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.

Most obstacles you will face at any OCR race that are surrounded by awesome scenery! Want to push your limits....this is the race to try and conquer. Challenging terrain and obstacles and the coolest awards bling you will ever receive. Class act race!
Awesome OCR Race
One of the best OCR races I've participated in! Terrain was super challenging, with a varied topography- many hills, canals, valleys, etc... The most amount of obstacles I have negotiated and they were fun! but also very challenging.
This race could be the site of a future NORAM!
IMO this is a must do race. Great use of natural terrain and inventive obstacles. Well organized. Great competition. Not another race like it.
A Great Family Time
This race is definitely deserving of 5 stars. My husband has run it for three years in a row and wouldn’t miss it! Our kids love the kid’s course too! It keeps getting better and better each year!
It gets better every year! The trails were marked well, there was very little to no back ups at obstacles, and the course was very unique and challenging.
awesome race! loved the obstacles and the lay out. Cant wait to do it again next year!
Best OCR race in the US
The Indian Mud Run is the most challenging OCR race I have competed in. The course is amazing and the obstacles are tough. But what i like most is the “ family” feeling you get at the race. The town is so supportive, the mayor was there! Hubie does a great job. If your going to travel to a race next year, this should be your destination! 5 stars!
Best OCR hands down!
Out of all the Obstacle course races I have done, Indian Mud Run is by far my favorite! If I could only do one race a year this would be it! Hubie really goes out of his way and puts his heart and soul into this race. It’s very technical and challenging but so much fun! The 6-7 mile course is packed full of obstacles that will challenge you physically and mentally. The scenery on course is beautiful and the natural terrain obstacles are second to none. I would highly recommend this course to anyone!
Hidden gem of OCR
I've been to several local once a year OCR races and they've ranged from terrible to decent but Indian mud run changes all of that! IMR put on a world class race with dozens of unique obstacles and masterful use of the terrain- they've once again made an amazing event that everyone in OCR should experience

First time Indian Mud Runner, long time OCR...er. When I sign up for a race, especially one I have not experienced before, I like to do my research and be as prepared as possible. For me, this ensures as successful a race as possible. So going in, I knew it would be 6-7 miles of lots and lots of obstacles. I had never seen so many obstacles packed into such a distance. I wondered how much running we could actually do with so many obstacle stops.
All of prerace went smoothly with no problems, IMR has their transportation, registration, and start/finish festival down. Local beer and local coffee companies were great to see there. But when I saw the food stand selling chicken, shrimp, and fish tacos, I knew where I’d be headed to after I was done. And it did not disappoint, food was delicious.
Now the race itself...IMR does not hold back on the obstacles, obviously, with 72 total. But they also don’t hold back on the terrain, it was some of the most technical and challenging terrain I’ve seen at an OCR. Rocky inclines so steep you have to either rappel down with a rope, or climb up with the same said rope. I’m no rock climber, and the heights were considerable on most of them, so I was unsure on these obstacles. Definitely a time to focus, go slow, and very carefully.
My favorite obstacles on course had to be all the crazy rigs that IMR comes up with, and the biggest man-made water slide I’ve ever done. Nuclear Ninja Rings, Force 5 Gibbons, the Red Rig, and Indian Skull Valley make sure that your upper body and grip strength will be tested thoroughly by race’s end. Much more challenging and fun to figure out that your standard rig. And really, who doesn’t love a water slide? This one is huge and so much fun, coming at a great spot of the course where you could really use a cold dip to revitalize yourself.
Overall, for not having done IMR before, I was very impressed by the race and how it it run. It’s a big time challenge with a small town family feel. I’ll be back next year to see what they come up with next!
