Our Objective at DRM

Our mission is to provide unique races that are:

Fun to run courses offering a nice variety:  including a beautiful easy trail run, a road course, a stroll through the countryside, a party atmosphere-timed Series of events on horse tracks and other loop courses, a record setting 100/50 miler, and one crazy hard test of your endurance and sanity.

Offer great value:  combining reasonable pricing with high tech performance shirts that are gender specific, nice caps, and other thoughtful amenities.

Runner friendly:  you won't find friendlier, more helpful support anywhere.

And most important... leave you with great memories.

After all.  We want you to come back year after year!


We currently offer eight unique races, ranging from 10k to 100 miles, from flat, fast courses, to an extreme, "I would just love to finish"  course, and one pretty cool Series.


Durbin Race Management partners with experienced groups and runners such as the West Kentucky Runners Club, and So. IL Running,  and  focuses on providing high-quality events - we will do what we can to meet your expectations. 

Steve teams up with the notorious Lazarus Lake (think Barkley Marathon - the Race that Eats it's Young) on two of these events:  

The Strolling Jim 40 mile run/marathon/10k; now in it's 39th year!

and the OMG Barkley Fall Classic... already a legend after three short years.


Please Note: This site is not meant to contain all information, just give a brief overview of each event, with a link to find out more, and to register. So look around the site, and if you have any comments or questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.


We hope to see you again!  Either at any of these fine races, or at one of yours.
