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.

    GUYS, YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS RACE! I'm a competitive person by nature, but I went for my first time with my sister (16) and her friend (14). Neither of them trained for it, but we all agreed it was awesome. I, as a 14 year old, was worried about a lot of things to begin with: Firstly, they didn't actually SAY the Blitz was for 13 and up, so I wasn't really sure about it. By the time I payed, the cost was $70, but it WAS SO WORTH IT! Other racers helped me out a bit, all us guys shared jokes, and it was just a really good time. I strongly recommend it for the beginners. Staff was amazing, and the host was really good at getting you riled up before you left. Guys, if you are reading this, don't start out with an actual race. Start with the Blitz, plain and simple, preferably with some friends, and don't push beyond what you think you can endure. I really loved it! Thank you, Sam Abbit!

  • The Texas Tsunami had a great time!

    This was my 4th race (all in Dallas) and this year I ran it with my two teenage sons, 15 and 17. I'm 50+ and my eldest is a competitive gymnast. We had a blast and were impressed with the usual level of enthusiasm and helpfulness of the staff. My eldest will be in college next year but my younger one and I might do Blitz next year. Thanks for a great course and a great time!

  • Great Savage Maryland Fall Experience

    By Roy Reynolds (2019-09-09, 22:15)

    Event location:

    Maryland Fall, Kennedyville

    Great job changing up the course from last year. For a relatively flat region, you guys managed to use every foot of elevation at the site, along with every mudpit you could find. It definitely made for a slower pace through some areas, but provided extra challenge. I ran the pro first and then the open and by about 11:30 those mud pits were epic. Parking, registration, food, beer, volunteers, etc, were all excellent. The comaraderie after the race is awesome and I find it interesting how everybody has a different take on the course and obstacles. It was the first time I saw Inversion Therapy and it surprised me as it was harder than it looked, but that may be because it was right near the end. I really liked the obstacle loading at the end when you had 8 or so in the last half mile. Great job on the final rig obstacle as that one stumped a lot of racers. I also really like the 100% completion rule for the Pro race. I am not a speedster by any means and many other race series give such an advantage to the seasoned runners who know they may fail a few obstacles, but gladly do penalty laps or exercises. Grinders like me really appreciate the 100% rule to offset at least some of the speedster advantage. (Yes, I know I should also train to run faster.) Already looking forward to my next Savage Race!

    This will be my third year in a row attending savage race in Dade City. It is by far my favorite race of the year. It’s a great distance (7miles), the obstacles are great, it is the safest event I attend yearly, and always recommend it to others. I can’t wait to run this year!
