UpTown Martinsville Mile

Saturday, August 14, 2021

NEW VENUE- UpTown Martinsville 7:00pm race


Route Map

The UpTown Martinsville Mile is a salute to the historical allure of the one mile run.  What runner isn’t familiar with the first sub 4 minute mile run by Sir Roger Bannister.  Typically, runners experience the one mile run only as part of a track meet.  Most often at a high school or college track team event.  This race will not be run on a standard 400 meter track but rather at a unique venue. The UpTown Martinsville Mile will be run on a two lap course around the streets of  UpTown Martinsville.
