Official Website


Here's the story behind this race: Bradlee LaMontagne's life was cut way too short at the age of 21, December 2020. He was a Junior at Johns Hopkins and also the Captain of the wrestling team. He loved wrestling. He started wrestling in elementary school with Great Neck Wrestling Club and continued on until college.  He was two time captain of the Cox Wrestling team and a state finalist and two time state placer, region champion, and had over 120 varsity wins. 

One Thanksgiving of note, 2019, Bradlee wanted to enjoy Thanksgiving just like everyone else. Except when you're a wrestler, as some of you know, wrestlers cut weight so it's not as easy to just eat and lay around like most of us get to do. Around the holidays it's pretty torturous especially when everyone is eating until their buttons pop off. Well, Brad wanted to eat and eat big, so he did what anyone would do, he ran 15.04 miles Thanksgiving morning😳!!  Let me say it again, 15.04 MILES JUST TO EAT💪 That is BRADASS! 

Let me preface this by saying, this is not 15 miles and it's not Thanksgiving morning. But it is 6.2 miles and is in Seashore (or First Landing as it is now called), similar to where he ran. I think he would be proud of all of us, if we could do half of what he did (or a little less than half) to raise money for wrestlers scholarships and to celebrate his life and legacy.
