The 2017 race will feature Dewayne Montgomery Coach Pain” as the start line motivator. New in 2017 the Indian Mud Run will offer 2 race lengths and a new start and finish line area. We also have a 3 lap option (20 miles-150 obstacles) and all 3 lap finishers earn an authentic American Indian made arrow upon completion.

The competitive waves will be 6 plus miles long with 50 plus obstacles. The non-competitive waves will be around a 5k length and offer close to 35 obstacles. The terrain is an obstacle itself and the course will challenge you with world class obstacles.

Some of the obstacles include 20’ cargo net climb, Swivel ladder climb, natural rock climb with ropes, steep hills, Net climb over ravine, Cliff climb on rope ladder, Log traverse, 165’ water slide, 20’ high climbing wall, mud pit and many more. The competitive course is mandatory obstacle completion with bands. The competitive course will have the above obstacles plus the weaver, Rig, walls, rappel, and end with the ¾ mile gauntlet of Skull valley, Irish table, Rope traverse, 40 foot monkey bars, Dragons back, Rope climb, Rig, Half pipe wall and slide into pond, Destroyer and Wall hanger. 4 of the gauntlet obstacles are signature obstacles from past Obstacle Course Racing World Championships and are used with permission from the obstacles owners.

The top 3 finishers in each 5 year age group will receive an authentic American Indian made Tomahawk but you must run in the competitive waves to be eligible for the Tomahawk. The top 15 in each age group will have their name on the back of the following year’s shirt. After the race you get a free can beer (not draft) and a free ride on our Blob pillow. Racers also get a cool medal, and a beautiful shirt. Shirts include the top 500 placers from the previous year’s race. We also have a separate kid’s course.

Our mission is to provide the best mud run possible. We strive to have the best course, a great shirt, a cool finisher’s medal, fun post-race entertainment and good food all at a fair price. We have an awesome course with spectacular rock formations, great views, super obstacles and easy access with a 4 lane highway less than a quarter mile away. Some of our best obstacles are very spectator friendly so bring a camera, some friends and a big smile.

Awesome race!

IMR is a fantastic race! The terrain is beautiful, the venue great, the people wonderful, the obstacles intense. Bucket list race!

Bucket List Race!!

Jul 08, 2019 by Dustin Radney

This is the third year running IMR and it just keeps getting better! The use of the terrain is incredible, the obstacles are top notch, the staff is super friendly and attentive, the merchandise is great quality and priced competitively, and the podium prizes are second to none. Every winner in the 5 year age group gets and authentic hand made tomahawk! This is one of those races that lean more towards the obstacles than the running. The obstacles are challenging, creative, and really fun! I come from Florida every year to run this and I'll definitely be back next year!!

This is by far the best race I’ve ever done! I have run spartan, tough mudder, savage, bone frog, warrior dash, terrain race, etc. and this race is my absolute FAVORITE!!! It is an extremely challenging course but it is also a fun course! The obstacles are unique and fun but challenging! I absolutely LOVE this course! If I could only run one race a year I would definitely pick the Indian mud run!! If you haven’t run this course already, definitely sign up!! You won’t be disappointed!!

Spartan or IMR

Jul 07, 2019 by Robbie Dunn

Was between choosing to do the IMR OCR or the upcoming Spartan in Ohio. I choose IMR as it was my local event. Cost was cheaper than to do the Spartan but wasn't sure I would get the challenge I was looking for in the Spartan.

Within the first half mile I realized I may be taking on more than I bargained for (LOL). This course is beyond challenging and will certainly push you to your limits. I got stuck on several obstacles finding myself making multiple attempts to successfully complete the one I failed. This is not a negative. The reason we do OCR is for the challenge if they were all successfully completed on the first try is it really a challenge?

Strongly advise anyone who is considering this event to buy good equipment. A good OCR glove and shoes. Do not bring your daily sneakers or a cheap pair of trail shoes. I promise you will regret not being prepared and/or cheaping out.

F&#@ling Awesome!

Couldn't make it this year, but Indian Mud Run was, and is,
the very definition of an OCR race that you dream about..

Favorite race of the year

Jul 06, 2019 by Maira Toenjes

This year was my second time running this race and will continue to be the one I look forward to the most each year. Excellent use of terrain and natural elements incorporated into obstacles. This race is not for the faint. It will challenge you in every way. Lots of STEEP ups and downs and technical single lane trails. The obstacles keep getting better but not impossible. This race makes you want to go home and train to come back better. It’s ran by some incredibly welcoming and friendly people who are as humble as they come. I tell all my OCR Friends in Florida where I live, if they are traveling out of state for a race this year, this is the one to go to!

Exhilerating exhaustion

Jul 06, 2019 by Stefanie Weese

I knew going out for my first try at IMR would be incredible. Hubie is innovative and his own love of racing was bound to give you an awesome experience.

I underestimated my expectations and had my hiney handed to me. The technical terrain combined with the intensity of grip after grip obstacles was exhausting but yet I couldn't wait to come around the next bend to see what was next.
72 obstacles in 6.6 miles in truly an amazing feat. Hubie's use of the naturescape with the rock cliffs made for some interesting climbs.
When I finished the course, I was proud to accept that medal. Major kudos to those that made podium and kept their bands in the competitive waves.
I look forward to 2020 and have to say, IMR will be my race to see what improvements I have made as a person and athlete!!
Keep up the great work.....IMR in little Coshocton, OH is fast becoming "The Race to get to"

Best in the Midwest or US

Jul 06, 2019 by Dave Barnes

I just started running competitive mud runs in 2017. This course has everything you Want. I ran GBC w Jamie And Gwynn Case. They recommended IMR so I registered for 2018. After running this became my favorite course. As a wrestler, Hubie knows where I’m coming from. I brought this back to my folk at the Iron Rig and said you gotta do this. The Iron Rig was on board and didn’t disappoint. Harder than 2018. 2019 was epic. Though I didn’t finish where I wanted that course in my opinion is the toughest that I’ve done. As taxing as a Spartan beast. The elevation change, rope climbs and number of legit obstacles. Very challenging. Love the Hubster. Beast of a course. No flufff. Price is great Local venders. #imrrocks
