60,000 pounds of ice. Full submersion. Colder than you can even imagine.
If you’ve been around obstacle course racing (or other intense training activities) for awhile, you’ve probably heard about ice baths and their place in speeding up recovery.
43 feet tall. Muddy. Slippery. Intense. Very intense.
When you approach, your first thought is, “whoa, that’s big!” and your second is, “how in the world am I going to do this?”
A crowd gathers around to watch as you take a deep breath and try and slow your racing heart. You scout out the lane that you think will work best for you. Which one is the least muddy? Which rope looks the longest? Are the knots in the right place? How many people are waiting at the top to help me up and over?
You take one more breath and sprint towards the massive obstacle. One foot slips, but you regain traction. You run forward and up, then go airborne as you lunge for the rope. The person next to you misses their rope and slides back down to the bottom, resting a moment in the mud before trying again. You cling on for dear life and try to get your footing.
A group of wet, muddy, tired athletes triumphantly entered the festival area after completing Savage Race Maryland.
Every staff member began cheering. A couple of us may have had tears in our eyes.
It didn’t matter that this group of brave athletes finished after many others had already picked up and gone home. The smiles on their faces said it all – they did it!
Ben, CJ, Daron, Devonte, Nasim, Shawn, and Taiye completed miles of rugged terrain and dozens of challenging obstacles… that they couldn’t even see.
Participating in Savage Race is an epic experience, but coming to cheer on your friends and family can be just as much fun. The Savage Race HQ team put together this top 5 list of spectator spots that you absolutely don’t want to miss. Read on for more…
Savage Race kicked off our 2015 obstacle course race season with a fantastic event on March 28th and 29th at the Little Everglades Ranch in Dade City, Florida.
Bo Burton, Savage Race’s Event Operations Manager, and his team worked tirelessly on site at the race location in the weeks leading up to the event.
He says, “Having the opportunity to work and host Savage Race at Little Everglades Ranch is great. Watching the sun rise every morning as we start our day is amazing. Where else can you work alongside baby alligators, recently hatched sandhill cranes, and Moo, the farm dog who’s always looking for a free ride across the ranch?”
The Florida event location is certainly stunning, with a great combination of lush Florida landscape and… well… the world’s best obstacles!

Since the humble beginnings of Savage Race, Mac Stone was enlisted to capture the essence of what it means to experience one of the country’s top obstacle course races. His images have embodied the excitement, teamwork, and endurance at every event since the inception of Savage Race, but there’s a lot more to Mac than most participants know.
2014 presented some of the biggest races we’ve had yet. I took close to 30,000 pictures and it gets more and more difficult to distill down my favorites into a concise collection. But, this year, I decided to focus less on intense action and more on unique moments to give a glimpse of what it feels like to run one of these races. I tried to capture the scale of these events and then down to the elemental and personal moments: the fear, the failure, the accomplishment, the teamwork, and the eventual celebration.
