POMEROY — The Meigs County Chamber of Commerce recently conducted the second annual Who’s Your Mudder? 5K Mud Run.
The chamber worked with the Meigs County Health Department who secured a grant through Together with Diabetes.
The event had 31 runners. In the Under 16 category, Jasper Roush and Rhanda Cross won. Cheyenne Gorslene and Austin Wilson took the 16-24 group. The 25-34 section was won by Beth Fergerson and Jeremy Roush. Sue Oliver won the 35-50 group. In the 51 years old and older group, Aimee Imbrosciano and Don Tillis emerged victorious.
“We are grateful for everyone who participated in the mud run as well as those who came out to help,” stated Dan Short, president of the Meigs chamber.
The race course spanned most of the fairgrounds. Runners began in front of the Thompson building, dashed across the top of the fairgrounds, and then faced the race track. Participants finished in the same place they began.
Obstacles were also found throughout the race. They included a slide, several crawl-throughs, muddy hills, a mud pit, rope cube crawl through, and many others.
Chester, Racine and Rutland fire departments helped to wet down the track.
Sponsors included Home National Bank, Quality Windows, Kona Ice, Ohio Valley Bank, Meigs County Golf Course, Jack’s Septic Service, Pleasant Valley Hospital, Farmers Bank, University of Rio Grande, and Peoples Bank. The water was donated by Culligan Water.
