Savage Race is the most badass mud and obstacle race event yet. Our unique courses feature big, rugged obstacles spread out over 4 - 6 treacherous miles. This is one tough race, and we guarantee that it will completely kick your ass. We warn you that this race is not for everyone, and it's definitely not your average family fun run or 'mud race'. If you're afraid of extreme obstacles, fire, mud, and bruises, DO NOT sign up for Savage Race. But if you're tough, you need to prove it. Are you a Savage? Prove it at Savage Race.
We lovingly call our participants Savages because we believe you have to find your inner barbarian to power through our intense 4-6 mile races. Some of our most intense obstacles have include the Shriveled Richard ice bath, the incredibly steep Sawtooth Bars, a leap over rows of fire and of course crawling through thick mud under barbed wire. Savage Race prides itself on having the biggest obstacles and featuring the most per mile; a true Savage Challenge. We also scout for the gnarliest terrain available in your area to offer participants the added challenge of treacherous terrain.
At Savage Race we believe that we deserve to play just as hard as we work, and our Savages certainly deserve it after completing one of our races. That's why at the end of each event we reward participants with frosty beer, delicious barbeque and awesome music at what we like to call the "Outrageous Savage After Party."
Our mission at Savage Race is to provide endurance enthusiasts with something even bigger than the race itself. We want participants to push themselves until they think they can run no further, climb no higher and go no faster. Being a Savage means pushing yourself to the ultimate limit, and the high you will feel after completing one of our events is something that you will never forget.

Savage Race is an intense 5-6 mile obstacle run with 25 world class
obstacles, mud, fire, and barbed wire. Completion requires teamwork,
courage, and the will to push your limits farther than you ever have
before. Run individually or create a team!
Savage Race is challenging fun that will give you and your friends an adrenaline buzz that lasts for days. For the price of a bar tab, you will have a ""top five days of my life"" kind of experience. Savage Race is known for having the best obstacles, courses and venues in the mud and obstacle race business.
Savage Race is more than just a mud race or obstacle race. It’s designed to be the experience of a lifetime. We feature some of the biggest and most badass mud obstacles in the business, and we never need more than 6 miles to completely kick your ass. If you want to conquer the best obstacles in the game, tightly packed within a 4-6 mile course, we’re the race for you. There are longer obstacle courses & mud run races out there, but none with more obstacles per mile than Savage Race. At Savage Race, you spend more time on our extreme mud obstacles and less time jogging.
Each venue is different, of course, but in all cases you should expect an extreme dirty mud racing environment! Adding to the mayhem, we sprinkle 23 or more insane obstacles throughout the already-difficult course. Obstacles will vary by location, and you should always be prepared to face a surprise or two along the way.
Shriveled Richard: Jump into one of our mammoth ice water baths. This one is cold. It's certainly not an ideal situation for men in speedos. In fact, this obstacle is brutal.
Rubbers: Sprint through an uphill sea of tires. Don't fall on your face.
Thor's Grundle: Duck under the wooden baffles to get a face full of mud. It's disgusting, we know.
Back Scratcher: This is a disgustingly long series of wooden walls, hay bales, and barbed wire crawls. Most people would rather do 100 burpees if they had the choice (you don't).
Nutt Smasher: The nutt smasher is our version of the balance beam... on crack rock. It's long, wobbly, and most of you will end up falling off into the mud. Oh yeah, and the awesome people from Autism Speaks sell water balloons here, so don't be surprised if you get a balloon to the grill.
96"" Stiffie: An intense climb over an 8 foot wall. Most people can't make this climb unassisted, so don't be afraid to ask for help.
Swamp Trail (aka Shoezilla): Run through thick, shoe sucking mud. We collected over 1,000 shoes from this obstacle alone after our last race.
Lumberjack Lane: Carry a log or maybe a sand bag and march, soldier! Bad ass mofos grab two!
Big Ass Cargo Net: This obstacle is our big ass cargo net. Climb up, then climb down. We hope you aren't scared of heights.
Davey Jones' Locker: Jump off of the building into deep water. This obstacle is fun as hell.
Mach 7: Haul ass down this slippery mother. It's so high you will need an oxygen mask. Our new and improved design allows more Savages to safely slide at once.
Barn Doors: We took the doors off of Uncle Jed's barn and painted them Savage orange. Now you have to climb them.
Hay Stacks: We stack up the hay. High. Now climb!
Colon Blow 5000: Crawl up and down our large plastic colons. Okay, so they are actually plastic sewer pipes, but you can still pretend like you are a little gerbil. It's pitch black in there, and we've thrown in two barbed wire crawls to make it more interesting. Some people call this our ""scarriest"" obstacle.
Evil Bars: Evil bars are our twisted take on a childhood classic. Remember your play ground's monkey bars? Well these are longer, steeper, and more challenging than those were.
Swamp Ass: Tromp through the swamp. More mud. More sweet, sticky, lovely mud.
Incline Wall: By the time you get to the incline wall obstacle, your ass is pretty much already beat down. Your muscles are already fried, and now you have to try to make your way up a slippery incline wall. WTF Savage Race?
Tire Pendulum: We hang about 200 rubber tires from ropes and let them swing. Get a few dozen people running through at once and look out! These bad boys will be swinging everywhere, and believe me you won't want to catch one to the face.
Flaming Savages: Jump over rows of fire. Yes, real fire. Please take this one seriously. Jump over it. Do not touch it.
Mud N' Guts: Low-crawl through delicious mud under our signature Savage orange barbed wire.
Mystery Obstacles: We can't give everything away before the race. Expect a few surprises.
Competitive heats are eligible for awards. We are giving away 66 awards, so you have a great chance of going home with something! There is an award for each category, male and female. Age divisions are determined based on your age on race day. All times
are based on the official net time. We won't ship your award, so make
sure you are present at the award ceremony after the mud race.

- First Place (Age Group): Savage Race Gold Medal (22 winners)
- Second Place (Age Group): Savage Race Silver Medal (22 winners)
- Third Place (Age Group): Savage Race Bronze Medal (22 winners)
The winning male and female of the competitive heat each receive a custom engraved Savage Race trophy axe to hang on their wall. To be eligible for finisher prizes, you must compete in the competitive wave (wave 1). The top three times in each age division for males and females win a Savage Race trophy beer stein. To be eligible for finisher prizes, you must compete in the competitive wave (wave 1) of our mud run race.
We love costumes! The Most Savage Costume contest is decided by the audience. Winners receive a prize.
Spectators are welcome to walk the course, enjoy the Savage festival, and take pictures of their friends and family. $10 online, $25 at gate for people 14 and over.
We charge $10 per car, and $5 for motorcycles. Most Savages choose to carpool so that the cost per person is minimal. (Hint: carpool)
After defeating the race course, Savages reward themselves with frosty beer, delicious barbeque, and awesome music at the outrageous Savage after party. Savages over the age of 21 will get one free beer included with registration. Make sure to bring cash for purchasing additional beer and food from our top notch vendors.
Savage Race uses chip timing to record your race time. Race chips and instructions will be given on race day. Results will be available on race day. Official results will be posted online a few days after the event.
This event venue does not allow pets or coolers of any kind.
Our participants generally fall into one of two categories: easygoing weekend warrior types or fierce competitors. If you are the competitive type, make sure to sign up for our competitive heat (wave 1) to be eligible for finisher awards. If you just want to run to have fun, sign up for a non-competitive wave. Competitive or not, all participants are encouraged to help each other complete the race course. All participants are chip timed and will have their race results posted.
Savage Race wouldn’t be nearly as awesome without our lady savages. Women make up about 44% of our participants.
Bring dry clothes that suit the weather of the event day. It sucks to be too cold/hot when your friends want to stick around after the race.
You must be 14 years old on event day to participate in Savage Race. If you are under 18 on race day, you must arrive to our event with your race waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.
For kids 12 and under, the Junior Savage Race will consist of 10-12 junior obstacles in a 1/2 to 1 mile course.
Each Junior Savage will go home with an official Savage Race medal, a T-shirt, a race bib and a huge smile!
We work with many different charitable organizations and community groups. We have made significant contributions to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Autism Speaks, BASE Camp Childhood Cancer Foundation, Cambrian Foundation and Boy Scouts of America.
