The Battlegrounds™, the Midwest’s best permanent mud run obstacle course, is guaranteed to challenge even the fittest athlete. Experience our 5k / 3.2 mile or five-mile run with 30+ military-themed obstacles where you will face your fears along with mud, water and ice. Bring your friends and family… At The Battlegrounds, spectators & children are welcome and parking is always FREE. Plus, we offer music, activities, vendors and fun challenges throughout the festival site.
After you complete the run, wash away the mud at our on-site shower facilities and stay for our after-party celebration…or join your friends at our adjacent Cedar Lake Cellars winery.
Take your pick of 6 paths of varying difficulties- 1 being easiest, 6 being hardest.
If you fall, swim through the 8 feet deep pit and climb a ladder out.
