Running was popular in Europe long before it caught on in America, which is why most races are measured in kilometers and why most of the Pilgrims were eaten by bears. Race to the top of the food chain with this Groupon.

The New England Mountain Assault consists of two elements. The first, called The Pit, challenges you to prove your strength with push presses, kettlebell swings, and box jumps with burpees. Stage two is a 5- to 7-mile race with military-style obstacles such as wall climbs, water crossings, and hurdles. Contestants do not need to compete in The Pit to participate in the race.
The event takes place on Saturday, June 29, at Amesbury Sports Park.
Civilian Military Combine
Marathons are great for testing endurance, but when competitors want to see how they measure up in strength and agility, they sign up for one of Civilian Military Combine's events. Long-distance runners may scoff at the 5- to 7-mile course—until they see the obstacles that break up that course. For example, runners might have to carry logs up a hill, crawl under barbed wire, navigate water crossings, and climb over cargo nets. And that's only if they survive The Pit, a pre-race testing ground where each contestant must endure 7-minute bouts of push presses, kettlebell swings, and box jumps with burpees. The brainchild of coaches from the United States Armed Forces, CrossFit, and USA Triathlon, CMC's events are sure to be prime physical challenges.
