I did the 6.5 mile Savage Race and the 3 mile Blitz in one weekend. What a thrill! I’ve participated in a lot of Savage Race events, but this weekend was my favorite yet! I love how Savage incorporates big trademark obstacles like Sawtooth and Colossus on the Blitz course this year! I’ll be back for more for sure!
Crushed my expectations

Hands down this is the BEST race you can do in OCR. I have raced most of the big names in OCR and you won’t find a better race. Savage has the best obstacles by far and the terrain in Pennsylvania was amazing. Did I mention fun? The whole race a had a huge smile on my face! I have never enjoyed a race so much. Savage Race has me hooked. I live in Canada but I plan on making a drive down to a Savage Race every year. Thanks Savage Race for putting on the best race experience ever!!!!

Charlotte Blitz 2018
This event was so much fun. I was worried that I was going to embarrass myself, but that’s so far from the truth. The encouragement from other runners made this event so great! Can’t wait for the next one.
I've completed 20 plus Savage's

I have done all the locations they are held and love them all. Each location brings its own little special twist. Some are more flat for the runners others more hills but most of all I love the intensity of the obstacles and how well the race is put on and coordinated.
I've done 6 Savage Races

I first tried the Savage Race because I saw an advertisement for it on Facebook. I didn't know anyone that had previously done one or anything like that. It just looked like fun and a challenge. My first SR experience was amazing and I thought I was hooked on OCRs. However, after trying other races I found out that I'm not hooked on OCRs, I'm hooked on Savage Race because SR is the best. Savage Race has found the perfect blend of fun/challenge and you definitely get your money's worth. I am of average athletic ability but my wife's athletic ability is much lower and yet we get the same fun/challenge out of the race. She loves it as much as I do. Since starting, I have recruited 8 other people to try the race (all different athletic abilities) and everyone has loved it as well. The obstacles are innovative and fun. There is no better feeling than failing at an obstacle one race and conquering it by the next. I've done 6 (all in Maryland) and I have zero intention of ever stopping. My wife and I are also interested in trying a SR in a different state.
First but not the last

First mud run ever and it was awesome, obstacles were broken up pretty perfectly on my opinion. The race terrain was tricky and offered technical challenges to any seasoned trail runner even when just running, dodging branches and planning foot placement on the trails was a great test of agility. The length was perfect for me and they really had a great location, I mean a paintball course is awesome alone to run around... We were running past old planes through these castle like buildings, streams, weeds, old metal containers. Props to skirmish paintball field. We got there early and parked right next to the course. The people were great the spectators were encouraging no matter who they came to cheer on. The "official" event directors were pleasant and eager to find out if people were having a good time. It was COLD and one of the directors came up to me after I was finished and asked how I liked it, if it was challenging enough, and then told me to be sure to get warm clothes on. Felt like he actually cared. Overall an amazing experience I'd recommend to anyone, I'll definitely do it again!

This race was very well run. Checkin took less than 30 seconds (compare that to over two hours at a Warrior Dash). The obstacles were on a large scale and creative. They struck a good balance between making the obstacles challenging but still fun. The MC at the starting line did a good job entertaining/getting us pumped while we waited for our wave to start. I'm definitely sticking with Savage Race for all my Mud Run needs!

So I'm biased, Savage was my first introduction to OCR and I've been hooked ever since. I have always loved the vibe on the course and in the festival area. I started out running the open waves and I was amazed that others were always cheering for racers or offering help and suggestions. Even in the Pro wave now, there's still a great sportsmanship (but we aren't allowed to help each other physically). The obstacles are always fun and challenging. Yes, some are grip heavy and some are really tall but, they're always fun and they're always changing so you're not constantly going over the same obstacles in the same pattern. The staff at Savage is also amazing. Any customer service question or glitch and they are on it (and quickly too!). Love this race and can't wait to run my first Blitz in March.
