The Battlegrounds Ninth Bi-Annual Mud Run
May 20$20. - $2017
The Battlegrounds, St. Louis’ largest permanent mud run obstacle course, will hold its ninth bi-annual race on Sat., May 20 beginning at 8 a.m. Runners can select to destroy either a 5k or five-mile mud run where they will experience the demands of more than 30 military-themed obstacles for those who want to test their physical and mental abilities. The Battlegrounds is located at 11008 Schreckengast Rd. in Wright City, Mo. next to Cedar Lake Cellars winery and event venue.
The Battlegrounds is St. Louis’ only permanent qualifying event venue for the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships (OCRWC). Runners can qualify for their upcoming international race, which is scheduled for Oct. 13 through 15, 2017 in Blue Mountain, Ontario.
Unlike its competition, The Battlegrounds features plenty of freebies including free spectator admission so guests can watch their loved ones from many course vantage points. Free parking, free gear check and a free kids’ mud zone area for children 12 and under are available, as well as the unusual amenity of on-site showers for mud run participants. Post-event activities include individual and group award presentations, a festival area with food and drinks, and walkable access to the adjacent Cedar Lake Cellars winery.
All participants must be 18 years of age or older. The race costs $105 for premium time slots and $85 for general admission through Jan. 1, 2017; $120 for premium and $100 for general before Jan. 27; $130 and $110 before Feb. 24; $140 and $120 before March 24; $150 and $130 before April 28, and $160 and $140 before May 20.
