WHAT IS CMC?
Civilian Military Combine (CMC) is the ultimate obstacle course racing and fitness event that’s specifically designed to put endurance and strength athletes on equal footing! The CMC course is unlike any other mud run, obstacle race, or adventure race available to the public.
Founded in 2011, it is the ONLY obstacle course race on the planet featuring The PIT™, a 5 minute WOD style, nonstop, cross-training format guaranteed to get your heart pumping and your endorphins flowing. Your family, friends and fellow racers will cheer you on as you put your strength and stamina to the test. The atmosphere is electrifying! Try it once and you’ll be hooked! Next up, tackle 25 + military grade obstacles over a course of 4-5 miles.
This unique structure of the strength element: The PIT™ + the endurance element: The Course, is what separates CMC from all other races and competitions. In addition, CMC has been carefully created, refined and reviewed by the top strength and conditioning coaches from the CrossFit community, United States Armed Forces and The Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) World Championship Race Director.

It can be hard for the people that are looking for something hard and would be doable for the people that just want to enjoy themselves.
CMC is the world’s fastest growing community of Patriotic Athletes: combining 4+ miles of obstacle racing with our revolutionary first challenge, The PIT. Mud washes off, wounds heal, and sore muscles recover, but the pride that comes from conquering a CMC will never fade.
The PIT is CMC’s first challenge, requiring both physical and mental fortitude. This 5-minute AMRAP workout (As Many Reps As Possible) consists of athletic, military-inspired, functional fitness movements designed to level the playing field between endurance and strength athletes. Your teammates, the spectators, and our DJ’s beats are your inspiration. Come prepared, put your strategy to the test, and dominate The PIT!
Obstacles may include:
Ranger Ropes, Ladder Walls, Gauntlet, Hay Bale Mountain, Log Carry, Mud Pit, Water Crossing, Forest Run, Low Crawl, Hurdles, Inverted Walls, Over-Unders, Downhill Water Chute, The Asp, A-Frame & Trench Unders, Cargo Nets, Half Pipe High Crawl, Foxhole Tunnels, River Run.
There will be water stations all around the course and also there will be paramedics that will be able to easily get to any part of the course.

The CMC competition is designed for all level athletes to test strength, endurance and agility. Race day structure consists of “The PIT” (strength element) transitioning into a mountain run with military obstacles positioned throughout. The difficulty of the course is determined by you the competitor, whether you are a weekend warrior looking for the ultimate challenge or a competitive athlete looking to win... CMC is for you.
The PIT consists of 3 basic movements and it is designed to be the great equalizer by leveling the playing field between power athletes and endurance runners to determine the best overall conditioned athlete. As a competitor your goal is to accumulate as many repetitions as possible. The exercises in the PIT are simple universal movements that all athletes, no matter what sport or fitness background, can relate to.
Rules Inside The PIT
Competitors must remain at their station until instructed to rotate.
Individuals and teams will be randomly assigned to a strength element in the PIT upon entering the “On Deck” area.
Competitors will start the round in the standing position in front of the strength element.
Do not touch or perform any exercise until the buzzer has sounded. Once the buzzer goes off the athlete can then start.
Dropping or throwing of any weight (kettlebell or thruster bar) above the waist will lead to the disqualification of all repetitions for that strength element.
Any unruly behavior in the PIT will lead to expulsion from premises.
Rotation of Stations
Once the buzzer is sounded to end the round, the judge will walk with you to your next station.
Upon completion of all 4 strength elements competitors will transition to the mountain course.
Set a Goal: Each competitor determines the difficulty of the PIT and obstacle course by how hard you push yourself.
This unique structure is what separates the Civilian Military Combine from all other races and competitions.
This race structure has been carefully created, refined and reviewed by the top strength and conditioning coaches from the Cross Fit community, United States Armed Forces and USA Triathlon Organization Race Directors.
