What makes Savage Race so great is YOU and your support of one another before, during, and after the race.

Savage Race is about community.

It was a hot summer day in the Parramore neighborhood of Orlando when a group of about 30 school-age kids gathered in a grassy field outside of the John H. Jackson Community Center.
