, USC and Cal State Fullerton.

“The meet continues to grow,” said 16th-year Master’s head coach Zach Schroeder, whose men will race at 7 a.m., with his women going at 7:45. “I think the Santa Clarita Valley is such a hot spot for runners, and it’s a great place for teams to travel into. We’re excited to be a great host and to hopefully represent the SCV well.”

The Master’s University XC Invitational began in 2012 with 155 athletes from 17 colleges. On Saturday, Schroeder expects more than 40 colleges and universities to be represented, including the University of Michigan-Dearborn and Lewis Clark State College from Idaho.
