FAQ

WHY DID YOU CREATE SAVAGE BLITZ?

We created Blitz for people who are interested in a shorter distance obstacle course race. A shorter distance version of Savage Race has been a frequent request from beginners and experienced athletes alike.

WHY ARE THERE ONLY SEVEN DATES FOR BLITZ IN 2018?

We want to see how things go, and how this new race format is received before we roll it out to all locations. There’s a good chance we roll out Blitz nationwide in the near future.

WILL SAVAGE BLITZ COUNT TOWARDS SAVAGE SYNDICATE?

Yes. But you must run at least one full distance Savage Race in the same calendar year to qualify for Syndicate.

IF I RUN THE FULL DISTANCE SAVAGE RACE ON SATURDAY AND BLITZ ON SUNDAY, HAVE I EARNED SYNDICATE?

Yes. By running both events in one weekend, you can earn the Savage Syndicate medal and state pins.

 

WILL SAVAGE BLITZ FEATURE ALL OF THE SAVAGE RACE OBSTACLES?

Savage Blitz will feature 15-20 of Savage Race’s premium obstacles (that is at least 5 obstacles per mile on average!) However, certain Savage Race obstacles like Colossus or Davy Jones’ Locker will not be included in Savage Blitz. Savage Blitz will not feature obstacles with water depth over 6 feet.

WILL BLITZ HAVE ITS OWN CUSTOM FINISHER SHIRTS AND FINISHER MEDALS?

Yes on both accounts.
