NEW YORK, May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Civilian Military Combine LLC (CMC) announced the second location of its 2016 obstacle race series at the Pepsi Amphitheater at Fort Tuthill in Flagstaff, Arizona on October 1st. The first event is September 10, 2016 at the Ft. Hamilton Army Base in Brooklyn, NY.
CMC stands apart from the other obstacle course races in the market as the authentic "hybrid" obstacle course race that exclusively starts with a WOD strength training AMRAP timed component - The PIT™ - followed by a 4-5 mile race with 25+ military grade obstacles. The PIT™ is designed to be the great equalizer between power athletes and endurance runners to determine the best overall conditioned athlete.
This year, CMC introduces exciting new elements to the series including obstacles such as The Irish Table, Spin City, Ranger Ropes and The Flying Monkey (as seen on American Ninja Warrior); CMCPRO heats with cash prizes; and CMCKIDS where kids can try their very own PIT™ experience along with a one-mile obstacle course. CMC is an event for the entire family.
Garfield Griffiths, CMC's VP of Event Operations and one of the country's top obstacle course race producers said "As part of the CMC relaunch, we have been partnering with special venues that can provide an exceptional experience for our participants. We are very excited to team up with Fort Tuthill to showcase our hybrid event format and to give Arizona its very first taste of The PIT™. CMC offers a unique twist on the standard obstacle race/mud run where being just fast or good at obstacles isn't enough. CMC will test your strength, speed and agility all in one amazing and fun day."
Flagstaff is the destination for all seasons, alive with cultural diversity, natural beauty, history, adventure and recreation. Located in the heart of the Coconino national forest, it's surrounded by mountains, a desert and the world's largest Ponderosa Pines. Its 7,000-foot elevation and low humidity provide mild weather conditions throughout most of the year.
CMC will be announcing other special venue events as part of its 2016 program with many more planned in 2017 as it grows its nationwide footprint. CMC will also be taking part in the Penn Mutual Collegiate Rugby Championship tailgating events June 4-5 at Academy Fields, adjacent to Talen Energy Stadium in Philadelphia where participants can get a little taste of CMC.
