(updated 6/18/24)


Here are some important updates for the Savage Race PRO heat that affect you, if you are signed up for SavagePRO.

  • New for 2024: Runners have two hours to complete the course to be eligible for awards. If males start at 8 am, they must complete the race by 10 am. If the female race starts at 8:15 am, they must complete the race by 10:15 am.
  • Obstacle completion is required for all podium spots including age group awards. Podium spots will NOT be filled by athletes who do not complete 100% of the obstacles.
  • There will be two pro start times starting at 8am for males and 8:15am for females.
  • All pro runners must start in their respective start time to be eligible for any award.
  • Besides top overall finishers, your finish time and placement will be determined by chip time. We will do our best to group age groups together, but in some cases this might be not possible. It’s possible that someone who starts after you and finishes after you could have a better race time, and beat you.
  • Once the race results have been finalized, the overall and age group awards ceremony will be held on the main stage. You must pick up your award at the event; they will not be mailed post-race.
  • The cutoff time for award eligibility will be 2 hours after respective starting times.
  • All other standard pro rules in the “General Rules” section below apply to this event.
  • Both the course and obstacles are NOT available for preview or practice prior to the race.
  • In order to qualify for podium spots and awards, SavagePRO runners must complete 100% of the obstacles, finish the race with their velcro SavagePRO band, and complete the race by the cut-off time of 2 hours after respective starting times. This includes overall, age group, and team awards.
  • For teams, only those members who complete 100% of the obstacles will have their race times count toward team awards. The fastest three members who complete 100% of the obstacles will have their times count toward award-status.


Overall – Athletes must complete all obstacles as specified in the SavagePRO Rules in order to be eligible for awards and cash prizes, which are awarded to the Top 3 Male and Top 3 Female athletes competing in the SavagePRO heat. Cash prizes are only available at Point Series events.
