Savage Race is as competitive as you make it. Runners at our events come from all different athletic (or non-athletic!) backgrounds. Participants generally fall into one of two categories: easygoing weekend warriors out to enjoy the event and challenge themselves or fierce competitors trying to win the race.
If you are the competitive type, make sure to sign up for SavagePro in order to be eligible for finisher awards such as the Savage Axe, cash prizes (at select events), and gold, silver, & bronze medals.
If you want to run to test your physical abilities while also having fun, sign up for a non-competitive wave.
If you're interested in a workout routine that is tailor-made for Savage Race, be sure to check out the official Savage Race Training Guide.
Competitive or not, all participants are encouraged to help each other complete the race course. That's what makes it so fun!
