I had the opportunity to preview run the Savage Race in Clermont, Florida with a bunch of other YouTubers. We were invited out by the Savage Race managers to put the course to the test. Thanks to Sam and Lloyd for letting us run the course!!!!
The Savage Race is a mud and obstacle race similar to the Warrior Dash, Tough Mudder, or the Muddy Buddy. The first Savage Race will take place in the Orlando, Florida area on August 27th with an entire race series planned throughout the US. The race will span about 5K at the Revolution Off-Road Experience in Clermont, Florida.
This is not your average 5K race, though. You will climb over walls, trudge through mud, up sand hills, run down muddy trails and over cargo nets in the Savage Race.
After the race, you will experience the Savage celebration with free beer and BBQ to quench that thirst and hunger you built up while running the race. The best part about this celebration? You don’t have to participate in the Savage Race to join in the fun! The Savage Celebration will be free for spectators, too!
Here’s more from the Savage Race site:
Savage Race is the most badass mud and obstacle race event yet! Savage Race features challenging and creative obstacles spread out over a 5 kilometer course. We warn you that this race is not for everyone, and it’s definitely not your average 5K run. If you’re afraid of extreme obstacles, fire, mud, and bruises, DO NOT sign up for Savage Race. But if you’re tough, you need to prove it. Are you a Savage? Then prove it at Savage Race.
Don’t want to run? Party down at the Savage Celebration with beer, barbeque and awesome music! Entrance is free for spectators!
The Savage Course
We carefully select each venue to ensure that our races occur on the gnarliest terrain available in your region. We won’t settle for a boring cow pasture, or just any old piece of land. Nope. Our courses feature plenty of natural features to keep things interesting. Each venue is different, of course, but in all cases you should expect an extreme racing environment!
Adding to the mayhem, we sprinkle 12-15 insane obstacles throughout the already-difficult course. To find out which obstacles you will face, check out our location-specific event course maps. Typical obstacles include fire jumps, barbed wire, mud crawls, climbing walls, cargo nets, and lake swims. Obstacles will vary by location, and you should always be prepared to face a surprise or two along the way.
The Savage Celebration
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. There is no admission fee for family and friends to come party with their Savages, so please encourage them to come watch you on the big day!
