Top 3 Race for Seasoned OCRs

Although I enjoyed last year's Savage Race, I didn't sign up to the last minute this year. Boy I'm glad I did! Savage Race gets it. From the start with their hype man, use of terrain and their new obstacles, it all made for an even better race this year. My only "complaints" are they need to mark the trails better. A lot of the obstacles didn't have anyone from Savage Race stationed and the bottlenecking at Colossus needs to be improved. Will definitely not wait till the last minute to register.
Savage is awesome!!

What isn't to like about Savage Race? The registration is easy, it's cheaper than some of the other big OCRs out there, it's well organized, and the obstacles are fun and challenging. The hills for this event definitely add an element of suck to the race, but I would definitely do Savage again!
My first OCR race. It was amazing.

My first OCR race. It was amazing. The entire event was well organized and well executed. Packet pick up was easy. Volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable. The only negative, and it wasn't even that bad, was that they advertise "we have showers", well I dont consider a hose laying on the ground a shower. It certainly helped with rinsing off the mud, but its not a shower.I will be back in September.
An OCR must!

Savage Race keeps on improving with their Best in Class obstacles. The event is well run, has a great finisher shirt/medal not to mention COACH PAIN at the start this year! I do agree with another reviewer that they have mark the trails better. The kids race(Savage JR) needs more obstacles, mud and monkey bars. See you next year!
A Must Run Event

I will never miss this event. Savage puts on hands down the best OCR in the country!
Must do every year.

I love to Run the Ohio Savage necause it has basically the highest and only hill in Ohio. It pushes this old guy to climb up it several times per event. Awesome festival area too.
World’s Best OCR

Chicago 2018 was my 10th Savage in 1 year. The obstacles, the customer service, the after party, the venues, the race distances, the awards, and the people make this race second to none! Your missing out if you don’t give it a try.

Raced both races. Saturday is always fun with challenging obstacles. Never imagined I would jump into 15ft of water!! So much fun. Will Run Savage Race yearly.
