THE BATTLEGROUNDS™ is St. Louis' largest permanent mud run obstacle course. In addition to being a premier course, THE BATTLEGROUNDS™ is a destination! So come out and make a day of it. Our course is spectator friendly with almost half of the obstacles within view. Music, activities, vendors and fun challenges throughout the festival site. Plus, there is a kids course for the little ones so bring out the family. After conquering 5 miles and 30+ obstacles utilize the shower facilities, stay for the party at THE BATTLEGROUNDS™, have a meal at Cedar Lake Cellars or sit by the lake and sip some wine (or beer!).
Participate as a team and work with your fellow soldiers to complete missions and remember no solider left behind. Or if your tough enough, go it alone!

A Splash for the entire family
Just wow. Even with a little rain delay such a wonderful rain. My children were able to participate. My son LOVED jumping off the Drop Zone. He even went a second time to win a prize for his sister. We were able to watch the Gauntlet Challenge which was just awe inspiring.
Best in the Midwest
The Battlegrounds knows how to hold a race. The volunteers and staff work perfectly in sync. The obstacles are challenging and the course is different every time. Great course for beginners and seasoned veterans. I also love the organizations they donate to.
Splash was a Blast!
Gorgeous venue with spectacular obstacles and tons of mud! In addition to a great race, there was tons of fun for every member of the family. I hope to attend every year.
