May 20th, 2017 Race
Two race lengths to choose from:
Battlegrounds Full Challenge: 5 mile
This challenge is the original 5 mile mud run, packed with 30+ obstacles to test your mental and physical endurance. Push your boundaries, size up your strength and find out how much mud you can handle in one day!
Cadet Course: 5k (3.2 mile)
If you’d rather get your feet muddy before trying the full Battlegrounds challenge, then this is the race for you. Still tough, a little less intense, but tons of fun.

WHAT YOU GET:
Looking for tough competition? Try the 8 a.m. Competitive Wave
The 5 mile competitive wave is meant to be the most physically challenging experience for our participants with similar abilities. This option is only available at the 8 a.m. race time, so be sure to register as we are limited to 250 runners who can maintain an 8 minute 30-second mile pace. The elite wave is a competitive event, and we offer start-to-finish chips to ensure accurate timing for each participant.
The 5 Mile course is not only longer, it has more difficult terrain, and includes a few more obstacles and special surprises that will be unique to the competitive wave. If you are unable to complete an obstacle, you will be disqualified from receiving an award.
Competitive Wave timing
Each person competing in the competitive wave must be able to maintain an 8 minute 30-second mile and correctly complete each obstacle. Your time will start at exactly 8 a.m. and stop once you cross the finish line. Awards will be based on the amount of time in which it takes you to correctly complete the course. These awards will be given to the top three male and top three female finishers in the following age groups: 18-29, 30-39 and 40+.
