What is the Boot Camp Challenge?

The Boot Camp Challenge consists of a 4.6 mile course aboard the famous Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego where Marines are made! Prepare yourself for 19 obstacles and challenges you will have to overcome used by United States Marine Corps Recruits. Some of these obstacles will include wall climbs, log hurdles, tunnel crawls, cargo net climbs, rope climbs, ammo can lifts, sandbags and more. To ensure you stay highly motivated, Marine Corps Drill Instructors await throughout the course ensuring you complete the obstacles and challenges along the way.

The “Platoon Experience” is a unique opportunity to run the Boot Camp Challenge like never before. You’ll be placed in a platoon of 30 participants and run the course together. As a platoon, you’ll meet the challenges of the course, conquer the obstacles and finish together. Marines never leave a Marine behind! Make no mistake this will be an intense and difficult, but not an impossible task. The platoon will be required to carry a team weight throughout the course, but not on or over the obstacles. Along the course you can expect the platoon to stop and perform various exercises, i.e. Jumping Jacks, Mountain Climbers and Push-ups to name a few. To enhance this experience, there will be Drill Instructors assigned to your platoon. They will encourage, motivate and guide the platoon to the finish.

The Boot Camp Challenge accepts all participants from beginners to the most experienced obstacle course racers. Are you ready for the Challenge?

What to Expect?

Expect to be challenged! We promise that you will be surprised with everything the Boot Camp Challenge will ask of you. Marines lead from the front and will never ask you to do anything we haven’t done ourselves. This race will test your speed, strength and mental fortitude. You’ll conquer REAL obstacles utilized by Marine Corps recruits throughout the course. Each obstacle will test your endurance and determination to see if you have what it takes to be a Marine. We will have different categories to challenge all levels of fitness and experience. You can compete for time and awards in the competitive category, or you can take the challenge at your own pace and have fun by yourself or with your friends in the open category. 

Entertainment

Family Friendly Activities, music, kids obstacle course, military static displays, vendor fair and more!
