Route Map

Join us for 2017 The Light Up the Night 5K! This exciting 5K run through Uptown Martinsville is to celebrate the completion of the fall 2017 season of Girls on the Run & STRIDE!

Anyone who has been to a Girls on the Run & STRIDE 5K knows that it is unlike any other running event.  It is a celebration of and for the youth that have worked hard to complete the ten week season of Girls on the Run & STRIDE. By the day of the 5K, their enthusiasm is so unbridled that they are running around before the race! Positive energy abounds as the kids dance to warm-up music, get their hair "happied" and their faces "tattooed"!  

Our Light Up the Night 5K is a family friendly event that is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face!  Dress in your best Christmas attire or your tackiest sweater and meet us at the Uptown Farmers Market for a night you’ll never forget!  You will be so glad you joined us!

Awards will be given for the top three overall male and female finishers and to the top male and females in 5 year age groups beginning with 9 and under and ending with 70 and over.

Run time is 5:00 p.m. Packet pick-up will be held Friday, December 8th from 12-6:00 p.m. at the Martinsville Y and from 3:30-4:30 p.m. on Race Day at the Uptown Farmers Market.
