No Sports: Marble1 Racing Is The New Trend of 2020

Marble Runs

Americans have been finding new ways to amuse themselves now many sports have been postponed due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)—leading to a burst of interest in marble racing.

This is something new and fun which is proving to be a great replacement for the NBA, the NHL, MLS. and the MLB, which have all been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. President Donald Trump declared a national emergency in response to the pandemic on March 13, 2020.

The sport sees where marbles released down a track, and whichever marble gets to the bottom or the end first will claim the victory. According to the Marble League Wiki, all competitors have to be 16mm (0.6 inches) in diameter and there can be disqualifications for incidents such as pushing a block off the track, blocking another marble, jumping into another lane or false starts.
