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.

The CMC competition is broken down into three components to test strength, endurance and agility. Race day structure will consist of The PIT (lifting element) into a race with strategically placed military obstacles. This structure is what separates the Civilian Military Combine from all other races and competitions. The PIT 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. This race structure has been carefully created, refined and reviewed by the top strength and conditioning coaches from the CrossFit community, United States Armed Forces and USA Triathlon Organization Race Directors. Exercise Elements of the PIT (lifting element):
The CMC PIT is in an AMRRAP format where each competitor is encouraged to complete ""As Many Rounds & Repetitions As Possible"" (AMRRAP) for a 7 minute time period the routine shown below:

7 - American Kettlebell Swings (40lb Males/26 lb Females)
7 - Jump over Burpee Box Jumps (20 Inch Box- Universal for Male & Females)
Competitors will remain at a single station during the rotation and there will be a JUDGE to record the competitor’s total rounds and repetitions.
The Race: The Civilian Military Combine race takes place over 5-7 miles of terrain. Designed to test your endurance, this race is unlike any mud run you’ve been in before.

We recommend all the participants to be 14 years of age or older. However, anyone under the age of 18 must have a signed waiver and a legal guardian present at all times during the race.
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.
PIT Staging Area Prior To Start Time.
All competitors will receive their start times via email prior to the race.
In addition, heat start times will be posted on the CMC website.
It is suggested that all competitors report to the PIT staging area 30-45 minutes prior to their scheduled heat time.
Failure to arrive at the CMC PIT on time will disqualify the competitor from the lifting portion of the event and they will be ineligible for awards.
Obstacle Course Race
The obstacle course race will consist of 5-7 miles of running with 20-30 military obstacles throughout the course.
Any running out of the course boundaries will result in elimination from the competition.
Follow signage at all times and listen to course marshals for directions.
Course Marshals will be present at all obstacles.
Every obstacle must be completed to be eligible for awards.
Course Marshals will keep track of competitors who do not complete obstacles. Bib numbers will be submitted to the Race Director by the Course Marshals.
Competitors are not required to complete all obstacles due to physical limitations.
CMC will provide showers at every event.
Minimum team size is 3 people with NO maximum size limit.
Please notice, early heats sell out fast. Make sure that you select a heat that will accommodate all of your teammates. Please notice all your team members to register ASAP because our registration system is on first come first serves basis.
If a heat does not appear at the heat section that means that it is sold out. If your teammates are in heat that is sold out you will have 3 options:
You will have to discuss with them and have the entire team moved to a heat that is able to accommodate everybody.
Wait for somebody to switch his/hers heat time so that you can join the rest of your team in the particular heat.
Start new team with other people that would like to join the particular team. We would do our best to accommodate all team, however for greater satisfaction we suggest to keep the teams smaller and to register soon before or after the rest of your teammates.
At the CMC events, teams are NOT required to finish together, however that is up to you to decide as a team. Because of the scoring structure of the CMC races, strategy comes into play within teams. As a team you can separate at the starting line and allow your faster runners to take off and do the race at their place. Or you can all run together and help each other throughout the course. The team score is based off the average of all the members’ PIT reps and run time, if a person on the team finishes faster that will bring the average time down for your entire team.
