After six years in business, The Battlegrounds continues to grow in terms of participants (last year’s race included runners from 29 states) and recognition. It is the Missouri's only permanent venue that is an OCR World Championships qualifying race.
THE BATTLEGROUNDS at Cedar Lake in St. Louis, is the Midwest’s only permanent mud run obstacle course, and obstacle course with its very own vineyard! It offers a 5k and 5 mile running option along with 30+ military themed obstacles. It is truly where “Life is better Battled”. This race has been getting a lot of publicity behind the scenes with OCR Warrior and the city’s very own KSDK News Channel 5. I had to come check this out for myself.
