About CMC

What is CMC?

­CMC is the world’s fastest growing community of Hybrid Athletes, combining 4+ miles of obstacle racing with our revolutionary first challenge, The PIT.

What is The PIT?

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! Learn more by clicking HERE.

Is the CMC a Race?

Yes. The CMC is a timed event. Our course is designed so you can go as fast or as slow as you are comfortable with, but it is most certainly a race. We keep our heats small so our athletes don’t bunch up and wait in lines at obstacles.

Can I run with my friends?

Absolutely! In fact, we encourage you to build a team of your own or join one of ours when you register.

Is the CMC similar to other events out there?

Yes and No! CMC is the world’s fastest growing community of Hybrid Athletes, combining 4+ miles of obstacle racing with our revolutionary first challenge, The PIT.

Our goal isn’t to cover you in mud while you wait in line at obstacles; it’s to give you the opportunity to test your fitness on a challenging, fun and well-organized course.

What is the age limit to participate?

CMC events have no age limit. People of all ages can participate. Athletes under the age of 16 must have a legal guardian present on event day. Athletes under the age of 18 need a signed waiver by a legal guardian.

ANY LIVEL ATHLETE can do the CMC! We offer four divisions in for the Pit so you can choose the weights you are most comfortable with. Please, visit our ABOUT page to find out which division is best for you.

Can women enter?

Of course, in fact CMC has the highest percentage of female competitors of any adventure racing series. Almost 40% of our races are female.

Can I run as individual?

Of course! But it’s always better with your friends. When registering, create your team and challenge your friends!

How big can my team be?

How many friends do you have? Challenge them ALL!!! Teams must be at least 3 people, but there is no cap on the max number.

Can the team captain pay for everyone? Do they have to?

Yes, team captains can pay for the entire team (this works well for companies who want to pay on one credit card). However, this is not  a requirement, and if you’d rather have each individual pay, you can also do that.

Can the team captain invite teammates?

Access your account at www.eventbrite.com, Find your team and if you’re a team member and want to share this team with others, just use the social sharing icons near the top of the page. Team captains can send email invitations by using their toolbar.

Do I have to finish with my team?

No, if you are going for placement as a team, you need to go as fast as possible during the run. The team score in a given division is the average of the team members’ scores in that division.
