With their spot-on marketing, and Facebook posts from my east coast friends, I COULD NOT WAIT to run a Savage Race. Being that they don’t go further west than Texas, I decided to take matters into my own hands and signed up for the Dallas Savage Race on September 10, 2016.
Mad River Mountain: Zanesville OH was the sight for this year’s Savage Race Ohio. The event has been held at this location for some years, and the success of the Savage series would not disappoint. A hot morning brought the competitors to the Mad River Mountain ski facility in Zanesfield, OH (a short distance Northwest of Columbus). Serene farmlands entailed the drive up to the location in the rural area; with its unassuming lack of hills? Rounding the last turn unveiled where they were hiding, and Savage Race found them.
The second in the series of Savage Race's Inside the Obstacle dropped today on social media. This week Matty T. of Savage Race bring us behind the scenes with a crowd favorite obstacle, Colossus. Colossus is one of the most intimidating looking obstacles from the bottom of the quarter pipe. Matty T. breaks it down and gives up some insight into the build on the obstacle as well as a few techniques to make it a success on race day.
