COSHOCTON – Century National Bank announced last year that they will be constructing an additional branch in Coshocton that will be located on North Third Street. The bank donated the light poles that were on the property to the Indian Mud Run. Hubie Cushman, event organizer said, “Century National Bank is getting ready to start their construction for a building on this lot and when I was in the Downtowner Plaza branch talking to Bob Bigrigg, I asked about those poles. They decided that we could have the poles to make some new obstacles.”

“I am real grateful to Vic Allen of Allen Construction who helped me get them down and to Beccy Porteus and Bob Bigrigg of Century National Bank for donating these to the Indian Mud Run. We’re probably going to cut them in half – I am hoping the Career Center can fabricate some pieces for a framework for an obstacle. They did a lot of work for us last year and we appreciated it.”

Cushman said, “Our biggest need this year is for volunteers because we have expanded so much – our registrations are double what they were this time last year – and we have went from a 3.1 mile course to a 6.6 mile course. We actually have two courses – an easier course for the beginners and a hard core course. Because we are now a World Championship qualifier race we need people to be out on the course to monitor the obstacles. If someone fails an obstacle we take down their number. It’s a really easy job – it’s amazing to watch the athletes attack this course.”

“That’s how Vic got involved – he was a monitor last year.”

“We also need people to help with building construction for some of the obstacles and to monitor on race day. There are also some other volunteer duties needed.

Stephanie Slifko is coordinating the volunteer effort for the 2017 Indian Mud Run in Coshocton which will be held on Saturday, June 24 at Lake Park beginning at 8 a.m. If you are interested in volunteering you can e-mail Stephanie at: [email protected].
