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.

Savage Race Participant Reviews

  • Love Savage races!!

    By Angie ( 2019-01-25 , 18:04 )

    Event location:

    Texas 2018

    I am still new to OCRs, only having done two Savage races so far, but I am so glad I started with Savage!! I ran both TX races last year and experienced the Savage weather curse both times, but absolutely LOVED it! The crew is amazing to be able to modify under pressure with the unexpected on the fly and pull it off without any noticeable hitches. Ready for Savage TX in April!!

  • Awesome Experience

    By Josh Payne ( 2019-01-25 , 18:03 )

    Event location:

    Florida Savage Race Fall

    This was my first mud run. It was a challenging course. I thought the distance between obstacles were balanced well. You didn't have too much running in between obstacles. I liked that they had both fun and difficult obstacles to complete. Great swag medals and t-shirts. Overall great experience! Registering again for Florida Spring.

  • Florida Fall

    By Team Blacksheep ( 2019-01-25 , 18:02 )

    Event location:

    Savage Race Florida

    This was my first Savage Race and it was a great time. Parking was ok, a longer walk to the race area, but thats ok, (it is an athletic event) The venue was good and the course was well marked. Didnt have much interaction with the staff, but when I did, they were good. The obstacles were a little less difficult than I had imagined. I would give it an overall rating of 4! They gave out free bumper stickers too, thats a big plus to help promote!

  • Must Do for OCR lovers

    By KOASEV ( 2019-01-25 , 17:58 )

    Event location:

    Pennsylvania Savage Race

    The Savage Race is a must for OCR lovers for a number of reasons: It's a well put together event with plenty of mud, water and kick-ass obstacles. I agree with Dave in NJ's review of the event setting and set-up. My only complaint was that the "shower" area and changing stations were not closer to the event site. Definitely will hit it up again!

  • SAVAGE AF!!!

    By John Cross ( 2019-01-25 , 17:57 )

    Event location:

    Ohio, Pennsylvania, Chicago, Boston, Florida

    Have done many OCR events. Tried Savage in 2017 for a new experience. Was not disappointed. 6 podiums in 6 races. Sam and Lloyd ask the opinions of participants.....and they listen. TOP NOTCH!!!

  • Highly recommend

    By Rich ( 2019-01-25 , 17:52 )

    Event location:


    This was my first mud run and I am hooked. As a 54 year old, I was a bit concerned about injury but the course is really not dangerous if you use some common sense. I'm not going to break any speed records, so I took my time on the obstacles. The only one that was too difficult physically was Sawtooth (monkey bar), but I'm doing some weight and grip training that should solve that next time - and there will definitely be a next time! A couple of tips - get OCR shoes, or you will be slipping a LOT. Also, the mud/water can contain some disgusting bacteria so I wore swim goggles and ear plugs. Rinse your mouth and spit at the water stations before you swallow. There are plenty of small pebbles in the muddy areas, which are no fun if they get in your shoes. Gaters help with that. This stuff is not unique to Savage Race,

  • Great race

    By Jaret Alvis ( 2019-01-25 , 17:47 )

    Event location:

    Chicago Illinois Savage Race

    This was my first Savage race and was not disappointed. The atmosphere was great and the race was even better. All th volunteers were encouraging, all the obstacles were well made, and even ran into the owner of the company on the course. The course was well designed but our favorite was the obstacles. Well made, challenging, but still a blast to do. If it is your first OCR or your 100th this is a do not miss race.

  • best race series!

    By Christian Restrepo ( 2019-01-25 , 17:45 )

    Event location:

    Florida Fall Savage Race

    Far and away the best race series! The best blend of distance and difficulty for everyone, from couch ninjas to elite runners, this race is a perfect blend of what OCR is about.
