Route Map

Saturday, April 2, 2022, will mark the 12th running of the MARTINSVILLE HALF MARATHON & 5K. The Martinsville race courses present tough but fair challenges to joggers, walkers and competitive runners alike. Both races start and finish at the Martinsville-Henry County YMCA in uptown Martinsville.


The half marathon winds through scenic uptown Martinsville before entering the Uptown Connector Trail on its way to the community’s iconic Dick & Willie Passage rail trail. Runners will then run the entirety of the Dick & Willie before retracing their steps through uptown on their return to the finish line at the YMCA.  


5K participants run and walk the streets of Uptown Martinsville. With only a few gentle hills, the course presents a fast track for competitive runners and a scenic tour of the area for all.
