Prestonsburg, KY - 400 University Dr.


October 18, 2014 - 8:00 AM


Full, half, 10K, and Kids fun run


The start and finish line will be at Archer Clinic (400 University Drive, Prestonsburg KY 41653) for all three races. The course is flat and fast. The HALF MARATHON and the 10K will be an "out and back course" and the FULL MARATHON will circle around the Dewey Lake area on Lake Drive. Very pretty and partly shaded. There will be water and nutrition every 2 miles or more. There will be restrooms at the start and finish line plus plenty of parking. There will be a "bag check-in" at the start and finish line. There will be porta-pottys along the course as well. Police, Fire and first responders will be on the course as well as several volunteers to make this a great, well-organized event. The event will be professionally timed and a photo bucket will be available shortly after the race. Any questions? Call race director Brent Graden at 606-226-9353 or at

Charity Information

More Information

IMPORTANT !!!!!!! (IMPORTANT) DEAR FELLOW RUNNERS ..... It is with great sadness that i have to announce that we will BE RESCHEDULING the EASTERN KENTUCKY MARATHON WEEKEND. The new date will be set for 10/18/14 at 8:00am, For those of you with questions please email me at We truly apologize for the inconvenience. Every fiber in my being says to carry on but there are some reasons behind it : #1 The City of Prestonsburg has recently been declared an emergency area due to the recently heaving flooding ... most notably Mays branch and other areas where the roads have been shut down and there are whole sidewalks missing and sinkholes. a little dangerous to be running there. #2. my medals were delayed due to the size of the medals (lol). they could not get production done in time. #3 (but not a huge issue...). They are calling for major storms on Saturday with lighting and possible 90% chance of rain which could also lead to more flooding and very bad roads. After talking with some local race directors I believe this is the best course of action for safety first. When we put on this race I want to make sure that it is the best possible course and experience possible. I am truly sorry to change your plans. I live and breathe races too and i know how crushing this information is. Again, we will issue refunds for the race promptly. if you want to sign up for the 10/18 race then please sign up again at Thank you for your time. We will have this event in the Fall and we will support the building of a new Floyd County Animal Shelter.
