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 Boot Camp Challenge accepts all participants from beginners to the most experienced obstacle course racers. Are you ready for the Challenge?
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. You can also take part in the Platoon Experience where you will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of a platoon and be accompanied by Drill Instructors while building camaraderie and conquering the course.

Just like the title of Marine is earned and never given, Boot Camp Challengers will have to earn this stuff. No “everyone gets a medal” at the Depot! You must conquer a 4.6 mile obstacle course with motivated Drill Instructors and lots of sweat to earn it. We expect you to test yourself and give 100% at all times. But when you cross the finish line, you will be greeted with OOHRAHs, high fives, congratulations and some cool gear. You’ll receive a Boot Camp Challenge finisher shirt, a Boot Camp Challenge finisher medal, and course performance statistics.
