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.

This was the best experience I’ve ever had at an ocr! So much so I ran it again the same day! Savage has renewed my love for this sport! They by far have the best obstacles around and it was an awesome course to run Would highly recommend to anyone
Great staff, well organized, tough obstacles, perfect distance.

Great staff, well organized, tough obstacles, perfect distance. Only a few of the great things about Savage Race. They take great care of their volunteers and the race itself is always a great competitive environment. One of if not the best OCR race series around.
If you're not running savage - do you even OCR?

I LOVE the Chicago venue! It is fast and flat! I love all the venues (except I refuse to run Ohio) If you’re not running savage- do you even OCR?! One of the BEST in the business!
The standard by which to compare all OCR!

Savage puts on an outstanding race series! The standard by which to compare all OCR! They blend challenge and fun so that all racers...first timers to elites...can enjoy it! The tagline of the perfect distance and best obstacles is spot on! Onl complaint is that there arent more offered. Keep up the great work Savage Team!!
Savage is such a GREAT race in every way!

I cannot say another good things about them. The race is tough but if you cant get through an obstacle there is always someone to lend a helping hand and a positive word. Such a welcoming group. The organization is the best in the business. Always so happy when a Savage race is coming up!!
Great race as always!

This was my first time running this location. Great race as always and the level of kindness from everyone from the owners, volunteers and even other runner's is awesome. That is the main reason I have run 15 races so far and will continue to do so.
Chicago Illinois Savage Race 2018

Savage Race could be the best run OCR organization. Great value, fantastic and innovative courses and challenges. Chicago was my 3rd full Savage and second Blitz of 2018. I can't wait for the next so I can add to my Syndicate collection.
Once you go Savage, you never go back to another OCR
By Allen Cole (02-08-2018 03:15 pm)
I enjoy Savage Races because it is the perfect distance and challenges for me to achieve my goals. Savage is setting the bar with their customer service, other organizations are still in the mud. All volunteers are smiling & willing to help out. Only OCR that I have drove 10.5 hours one way to race & drove home on the same day after running 7.5 miles. Once you go Savage, you never go back to another ocr.
