Indian Mud Run volunteers hosting cleanup day

| March 18, 2019

COSHOCTON – With spring just around the corner it’s time to get out and clear the Lake Park hiking trails for summer fun. The Indian Mud Run crew is hosting a trail a cleanup and clearing day on Saturday, March 30 at the former Hilltop Golf Course.

The winter weather, as well as the recent logging, has left the trails so many use year round covered with debris. The IMR crew is looking for volunteers to come out and enjoy the day with them. They will begin at 8 a.m. at the clubhouse. Volunteers have the choice of working all day 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., 8 a.m. to noon or noon to 4 p.m. If you are only able to donate a couple hours just come when you can, there will be someone at the clubhouse to greet you. The Lake Park District will be supplying lunch and work gloves for all who help. The Indian Mud Run crew, headed by founder Hubie Cushman, encourages volunteers who are able to bring their chainsaws, rakes or any other tools that may help clear the trails.

Whether you know the trails, or have never experienced them, this will be a great day to explore nature and show pride in what the park district has to offer. By helping you will also become a key part in making the 2019 Indian Mud Run a safe and beautiful experience for all who participate on June 22.

The Indian Mud Run is a world class Obstacle Course Race which attracts athletes from nearly every state and beyond our borders. All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Park and our local volunteer fire departments. Coshocton County also receives a huge economic boost as well as the opportunity to watch some of the greatest athletes in their sport during race weekend.

If you have any questions in regards to trail day, Saturday, March 30, you can contact Hubie Cushman at 740-502-5013 or Amy Taylor at 740-502-7208. Inquiries for volunteering on race day are welcomed and encouraged.
