(following quoted from Savage Race website)
“Savage Race is more than just a mud race or obstacle race. It’s designed to be the experience of a lifetime. We feature 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.”
