Savage Syndicate is designed to reward our most loyal and die hard participants. We love that you are willing to travel across the country to try out our latest obstacles, climb Colossus, leap off of Davy Jones' Locker, freeze your bits in Shriveled Richard, and go for a spin on Wheel World. We've been searching for a way to say "thank you," and that is how we came up with Savage Syndicate.
Savage Syndicate is a loyalty program designed to reward participants who run in two or more events within a single calendar year (this means between January 1 and December 31 of the same year). After you qualify, you can pick up your own Syndicate medal and state pins onsite at your qualifying race. Then you can peacock around the festival area showing off the goods. You earned it! The Syndicate medals are HUGE, and the state pins are pretty sick too. Trust us, people will notice.
I'm glad you asked! For each state that you complete along your Syndicate journey, we will hook you up with a custom Syndicate ribbon pin for that state, after you qualify. So for example, if you ran Florida in March, and then Ohio in June, you qualify for the Syndicate medal and the Florida and Ohio pins!
Some states, like Florida, Georgia, Maryland, and Texas, have more than one Savage Race every year. So even if you run Florida twice, and never leave the state, you still qualify for the Syndicate medal and a Florida pin.
Totally. You can request access to join the official Savage Syndicate Facebook group by clicking here. The group is monitored and moderated by Savage Race HQ staff, so if you have more questions, you can come straight to the source! All Savages are welcome.
After you finish your qualifying event, visit our Syndicate redemption tent, which is normally located near the merchandise tent. We will have staff onsite who can look up your eligibility and give you your Syndicate medal and pins on race day.
Well, it's enormous. It has a circumference of 15.7" and diameter of 5". Oh, and the entire center spins like a top!
You can receive a new Syndicate medal after every qualifying race (2nd, 3rd, 4th, and so on) in the same calendar year.
Nope. You will still get a finisher medal for every race you complete. Syndicate qualification entitles you to the Syndicate medal complete with pins from each event you ran within that year, in addition to the event finisher medal.
Sorry, but no. To qualify you must run two or more events within a single calendar year (i.e. within January 1st - December 31st, 2016, 2017, etc).
Multi-lap runners are eligible for earning Syndicate on the spot if they register and pay for two spots at the race.
Eligible - multi-lap runners who purchased a second race registration
Not eligible - multi-lap runners who only purchased one registration
