What we're about

Looking for people in the Springfield area interested in running in the mud and taking on obstacles. You don't have to be a great athlete to have fun with us, just interested in getting in better shape, teamwork, and having fun with people that still like to play in the mud!

Most obstacle course races are not in the Springfield area, so I'll be posting events around the region. St. Louis, Chicago, Litchfield and Indiana. We can coordinate rides, housing, training, maybe some social events to get to know each other.

Spartan - Chicago Beast and Sprint Weekend

Badlands Off Road Park

Yes, I know, it's not "Chicago". It's 2.5 hours from Chicago in Attica, IN (2 hours/15 minutes from Springfield). I don't ask why... Anyway, on to the description! The Badlands Off Road Park is 800 acres of beautiful, badass trails. This venue usually functions as an off-road vehicle park but will transform into a Spartan obstacle course. Spartans will traverse sand dunes, rocky paths, heavily wooded trails, and creeks to prove that you don’t need an ATV or dirt bike to go off-roading. There will be plenty of miles for the Beast and Sprint course here. Just 2 hours and 30 minutes from Chicago and 1 hour 30 minutes from Indianapolis, the Badlands Off Road Park is situated in the small town of Attica. City dwellers escape to this off-roading venue to get some quality time with the great outdoors and you can bet you’ll connect with mother nature when you’re doing 30 burpees in the mud. Are you bad enough to tackle this new course? We’ll see you at Badlands, Spartans! FINISHERS RECEIVE Finisher Medal (personalize it with a SpartanTab) A trifecta medal wedge piece (run a Stadion, Sprint or Super to collect your remaining two pieces!) Free beer Craft Beast Finisher T-shirt (your other one should be pretty dirty) Free Professional Photos (to frame and flaunt) Bananas at the finish line Cold can of FitAID, BODYARMOR Sports Drink or Hydration Water, Kashi Protein Bar Bragging rights NEW FOR 2019!
