Lace up your running shoes because it’s time for the Ninth Annual Adrian Martinez Classic on Thursday, June 1, at Emerson Field in Concord. Run the one-mile race in your age category, try the first-timer’s mile if you haven’t run a competitive mile before, gather a team for the friends & family 4×400 relay, or just cheer on the other racers. Community races for runners of all abilities start at 4:30 p.m. and elite races featuring several Olympic medalists and national record-holders start at 6:30 p.m. All funds raised through on-site donations, race entry fees, and sponsorship are split between the Adrian Martinez Scholarship Fund, which supports the college aspirations of Concord Carlisle High School (CCHS) students, and the CCHS track and field/cross-country program.
