TerrainVaries by location, but plan on 4-6 miles of the gnarliest terrain available.
Signature ObstacleColossus – On one side you’ll try and ascend the tallest quarter-pipe in obstacle racing, only to find yourself climbing another 8 feet to the top of obstacle racing’s biggest water slide. With a near vertical drop you’ll slide so fast you’ll barely have time to yelp in fear.
Hardest ObstacleLumberjack Lane, where participants must lug heavy objects like logs and sandbags around a long muddy loop. Badasses are encouraged to grab two, if they can.
GearAthletic clothes or costumes (don’t miss out on the “Most Savage Costume” contest), socks, shoes and a kick-ass attitude. Check out our full list of recommended gear here

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.

I LOVE the Chicago venue! It is fast and flat!
I love all the venues (except I refuse to run Ohio)
If you’re not running savage- do you even OCR?!
One of the BEST in the business!


Aug 02, 2018 by Maira

Great staff, well organized, tough obstacles, perfect distance. Only a few of the great things about Savage Race. They take great care of their volunteers and the race itself is always a great competitive environment. One of if not the best OCR race series around.


Best OCR series out there!

Aug 02, 2018 by Dale Hall

I've run two Savages this year with another 3 on the books to go. This is, by far, one of the best OCR series out there.. Not only are the obstacles challenging, they are fun! Instead of hearing, "Oh shit, here's the stupid bucket again" you hear, "Awesome! Here's Sawtooth!" (Or Colossus or Twirly Bird or any of the others) The races are very organized and the staff is awesome. Even the Heads of the Organization are actively involved with the runners constantly getting their input to make things better. And, not to mention, the prices aren't outrageous either! You can't ask for a better time. #SAF

Savage Race could be the best run OCR organization. Great value, fantastic and innovative courses and challenges. Chicago was my 3rd full Savage and second Blitz of 2018. I can't wait for the next so I can add to my Syndicate collection.


Aug 02, 2018 by Kressa Peterson

Savage is such a GREAT race in every way. I can not say another good things about them. The race is tough but if you cant get through an obstacle there is always someone to lend a helping hand and a positive word. Such a welcoming group. The organization is the best in the business. Always so happy when a Savage race is coming up!!

Event Name: Ohio Savage Race 2018 

Savage puts on an outstanding race series! The standard by which to compare all OCR! They blend challenge and fun so that all racers...first timers to elites...can enjoy it! The tagline of the perfect distance and best obstacles is spot on! Onl complaint is that there arent more offered. Keep up the great work Savage Team!!


Perfect run

Aug 02, 2018 by Allen Cole

I enjoy Savage Races because it is the perfect distance and challenges for me to achieve my goals. Savage is setting the bar with their customer service, other organizations are still in the mud. All volunteers are smiling & willing to help out. Only OCR that I have drove 10.5 hours one way to race & drove home on the same day after running 7.5 miles. Once you go Savage, you never go back to another ocr.


Challengely fun and addictive

Aug 02, 2018 by Joe Orlando

By far the best obstacles in any OCR. For reference I've done; Spartan, Terrain Race, Bone Frog, Rugged Maniac, and Battle Frog. Great courses, excellent layouts and amazing staff. Anytime a mistake is made they will instantly own and rectify it. Highly recommended, best bang for your buck in OCR.


Aug 01, 2018 by David steele

This was my first time running this location. Great race as always and the level of kindness from everyone from the owners, volunteers and even other runner's is awesome. That is the main reason I have run 15 races so far and will continue to do so.


FUN

Aug 01, 2018 by Patrick

This was the best experience I’ve ever had at an ocr!
So much so I ran it again the same day!
Savage has renewed my love for this sport!
They by far have the best obstacles around and it was an awesome course to run
Would highly recommend to anyone
