Savage Race Florida Results, Photos, Video, & More

Savage Race kicked off our 2015 obstacle course race season with a fantastic event on March 28th and 29th at the Little Everglades Ranch in Dade City, Florida.

Bo Burton, Savage Race’s Event Operations Manager, and his team worked tirelessly on site at the race location in the weeks leading up to the event.

He says, “Having the opportunity to work and host Savage Race at Little Everglades Ranch is great. Watching the sun rise every morning as we start our day is amazing. Where else can you work alongside baby alligators, recently hatched sandhill cranes, and Moo, the farm dog who’s always looking for a free ride across the ranch?”

The Florida event location is certainly stunning, with a great combination of lush Florida landscape and… well… the world’s best obstacles!
