When Savage Race was born in 2011, we set six rules to define who we are and to set us apart from everyone else. To this day, we design our events with these rules as our guideposts.

  1. Savage Race is incredibly fun.
  2. We always have the best obstacles.
  3. It's about teamwork and friendship.
  4. Our community matters to us more than anything.
  5. We challenge beginners. We challenge experts.
  6. No one expects you to beat all the obstacles. It's normal to fail.

  • Best of 300 races I've done.

    Look, I've done Triathlon, Road running, XC, Xterra, Ironman, Spartan, Warrior Dash, adventure racing, MTB, SUP, kayak, rock climbing, Ninja Warrior and have been on TV. I've competed and Won on the world championship level. I can count on my hands who is more experienced than I am in this sport. Savage is the best race hands down. I'll tell you why. Sam and Llyod are family men and care about the atmosphere. It's always family friendly but has a great angle for those who don't want a family experience. The obstacles are solid and Hard. The finish line actually has people cheering and an actual finish line that makes you feel accomplished. They have prize money so real athletes come and win. They video the entire race and typically have 10,000 photos posted from each event from them and racers. They offered deferrals from race cancels. THEY ARE NOT REQUIRED TO DO THIS BUT DID ANYWAY. They lead the other series in this respect. They respect and honor other races unlike other companies. Everyone loves this race unless they are being paid to wear a shirt of another company. Savage will be part of your identity and it is awesome.

    I've done this race twice, and it is AWESOME. They go from good to better and they are the BEST. My first race, I was not at all physically inclined (overweight for sure, with no muscle whatsoever) but I loved it, and everyone was so willing to help me get over obstacles with my two brothers. In fact, it motivated me to lose over 40 pounds before my second race, and I am just awed by the community, let alone the obstacles, that this race has. You should definitely go SAVAGE in Maryland!!

    I just started running OCR this year and this was my first Savage race. I ran the Blitz on Sunday with my daughter and her boyfriend and it was an awesome experience. I completed all but 4 of the obstacles which I'm happy about and know where I need to keep training. Perfect weather, perfect distance and great experience. Next year I plan on running the full race and blitz course the same weekend. #GETSAVAGE

    I’ve been running Savages since the fall of 2013. Every year it gets more and more fun to do. The obstacles are one of the main reasons I continue to return year after year. There’s always something new. New things are added, while keeping some of the fan favorites that will never get old. I started to volunteer at the Savage Race earlier this year. I’ve been able to meet a lot, if not most of the people behind what’s put together for us. I’ve run other races throughout the years, and Savage Race is the one that I make sure I don’t miss. It’s a great environment, where you’re not required to complete anything. Challenging yourself is totally up to you. It’s a fun environment, with great people. Whether alone, or with a group, you’re going to have a good time, with an experience to remember and share with others!

  • Awesome volunteers

    This past weekend we ran the Savage Race in Florida. We have run this race many times but never on a Sunday before. My friend and I brought our two sons. We also brought my dad so he could watch our sons while he and I were on course. Our sons were registered for the Savage Jr. at 11:00. However we were used to there being multiple kids races as there typically are on Saturday. We were not aware that they limited it to only one race on Sunday. Our sons decided to wait for us to finish our race so we could be back to cheer them on. Once he and I finished at 11:40 we realized there was only the one kid’s race and our boys missed their chance. I spoke with a volunteer and he pointed me to registration. I went up and spoke with a nice young lady who went and found Lee, the Savage Jr. Race director. We really just wanted the boys to run the course (we would follow along with them). Lee said they were not tearing down the Jr. Course until 1:00 and they could go ahead and run it. They even organized a staffer to meet the boys at the finish line cheering them on and giving them their medal and shirt. It saved the day. I will say this, I expected them to say no but the staff and volunteers really stepped up to make the day special for them. Thank you very much.
