The Battlegrounds, St. Louis’ largest permanent mud run obstacle course, is currently offering a four-week pre-race training program filled with drills and demonstrations to prepare athletes for its upcoming – and final – 11th bi-annual race on Sat., May 19.
Training dates are March 31, April 14, April 22, and May 12 at two locations: The Battlegrounds, located at 11008 Schreckengast Rd. in Wright City, Mo. and KōR Komplex’s Ninja Warrior training facility, an indoor obstacle course located at 546 First Capitol Dr. in St. Charles, Mo. The cost is $25 per training session or $75 for all four sessions. Brunch at Cedar Lake Cellars, which is adjacent to The Battlegrounds, is available for an additional $20 per person on April 22.
The program is an all-inclusive experience designed to give insight and information on how to conquer The Battlegrounds. Classes at The Battlegrounds’ course will show participants proper techniques for specific obstacles such as the rope climb, cargo net climb, and warped wall.
