NEW YORK, July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The story of how active duty military personnel, first responders and the public join together to observe the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by combining athleticism and patriotism will be told this fall when SNY airs a compelling look at the Civilian Military Combine (CMC) hybrid obstacle race event held in New York. The feature is scheduled to have its world premiere on the SNY network on Sunday, September 25, 2016 at 9 p.m.
The new, hour-long program will tell the story of the development of the CMC Ft. Hamilton event, share details of Ft. Hamilton's important role in American history, profile selected active duty military personnel and athletes and feature highlights from the race to be held at U.S. Army Garrison Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn on September 10, 2016.
The show will also include highlights of the CMC Corporate Charity Event on Friday, September 9, 2016, a free race for active duty military personnel who will be paired with civilians to tackle the course as teams.
CMC stands apart from other obstacle course races because it is the authentic hybrid obstacle course race (OCR). Race heats start in the adrenaline pumping strength element called The PIT™ followed by five-miles of 25-plus military-grade obstacles. The PIT™ is a Workout of the Day (WOD) functional fitness AMRAP (As Many Reps as Possible) timed component that is designed to level the playing field between strength athletes and endurance runners.
"CMC Ft. Hamilton will be a poignant reminder of our nation's triumph over this brutal attack and gives us an opportunity to honor those who serve our nation both in the military and as first responders," said Garfield Griffiths, CMC's vice president of event operations. "Sharing this story will inspire us all to overcome the obstacles we face in our daily lives."
"SNY is excited to be part of the inaugural CMC event at historic Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn," said Gary Morgenstern, senior vice president of programming, SNY. "We look forward to showcasing to our viewers the high level of athleticism, commitment and culture which surrounds these obstacle course racing events."
