Civilian Military Combine stands apart from other obstacle course races because it is a true hybrid obstacle course race (OCR). The CMC heat starts in The PIT™ followed by a five-mile race with 25-plus obstacles. The goal of the event is to find the most versatile and conditioned athlete. Recently, the company relaunched in Brooklyn, New York and tonight the special filmed at the event airs on SNY channel.
The story of how active duty military personnel, first responders and the public join together to observe the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by combining athleticism and patriotism will be told soon when SNY airs a compelling look at the Civilian Military Combine (CMC) hybrid obstacle race event held in New York.
The new, hour-long program will tell the story of the development of the CMC Ft. Hamilton event, share details of Ft. Hamilton’s important role in American history, profile selected active duty military personnel and athletes and feature highlights from the race held at U.S. Army Garrison Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn on September 10, 2016.
“CMC Brooklyn was a poignant reminder of our nation’s triumph over this brutal attack and gave us an opportunity to honor those who serve our nation both in the military and as first responders,” said Garfield Griffiths, CMC’s vice president of event operations. “Sharing this story will inspire us all to overcome the obstacles we face in our daily lives.”
