Welcome Scramblers!

The St. Clair Scramble is a 5K obstacle race and mud run built on some of the most unforgiving property in St. Clair County, Alabama. Riddled with the most diabolical obstacles we could think up, the Scramble is sure to test even the most elite of athletes, but don't let the threat of failure scare you! EVERY competitor that crosses the start gate will finish. Athletes will have the option to scale obstacles for their fitness level. You are sure to get your fill of rocks, hills and body wrenching obstacles.


This is a non-profit event with all proceeds benefitting the Ian Harper Memorial Scholarship Fund. Ian was a close personal friend and graduate of St. Clair County High School. He was a State Champion wrestler and a lover of life and the outdoors. He was tragically taken from us May 2007, but his legacy will live on forever. His parents, Johnnie and Rhonda Harper, established the Ian Harper Memorial Scholarship Fund in 2009 and have since given numerous scholarships to hardworking student athletes in the St. Clair County.





SAME DAY REGISTRATION will begin at 8am on race day. Look for the same day registration booth on the event grounds. Cost is $55 per person. Heats from 9am until 11am are currently full. If you have a larger group, please plan to be in an afternoon heat. The last heat is 1pm.

This is a COMPETITION heat designed for the toughest of the tough. This will be a head to head match-up to see which team of 10 will take home the title of Toughest Gym or Team!


1. Team must consist of 10 members.

2. All members must start and end TOGETHER! You only get ONE timing chip per TEAM, so you are only as good as your weakest link.

3. You CANNOT scale any of the obstacles.

This heat will start at 8am. It will be the first heat so the course will be in pristine condition. The winning gym or team gets to take home the pride of being top dog and a custom SCS Toughest Gym or Team Flag to hang at your facility. When registering for this heat, please include the tshirt sizes for all team members. You may have more than one team from a facility or gym- just make sure each has 10 members.
