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.
