About Civilian Military Combine:

Civilian Military Combine (CMC) offers a series of competitive fitness events, each defined by a one-of-a-kind, military-inspired obstacle course race. Launched on September 10, 2011 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11, CMC measures endurance with three to seven miles of intense fitness components including The PIT, a number of exercises resembling basic military training, scaling walls, rope courses and pipe crawls. To date, tens of thousands of fitness-focused, “weekend warriors” athletes of various fitness levels have registered for one or more of these Saturday challenges. Participants are scored in two areas, performance and timing, by a team of experienced and trained judges.


At this time Civilian Military Combine has not announced future plans for the company. Stay tuned as we learn more about the future of CMC.
