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.

SavagePRO is for advanced athletes looking to take their Savage Race experience to the next level. SavagePRO participants compete for age group awards, special medals, cash prizes, and all the glory. SavagePRO is always the first race heat of the day, starting with a fresh course, at 8:00 am. SavagePRO is for the top 5% of runners, not for casual competitors, or beginners. Learn more


Savage Syndicate is a loyalty program designed to reward participants who run in two or more events on the same day or within a single calendar year (this means between January 1 and December 31 of the same year). After you qualify, you can pick up your own Syndicate medal and pins (one for each race) onsite at your qualifying race. Learn more

Want to earn your Syndicate status on the same day? Just signup for the ‘Syndicate Pass’ option when you go to register. This will sign you up for both a Race and a Blitz on the same day and it includes the early start time upgrade!


Savage Race is about teamwork, friendship, and community. It’s also about smiling and having a lot of fun. Make the most out of your Savage experience by completing it with your friends and family. We promise that it is the best that way. Speaking of community, why don’t you join our Savage Syndicate group on Facebook to connect with other runners?


Watch your friends or family complete Savage Race with a spectator pass. Spectators have full access to the race course. We provide spectator course maps and recommended spectator viewing routes to help you find your way. Spectator passes are $22 online until the Friday before the event, or $30 onsite (includes all applicable taxes) on race day. All SavageJR entries come with one complimentary spectator pass. Purchase spectator passes here.


There are two ways to Ruck Savage Race.

Savage Race Rucking Division
9:30am Saturday

Rucking Division is not a Cadre-led event. In Rucking Division, you simply show up, have fun, and ruck the course with your friends and others from the GORUCK community. Rucking Division finishers earn a special patch in addition to their T-shirt and medal. Rucking Division event completions do count toward Savage Syndicate qualification.
Register Now for Rucking Division

Wait! I don’t know what rucking is. Tell me more about rucking at Savage Race.

    Great obstacles, great distances, and brings all sorts of people together. Their customer service is beyond most that you'll encounter with other companies. Always putting their customers first, they gave it their all to produce the best 2020 season that we can get. Like most, I am super thankful that we had a couple of races this year. The Savage Anywhere workouts are great, and as a trainer I think they're awesome for people to do.

    We do a lot of different races every year, but Savage is our favorite by far. The obstacles are the best and the people are great! Venue locations are also the best. Itโ€™s an enjoyable race for all skill levels.

    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 youโ€™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)

    Event location:


    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!
