Savage Race & the Racer Experience

There is one race series I look forward to every year, Savage Race. For me, Savage Race usually provides me with the best race experience of the year. Last year, I was lucky enough to participate in both Albrightsville and the Maryland races, but this year, I had only the PA race on my calendar.

While everything isn't always peaches and cream when it comes to putting on and running an event like the ones we all love to run, there are times when your customer services skills hat must be worn. Some wear it proudly, some don't even let you know that they have one. This year, in this race, I got to see first hand what Savage is made of.

ON THE FENCE

If you ever had to jump a fence to escape that neighbor’s Rottweiler that always seemed to get loose, then your instincts will get you across this obstacle in no time. This is a challenge like no other, forcing you to clench your hands and feet as you traverse on a moving chainlink fence suspended over water. At least slipping off this fence is better than a nip in the ass from that Rottweiler.
