A group of wet, muddy, tired athletes triumphantly entered the festival area after completing Savage Race Maryland.
Every staff member began cheering. A couple of us may have had tears in our eyes.
It didn’t matter that this group of brave athletes finished after many others had already picked up and gone home. The smiles on their faces said it all – they did it!
Ben, CJ, Daron, Devonte, Nasim, Shawn, and Taiye completed miles of rugged terrain and dozens of challenging obstacles… that they couldn’t even see.
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!
