Adrian Martinez Classic

Adrian Martinez Classic

June 4,

Concord, MA

Stay tuned for 2015 Info! The Adrian Martinez Classic presented by HOKA ONE ONE began as a tribute to a great runner and wonderful young man, Adrian Martinez. Adrian was a champion Miler at Concord-Carlisle High School, team leader, and all around great guy. The summer after he graduated from Williams College, Adrian suffered a heart attack while playing soccer with friends (another of his great pastimes). Adrian's passing was a sad shock to all who knew him, but the Martinez Classic is a way to honor his life by doing something he truly loved: running with friends.

The Martinez Classic serves as a fundraiser for the Adrian Martinez Scholarship Fund at Concord-Carlisle High School (which is administered by the CCHS Scholarship Fund), and for the Friends of CCHS Track & Field, which supports the Track & Field teams at CCHS.

"Immediately after finishing, I went up to the finish line official, put my hand on his shoulder, and asked, 'That was a full Mile, right?' I wanted to make sure it was real! He looked at me with a confused face and answered, 'Yeah….a full Mile.'"
