Purpose of this event
Marina's Miles is a 5K road race/walk to raise money for a college scholarship to be awarded to an Oyster River High School Student in memory of Marina Slavin, who died at the age of 20 from having too big a heart (medically, she had an enlarged heart caused by an infection). Marina was known for enthusiastically greeting friends - running & hugging as if it'd been years ... when it may have only been hours. She reached out to new classmates, discouraged teammates, new neighbors. She loved the people in her life passionately, and embraced life and all it had to offer (especially fall leaves, running in mud, rain, ice cream...). But she was really probably best known for running barefoot! :)
This event is sanctioned by USA Track & Field

Free door prize raffle after the race!

Plentiful, free, on-site parking.

Lots of fun!
