Meanwhile, this year’s 2021 Pepsi Florida Relays event will be hosting a limited number of participants from invited schools only, while there will be no appearances for high school athletes nor will there be unattached or post-collegiate athletes competing – unless they are from a participating school – in an effort to decrease the risks associated with the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic.
Another strong lineup of programs, including several from the SEC, has been assembled for this year’s meeting. The hosts Florida Gators will take on representatives from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Kentucky, Miami, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Southern California (USC), and Virginia Tech.
