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.
Savage Race obstacles are regularly voted best in the industry by participants like you.
Savage finisher shirts are crafted from a lightweight, ultra soft, cotton/poly blend.
Unique medals for Savage Race, Savage Blitz, Savage Syndicate, and SavagePRO award winners
We leverage the most accurate timing equipment available to keep track of your race time.
Our photographers are on course for great photo ops! Find your photos after the event using our facial recognition search tools.
Beer is the official recovery beverage of Savage Race. If you finish, your first one is on the house.
Best race I’ve ever run and volunteered for!

Savage is like a family, a community who keeps pushing each other on and off the course to get better. Great courses with lots of water stations and the swag is even more awesome! In the midst of a daunting 20/20 SAVAGE hit a grand slam! Just my opinion but go see for yourself

Absolutely LOVED the race! This was my second Savage Race and it was amazing. The variety and creativity of the obstacles challenged me to step out of my “obstacle comfort zone” and try new things. Savage knows how put on an event, safe and fun!! I can’t wait until my next one! Thank you Sam Abbitt and everyone that make it happen!!

I’ve done a few OCRs ranging from Spartan to TM to bonefrog. Savage is by far the most fun. The obstacles are incomparable and awesome. It takes skill and agility to complete them so they’re not too easy but they’re fun at the same time. I never miss a race that is within driving distance. If you haven’t done one, they are so worth it.

It was a tough year for everyone. All my runs had been canceled, but Savage pulled it off. Put together an awesome plan for safety and got back to the Savage fun. Staff also was so friendly and helpful for the entire process and always quick to respond.
Charlotte - Great Event Staff

I had a medical emergency on the course, and I was extremely impressed with the care provided by on-site medics and the follow-up from Savage Race customer service after the race. I wasn't able to finish the race, but I'm looking forward to participating in the next Charlotte Savage Race!
Charlotte, NC - despite it still being 2020 was an amazing OCR

Our first Savage Race... The best obstacles of any I've ever done. Excellent safety and social distancing precautions, friendly and helpful staff. Overall a great experience and we've already signed up for next year!
Medical emergency was handled well

As I was watching one of the obstacles I had a call that one of my daughters had a medical emergency. The staff quickly got her to the med tent and took great care of her until the ambulance came. The Savage Race team handled the situation well and reassured the rest of us that she was being treated by skilled professionals. I was very impressed with her care and with the follow up after the race. We will definitely come back in June for the next Charlotte race since my daughters were very disappointed to not be able to finish this (their first) race. They were enjoying the course and the obstacles.

Ran my first Savage in 2015 To this day it is still my favorite race. From the second you pull into the parking lot, to the minute you leave it I’d organized and smooth. Savage puts on a first class event! Even with the restrictions of COVID this year, they were on the forefront of safety. Their obstacles are some of the best in the industry. Can’t wait until 2021! 6 races on the calendar. 100% or bust!
