If you like your OCR with extra mud, this year's Savage Race Maryland was for you.
Founded in 2010, Savage Race holds over a dozen races per year in two different formats: the 27+ obstacle, 5-7 mile Savage Race and the 15-20 obstacle, 3+ mile Savage Blitz... but are they still the "best-kept secret" in OCR?
“As the sport of OCR continues to boom, it was important for us to find a company that we could continue to grow with. We partnered with Savage for four events in 2018 and were blown away by the athlete response and race day atmosphere,” said David Field, CEO for Salming North America. “Lloyd and his team at Savage do an incredible job of creating a one of kind experience for each and every racer. From the start line, to the finish line festival, each Savage race has been a blast, and we can’t wait to kick off the new season with them in a few months.”
The build from my Social Misfit buddies touting their pleasant experiences with Savage Race and my personal goal of 100% obstacle completion on my last scheduled OCR for 2018 meant this race had a lot to live up to.
Carter & Stevens farm hosted Savage Race last year and began hosting Spartan races in 2015, they have parking, festival area and clearing of the course down to a science. Prior to racing Savage on Saturday (say that five times fast) I've raced at this location about five times in the last three years. However, this was my very first Savage Race
I had the opportunity this summer to take my daughter with me to various races and experience how a few different companies execute their kid's races. This article is going to discuss a few of those races. I live in the Northeast so the races that I have chosen are Bonefrog Challenge, Terrain Race, and Savage Race.
Hoo-Haa-Hoo-Haa-Hoo…..It’s time to get Savage!! Savage Race always brings their A-Game to every single event. In my opinion, they are the best obstacle course race on the market today. Not only do they have the best environment that promotes fun over competition. Let me break down the latest event in Maryland and tell you why they are the best.
Savage Race decided to try something new for 2018. A few months back they put out a photo teaser about a new event called Savage Blitz. They followed it up with a live video and we were told it would be a 3 mile course with 15-20 obstacles. They originally were doing a limited release this season with only 4 planned locations.
