Limits Redefined

Run an Obstacle Course Race While War Rages Around You!

Almost every obstacle course race and mud run across the country has had military and veterans recreate different obstacles and challenges. Everyone is looking for that next-level race to push and test their limits. War-X has taken that model and elevated it to truly epic proportions. Welcome to War-Xperience racing!
 War-X races put you in the middle of a war zone! While battles rage all around you, you’ll tackle huge obstacles, crazy challenges, fields of smoke, fire, propaganda, air raid sirens, and explosions. These are just some of the things you may encounter during a War-X race. You may find certain obstacles that mimic actual historic battles and events. The course sets on 700 acres of rugged, privately owned terrain, allowing us the ability to create an extraordinary, adrenaline-filled war experience unlike any other race out there. Experience this one-of-a-kind obstacle course with filled with adrenaline, explosions and two 350ft water slides!

War-X: Veteran Owned and Operated

The War-X Battleground is based in Jackson, Ohio and is veteran owned and operated. All events are designed by military veterans who know first-hand what it takes to push through adversity. Operating on over 700 acres of private land, War-X is able to create an atmosphere of live combat over miles of intense southern Ohio terrain. Our mission is to provide exciting and unique experiences that help test, push and re-define a person’s physical and mental limits, regardless of their level of athleticism and experience.


Everyone at War-X believes in supporting veterans, law enforcement, and all those who have personally sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. We have partnered with Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW), and directly support their efforts with disabled and adaptive veterans. Operation Enduring Warrior is a 501(c)(3) non-profit 100% volunteer-run organization whose mission is to honor, empower and motivate America’s wounded military service members, enabling the lives of our Wounded Warriors to go in directions they once thought impossible. The War-X Battleground in southern Ohio is the official training site for Operation Enduring Warrior and their masked athlete team. We host several events each year to help raise donations, public awareness and support for OEW. 100% of all revenue generated from our events directly benefit their initiatives.

Epic, Next Level Experiences

The objective of any War-X event is to give each participant an epic and unique War-Xperience. Both unique obstacle course races and customized survival events are just a few things that help make War-X a preferred destination for adventure seekers everywhere. Run an obstacle course race while explosions and gunfire rage around you, or trying to rescue a hostile while an opposing force is literally trying to hunt and capture you. Do you have what it takes to be focus on the obstacle or mission at hand. There’s only one way to find out.

“An awesome race, venue, and experience! I went in not knowing what to expect, but 6+ miles of hills, obstacles, enemy patrols, gunfire and explosions, I realized War-X was quite possibly my new favorite OCR/event. I will definitely be back for future events!”
