The VIRTUAL 10th Annual Martinsville Half Marathon & 5K


The neat thing about our sport is that you don’t need a crowd or even a partner to crank out those long runs.  It can be and often is a solitary endeavor!  A time to think.  A time to relax.  A time to go at your own pace!


The CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) pandemic has wreaked havoc on the running community and on all institutions affecting our daily lives.  We at Miles in Martinsville are still reeling from the cancellation of the 10th Annual Martinsville Half Marathon & 5K.  We know that area runners share the disappointment.
