One more photo from the weekend - thank you to the Martinelli Family. There are more important things in the world than a virtual track meet. In the end, the Martinez Classic is a small thing, but we are grateful to all who participated, timed, cheered, took photos, and talked trash - you've made the world a little brighter this past weekend.

A few photos from the event so far and a couple updates:
First - in the Tracksmith virtual club challenge, Concord-Carlilse holds a VERY narrow lead over Cambridge Sports Union, with Hingham in third. The club with the most participants gets a party hosted at the Trackhouse in Boston (when such gatherings are safe).
Second - some of our information flyers went out with incorrect dates, so the Virtual Martinez Classic will continue through Monday night, and you can submit your results as late as Tuesday!

As many of you have probably guessed, we are cancelling the Adrian Martinez Classic this year.

Disappointing, yes - but a track meet is a minor thing at a time when so many are suffering extreme hardship. Let us focus on the important things: staying safe, looking out for one another, and sticking together.

More than anything else, the Martinez Classic is a celebration of running and the running community. To that end, we are looking into the possibility of a virtual Martinez Classic - please stay tuned for details! In the meantime, weather the storm... we'll all have brighter days ahead...

Heartbreaking is the only way to describe the loss of someone so well loved and highly regarded. Gabriele Grunewald’s life was much more than loss though. Gabe has been a fighter, a role-model of bravery and toughness. She has been a champion of sport and of life, a paradigm of the power of self-belief, strength and hard work. Gabe has embodied the connections of love and friendship that can form on the track. She has been an example of all that is great about our sport.

Gabe’s career was defined by amazing days in spite of incredibly difficult ones. If there is one professional athlete who’s story can inspire generations of athletes in our sport, it’s Gabe. Thank you.
