About Us

Durbin Race Management was founded by Steve Durbin in 2014.

Steve works with leaders of great communities and not-for-profit organizations, without whose help, our races would not be possible:

West KY Runners Club, SoIL Racing, Grand Rivers KY Tourism, Friends of LBL, Friends of Frozen Head State Park, Vienna/Johnson Co IL, Wartburg/Morgan Co TN, and Cascade HS 

Our goal has always been to bring runners to smaller communities to provide needed funds for local economies, trail improvements, and high school athletics.

Steve works with Gary Cantrell/Lazarus Lake on the Strolling Jim, and Barkley Fall Classic races.
