Attention fitness buffs, health enthusiasts and action addicts: it's time for you to get your mud on at The Battlegrounds, St. Louis' largest permanent mud run obstacle course. Our 30+ military-inspired obstacles are super-sized and guaranteed to test the endurance and mental toughness of even the fittest athlete. In addition to being the industry's premier permanent course, The Battlegrounds is a destination, so join us for a fun-filled day of music, activities, vendors giveaways and crazy challenges throughout the festival area. Our race features plenty of perks (spectator-friendly with many vantage points to view the runners) and freebies (free spectator admission, free kids zone for kids 12 and under, free parking, and free gear check.) After conquering either our 5 or 3.2 mile course, clean up at our on-site showering facilities so you can continue the celebration with a well-earned beer ... or venture over to Cedar Lake Cellars winery located steps away from The Battlegrounds. Feel good about your muddy accomplishment and your donation to a worthy cause (proceeds benefit The BackStoppers.)
