***3:30 pm, February 29, 2024 – Savage Race Florida Spring Weather Update

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.

 

General Questions – Foul Weather FAQ

Will you suspend or cancel Savage Race due to rain, lightning, or thunder?
We will not suspend or delay Savage Race for rain only. If it’s raining, we are running. If it’s lightning or thunder, we are waiting until the storm clears the area for 30 minutes before opening/reopening.

What should I do if I’m on the course and lightning or thunder strikes?
Please head immediately to the safety of your car, and check this page for updates. We will make every effort to re-open the course back up after the lightning clears.

If the race is stopped, will I be able to run after the weather clears?
We will make every effort to allow you to run after the weather clears. In the event of a foul weather postponement, status updates will be posted to this page.

What if I can’t wait around for the weather to clear?
If the weather forces us into a prolonged holding pattern, and you cannot wait onsite until the weather clears, we will offer free transfers to any future event. All you will have to do is write in to us during the week after your planned event. We do not offer refunds due to weather related cancellations or postponements.
