Steve Brand's San DiegoTrack Guidebooks

All of the San Deigo Track Guidebooks are now available.
The original book was published by Rick Smith in 1965 followed by another in 1971 (see below for scans of both). Then there was a gap where none were published for 19 years.
There was no book for 1973 and there was a gap where no book was produced between 1996 and 2000.
Many of the original books were lost but we were able to find some of the old Zip drives with InDesign, Quark Express, and PDF versions intact. Others we just had to scan and use an Optical Character Recognition program to extract the data. The books below include 13 that were never published in paper form (2009 and 2012 through 2023).

Updated San Diego Records, All Time Lists, and State Champs
Updated 26 January 2024
Boys     Girls
The All-Time lists, San Diego Records, and State Champions used to be in each guide-book so only the last one was current.
We've stopped including this info to make the guidebook smaller if you're inclined to print it out. The up-to-date info is here.

Scroll down for books prior to 2005.

Books from 2004 and earlier
I don't have readable digital copies for the books prior to 2005 so I scanned the paper versions and converted them to searchable PDFs using an Optical Character Recognition program. Because OCR conversions are not always perfect, I've included both the original scan and the OCR results below. That said, I do think that the OCR scans are very good. A spot check didn't come up with any obvious errors, but it'd be too time-consuming to check every result. If you see something in an OCR version that you think is an issue, take a look at the Paper Scan. Also, the photos tend to look better in the paper versions.

There was a 19-year gap between the 1971 book and the 1990 book.


The two books below are the original guide books from Rick Smith. The 1971 book was scanned from a copy of the original book, but the 1965 book was scanned from a xerox copy of the book, as I don't have the original. I think it's complete, but I'm not 100% certain as there are only 27 pages.
