Savage Race offers free race photos for all runners. Read these tips to make sure you get amazing action photos at any Savage Race!
How to make sure you get good photos at Savage Race
1. Make sure you know where all photographers will be on the course! The official photographers will all wear bright yellow vests. You will receive an email before the event that details all of the photographer locations.
2. Always wear your race bib facing forwards, and make sure it is clean and visible.
3. Seek out the photographers and make sure they take your photo!
4. Write your bib number on your body using a body marking pen. (optional)
We take tens of thousands of participant photos at each event, so it takes several days for our staff to review and tag them all. Some of your photos might be immediately available after the event, but it is unlikely that all of your photos will be ready until Thursday.
There are two ways to download and share your photos. Option 1 is faster, and requires that you give an app share access to your Facebook account. Option 2 does not involve Facebook at all, but the photos will not be available as soon.
Option 1 – Pic2Go
Option 2 – High Resolution Downloads
How does photo tagging work?
We are able to tag pictures of you using a three part process: automatic bar code tagging, manual bib number tagging, and RFID tagging. These three methods are explained below.
