Bog in the Burg this weekend

CORBIN — By Charlotte Underwood / Staff writer

Looking for some fun in the mud?

Look no further than Williamsburg’s Bog in the Burg, which returns this weekend.

The annual event, which takes place Friday and Saturday, is sponsored by Williamsburg and Whitley County Fiscal Court.

The event raises money for the Williamsburg City Police Shop with a Cop program.

The muddy fun starts Friday with ATV registration at 5 p.m. and the actual mud slinging beginning at 7 p.m.

On Saturday, four-wheel drive registration begins at 3 p.m. Start time for the event is 6 p.m.

Gate admission is $5 and children ages 12 and under are free.

Entry fees of $10 apply to racing the ATV event Friday, plus gate fees.

Entry fees of $20 plus gate fees apply to the four-wheel drive event on Saturday.

First, second and third place awards will be presented in each class.

The popular Women’s Foot Run in the Mud will also return with the winner earning $100. Lace-up shoes must be worn for the race.

Last year, the Shop with a Cop program was able to serve 168 children at Christmas with about $100 each. This year’s plan is to serve some 200 children, said Bobby Freeman, a Williamsburg police detective.

“It’s a fun way to support the Shop with a Cop Program,” Freeman said.

He said he also wanted to thank everyone who donates and helps with the program.

“We couldn’t do it without everyone’s help,” Freeman said.

For more information, contact Bobby Freeman at 606-304-7539. For directions to the event, contact Williamsburg Tourism at 606-549-0530. Friday age categories are 2-6 with battery operated ATVs; 7- to 15-year-olds, 50 cc to 90 cc; 16 to adult, two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and two-wheel drive sport/chain driven. Saturday class one is 34 inches or less, class two, 35 to 39.5 inches, class three 40 inches and over. Class four is for Outlaw bikes.
