About the Meet:
The Adrian Martinez Classic began as a tribute to a great runner and wonderful young man, Adrian Martinez. Adrian was a champion miler at Concord-Carlilse High School, team leader, and all around great guy. The summer after he graduated from Williams College, Adrian suffered a fatal sudden cardiac arrest 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 Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle), and for the Friends of CCHS Track & Field, which supports the Track & Field teams at CCHS.
