SavageRace Race Day Information – Florida Spring 2024

Savage Race & Savage Blitz Florida Spring 2024

Our team has been keeping a very close eye on the weather forecast for Saturday and we’re aware of the potential for scattered inclement weather starting at about 2 PM. We do not expect this to have a big impact on the event overall. However, to mitigate any potential course disruptions for runners, we have implemented the following changes to the event schedule:

-If you have a start time at or later than 11:05 AM, you are highly encouraged to start 1 hour earlier than your assigned start time. For example, if you were assigned a wave time of 11:05 AM, you are encouraged to run at 10:05 AM.

-SavagePRO runners (9 AM and 9:15 AM) and those who are running in one of the premium start time waves (9:20 AM – 9:55 AM) will NOT be affected by this. We also do not expect those who are running twice to be affected.

-SavageJR, kids’ race: The SavageJR race is still scheduled to take place at 12 PM. To mitigate any potential course disruptions, we are also offering an 11:30 AM option for those who arrive early. Both 12 PM and 11:30 AM will be an option for the SavageJR race.

-The Savage Race Weather Center and our Facebook Page is your best resource for up-to-the-minute weather related event updates.


Saturday, 3/2 – First start time is 9:00 AM. Last start time is 12:00 PM (we encourage everyone to start prior to 11:00AM due to the impending weather).

This is a CASHLESS event. Please be sure to have a credit/debit card or contactless payment method ready for purchases you may wish to make.

Savager Hunt

What is it? – During each event day, 3 small wooden axes will be hidden somewhere on the Savage Race course. Event participants are encouraged to keep an eye out and try to locate the hidden rewards.

What do I get? – Anyone who discovers an Axe can bring it to the Main Stage in the festival area to receive their reward. Rewards can only be redeemed onsite. They also get to keep the Axe!

Axe Rewards:

  • Red Axe: You’ve won a race entry!
  • White Axe: $50 Savage Merch Voucher
  • Blue Axe: $25 Savage Merch Voucher

What do the Axes look like? – At 6” tall, the Hunt Axes are a miniature of our awards for the first place overall finisher. Each Axe is painted either red, white, or blue, and coded with a unique serial number.

What are the rules? –

  • Savager Hunt is for Race/ Blitz participants only! Spectators are ineligible.
  • All 3 Axes will be hidden before the event, somewhere along the RACE course.
  • When you find an Axe, it must stay with you through the remainder of the course.
  • Axes are not required to complete obstacles with you. (don’t leave it behind!)
  • Axes must be brought to the stage upon completion of the course. (for reporting)
  • Axes will not be placed outside course tape boundaries.
  • Axes will not be within 100’ of the Start or Finish areas.

How do I know what Axes are still hidden? – As each Axe is found and reported to the stage, our emcee at the stage will keep track of how many are left, and report updates regularly.

What if no Axes get found? – If Axes still remain for too long, the stage emcee will begin giving hints on stage until each one is found. Our goal is for each Axe to go home with a lucky winner each event.
