Chicago 2016

WE HAVE THE HIGHEST CUSTOMER RATING IN THE INDUSTRY. THERE ARE SIX REASONS:

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.

    As a long time OCR enthusiast I can say that the crew at Savage know how to put on a fabulous event. The attention to detail on the course is second to none & the customer service,if needed, is far above better than the competition. The Savage life is such a family feel & when you’re out there you always have support!!!! Looking forward to 2021!!!!!

    Love Savage Race it has the most challenging obstacles and best team. I've been volunteering and running for the past few years and it's one of my favorite OCRs with inventive obstacles that are always changing and keeping it new. The atmosphere is so welcoming and there are always fokes willing to give you a boost, unlike some other OCRs I've done. One of my favorites in the business if you haven't done one I would diffinatly reccomend Savage.

    I've been doing Savage for the past 5-6 years, and have felt the love from the Savage family. You all truly inspire us all to push harder. I'll run Savage as long as my body let's me! Thank you, and stay SAF!

  • Worlds Best OCR

    By James Z (2020-12-14, 20:46)

    Ohio

    I ran my first Savage Race in 2017 and I was instantly hooked. Since then I have done 22 Savages. The experience at every race is absolutely worth the price to register. Each venue provides a unique and challenging experience. Compared to other OCRs, the Savage obstacles are far and away the most creative, challenging, and fun. Savage Race goes above and beyond to make the race experience 5 stars from the time you register (customer service is amazing) to the time you cross the finish line (the swag is awesome). If you have not done a Savage before, you are missing out. The sense of accomplishment felt after finishing a Savage is one that you will never forget. For those reasons and many more, get Savage on your calendar in 2021!

  • FL for years

    Myself and much of my family have made the journey to Dade City FL for several years. There are many options for events but Savage is the GO TO. I’ve brought teams of young engineers from my work and we always have had a blast. The course is always fresh. The people are amazing. The obstacles (some are too hard for me as I get older but never lighter) are great. They are always trying to innovate new tests. We love Savage Race and support them even when races can’t run. Highly recommend!

  • My Favorite Race

    By Rich M (2020-12-14, 20:03)

    Maryland/ North Carolina

    Been an avid OCR runner since 2016 and my first race was Savage Race. Since then I haven’t missed a year racing with them racing at least twice a year. Their motto of the best obstacles and the perfect distance is spot on. The comradery with the runners and encouraged by the race themselves is incomparable. I couldn’t of completed my first race if it wasn’t for the help of others. The bling is amazing and are always different and unique. The system how to earn them is consistent and obtainable. The race, itself, is always different and challenging even at the same venues due to great course charting by their own in-house athletes. Lastly, their social media presence is always positive and uplifting, celebrating each other’s accomplishments, empathizing with ones that wipe out, and hearing stuff straight from the owners mouths. There’s no shame sharing a first time runners utter enjoyment to long time runners “Medal Monday’s”. If you’re looking for a great race, company, positive environment, and people look no further.

    I have done the North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida courses multiple times, and have loved every one of them! Definitely recommend doing a Savage Race whether it's for fun or if you wanna challenge yourself. It's worth every penny!
