Indian Mud Run celebrating 10th anniversary with 100 obstacles in 10K

| June 15, 2022

Around 800 people have already registered for the Indian Mud Run to be held on Saturday, June 25. Parking is at Lake Park and vans will take people to the event.  The first wave is for pro men and women and will begin at 8 a.m. Registration can be completed at events.com or on race day.

Hubie Cushman said the length of the races vary from 10K, 5K and an extreme obstacle 3K. “We also have an option to do three laps that would be over 20 miles and over 300 obstacles. In celebration of our 10th anniversary, we are going to have 100 obstacles in the 10K. The 5K will have just over 40 but it is geared for first timers and the 5K will bypass all the really hard obstacles. I really want to drive home that point – the 5K is a much easier race.”

Many new obstacles are part of this year’s run. “We are blessed to have the obstacle build crew that puts on the World Championships as our build crew again this year. We won multiple awards last year as the best small OCR race in America and people say we are the best race in America to prepare for the World Championships.”

Alyssa Haines, Indian Mud Run Event Coordinator, said there are two very special groups coming this year – Enduring Warrior and More Heart than Scars. “These are amazing athletes who find opportunity in the obstacles they face in life and on this course. MHTS is bringing someone through our course on a wheelchair. This groups will be taking off at 10 and we would love the community to show up and support them at the start line.”

All money will go to first responders and the Coshocton Park District. Haines said, “We don’t receive a penny from this race. We do it because we love our community, and we love OCR. We put our heart, soul and so much of our time into making this event special. We would love for more locals to run, volunteer or just come up and hang out in the festival area. There will be Wooly Pig beer, music and food trucks in the festival area with obstacles that are all very spectator friendly.”

There will be a kids’ course again and registration is on race day only.
