About the event

2024 will mark Miles in Martinsville’s 6th consecutive one mile road race.

This event 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 one mile course be on a downhill section of the area’s iconic Dick & Willie Passage Trail.

The race will start near the intersection of the Uptown Connection Trail and the Dick & Willie Trail.  All ages, all speeds welcome.  We are planning two heats.  One for the speed demons and one for us normal folks.  Check out the course by clicking on the ROUTE MAP icon

Awards presentation and post-race gathering will take place at the Liberty Street Trailhead parking lot.  Runners will enjoy, snacks, beverages and awards ceremony following race.
