The Savage Race is an intense 6-7 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.

Waves start at 9:00 am and continue every twenty minutes. We try to accommodate wave preferences, but we are not able to in all circumstances. Actual start times will be e-mailed to you one week before your event. We will make sure that all team members are in the same start time.

Award / Prizes: 

Take your experience to the next level with SavagePro.To be eligible for SavagePRO age group awards and cash prizes, you must register for the SavagePRO wave at 9:00 AM on Saturday only. SavagePRO costs $30 more than open heats.

Post-race Party: 

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.

Team informations: 

Not all team members need to register at the exact same time. After a team is created, anyone can join later, so be sure you lock in your team ASAP. The earlier you register, the more likely your team will get your requested start time. Even if waves are full, we will ensure you don't get separated from your teammates.

Sign up as a spectator and you'll receive an all access pass to explore the course. Get up close and personal with all the obstacles without risking the the muddy consequences!
Each spectator gets a full color course map complete with photos of all of the obstacles to help you navigate the course. Use this to get to the best obstacles in time to take the perfect picture or simply show your support. Spectator passes are also ideal for independent photographers, bloggers and journalist. We guarantee once you witness one of our courses first hand, you'll be eager to sign up as an official Savage Race runner next time around!

We charge $10 per car, $25 for RVs, and $5 for motorcycles. Most Savages choose to carpool so that the cost per person is minimal. (Hint: carpool)
