The marathon cutoff time is 6 hours 30 minutes. Persons not finished by 1 PM will be transported to the finish for safety reasons. If you feel that you cannot finish the marathon in the alloted time, please consider entering the half marathon event.

New Location & Course This Year!
The Andy Payne Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K Run will be held on a new and improved course and Lake Stanley Draper this year!

The Start/Finish area will be located at the marina area on the west side of the lake. For information on how to get to the event, click below for link to map with driving instructions.


Information About The Courses
The Andy Payne Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K Run courses are all new for 2013! They all start and finish near the park pavilions at the Lake Stanley Draper marina area. Each route is a single out and back run clock wise to the turn points around the lake. The terrain is varied and roads are winding. There will be more tree cover and shelter from the wind than in years past but the best thing is NO MORE LAPS!

Andy Payne History
Andy Hartley Payne (born November 16, 1907, died December 1977) was the winner of the Transcontinental Footrace staged in 1928. He ran the 3,423.5 mile (5,509.6 km) route from Los Angeles to New York City, much of it along U.S. Route 66, in 573 hours, 4 minutes, 34 seconds, (84 days) averaging 6 miles per hour.

Payne, a member of the Cherokee tribe, grew up in Claremore, Oklahoma which was one of the check point towns along the route of the race. His father was a friend of Will Rogers and had worked on the ranch of the latter's family during his youth.

The footrace was organized to promote U.S. Route 66 which had recently been built as a simple, well-paved route across the country, and dubbed "the main street of America". First prize was $25,000 which Payne used to pay off the mortgage on his father's farm.
