Here at Lloyd Clarke Sports, the safety and well-being of our customers and race participants is our highest priority. With all the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we have decided that is in the best interest of the runners, volunteers and staff to postpone the Trail of Payne 10k to a future date in the Fall.
Despite the low risk that we believe our event would pose, we cannot in good faith ask people to gather for a community event when everyone is being told to heed caution in crowded areas, and to isolate as much as possible.  We have spoken to many concerned runners about not wanting to risk attending and then missing out on completing the Race Series. We don’t want anyone to feel obligated to attend just to receive an award. By postponing the event to a later date, the Race Series standings will be more accurate and allow for a greater participation.
We will update all social media channels when a new race date has been confirmed. If any participants have a conflict with the new race date, we will be more than willing to transfer the registration to a different event or to a different runner. Registration for Trail of Payne will stay open until the new event date and packets for those registered will be available at date closer to the race.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.
Wishing all of you, your friends and loved ones health and safety.
Lloyd Clarke Sports





The 9th annual Trail of Payne 10K at Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park is a pure trail race you wont want to miss! This run promises to be one of the most unique in the area, so take advantage of our beautiful state park during and after the race.

After a brief park-road start, this challenging course is all trails. Expect every type of surface: packed dirt, roots, grass, soft sand and even a little mud. With trails that are winding & narrow, straight & wide, sunny & open or shady & dense, you won't be bored on this course.

Bring your friends and get ready to go off-road were gonna get dirty! This race has the potential to be very muddy depending on weather leading up to the event. 


Directions from Gainesville:

Drive south on 441 out of Gainesville. Continue on 441 past both entrances to Lake Wauburg. Just beyond the south entrance to Lake Wauburg turn left into Paynes Prarie Preserve State Park. Follow signs to race parking.
