MCRD Boot Camp Challenge

A fun and furious 3-mile course featuring obstacles used only by Marine Recruits at the Marine Recruit Depot. Get "encouragement" along the way at each obstacle by MCRD Drill Instructors. Compete as an individual or a member of a 3-person or 5-person team. Great post-race party with plenty of music, food, drinks and beer, awards to the top 3 finishers in each category/age group, official race T-Shirts to all entrants.

This is a 3-mile obstacle course on paved roads and hard-packed dirt. There are over 40 obstacles, including hay jumps, tunnel crawls, log hurdles, 6 ft wall, trenches, cargo net crawls, and push up stations.

Never underestimate a 5k! Any race is only going to be as hard as you push it. Gut Check generally brings about 20-25 teams for this event as we've been doing it for years. Love to have you join us! If you do want to be part of a team please say so and we'll take care of ya!

Training will begin the first part of June to get the teams ready. Check out the results page to see how they've done over the years -
