No! Participants of Savage Race come from every athletic background imaginable and we welcome anyone who wants to take on the challenge.
Mandatory obstacle completion is only for those who are in the elite, SavagePRO or BlitzPRO waves and who are trying to complete 100% of the obstacles for awards and cash prizes.
NOTE: BlitzPRO is not available at any location outside of Florida. In Florida, BlitzPRO is held on Sundays at 7:30 am-7:55 am. SavagePRO is available at all Savage Race events nationwide, on Saturday at 8:00 am-8:25 am. At the Florida events, SavagePRO will be from 7:30 am - 7:55 am on Saturday.
We don't require anyone to attempt or complete any obstacle that they feel uncomfortable doing. We want everyone to have fun and feel safe! There are no penalties for skipping any obstacles in our open waves.
