Maniac Corner! Often Imitated. Never Duplicated.

The Williams Route 66 Marathon prides itself on providing a memorable experience for all participants, but we offer some special incentives for the members of the Marathon Maniacs, Half Fanatics, and 50 States Marathon Club! No race rolls out the red carpet for these frequent marathoners and half marathoners quite like we do. Maniac Corner features the following FREE race day benefits for members of these groups:

  • Private VIP Tent and fenced-in outdoor area both pre-and post-race staffed with volunteers to ensure a great experience
  •  Professional group photo before the start of the race, made available at no charge to members.
  • Private Restrooms
  • Private Gear Check
  • Private supply of post-race food, Gatorade, water, soft drinks and lots of beer from Welltown Brewing
  • Recognition of all three clubs prior to the start of the race
  • Complimentary booth at the health and fitness expo where the three clubs can promote their organizations and hand out wristbands to their members for access to Maniac Corner. Now you can get your gear without the shipping costs!

Maniac Corner draws runners from across the country to the Williams Route 66 Marathon. Danielle Hastings, from Elgin, South Carolina is a member of both Marathon Maniacs and the 50 States Marathon Club and has run more than 47 marathons. “Maniac Corner is truly an experience like no other! Route 66 attracts so many members of all three clubs – it’s like a huge reunion and a block party on the road! Having a place to relax with your friends after the race is awesome, and it’s one of the reasons I come back to Route 66 every year.”

Andrea Amend from Wisconsin became a Maniac with the Williams Route 66 Marathon. “I came here because of Maniac Corner,” Amend said. “It was an excellent experience, with places to sit and personal gear check.
