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!
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? –
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.
