Civilian Military Combine
Saturday, September 16, 2017
Fort Hamilton
Brooklyn, NY 11252
United States

The only active military base in the city of NY, USAG Fort Hamilton is located in the heart of Brooklyn overlooking NY Harbor and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. It was from this location that an American battery fired cannons at an approaching British naval convoy on July 4, 1776, at the start of the American Revolution. Today, Fort Hamilton is a Base Support Installation for the greater New York City area, playing a major role in coordinating disaster relief efforts. It also serves members of the military, their family, and over 70,000 veterans in the New York City Metropolitan Area. The perfect location for CMC – where athleticism, patriotism and community abound. 

A five-mile world class CMC obstacle course race. Featuring over 25 military grade obstacles, this course has been carefully created, refined and reviewed by the course designer for the Obstacle Racing World Championships 

The PIT is the inspirational start of the race and the adrenaline pumping strength element where each heat of roughly 100 competitors charge into a large area surrounded by cheering fans and motivating music. The structure consists of four basic AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible) WOD style cross training fitness movements in five minutes such as: weight-lifting repetitions, kettle-bell exercises, burpees and push presses. The goal of the competitors is to accumulate as many repetitions as possible. The exercises are simple, universal movements that all athletes, no matter what sport or fitness background, can relate to.

Once you conquer The PIT, prepare to take on our 5+ mile world class obstacle course race featuring 25 + military grade obstacles. In addition to obstacles such as 12 ft. ladder walls, The BOX (our custom rig), rope climbs, Navy SEAL style (rolling) balance beams, CMC incorporates a handful of new obstacles in each event including The Irish Table, Spin City, Ranger Ropes, and The Flying Monkey (as seen on American Ninja Warrior).
