about the event
What is C4?
C4, short for Competitive Combat Conditioning Course, was created to provide a proving ground for tactical athletes to test their skills, abilities, and readiness against competitors from all backgrounds. Military, LEO, and civilian shooters are welcome at C4. Athletes are broken into five divisions: Elite, Mens, Womens, Men’s Masters, and Scaled. The competition consists of a balance between functional fitness and tactical proficiency. This means the strongest competitors are fit and capable with their shooting abilities.
During our Founder’s service to our great Nation, he spent countless hours on the range. It wasn’t uncommon for Nate to find himself competing in a combat conditioning course amongst his teammates for pride. Courses were set up to test physical and tactical proficiency, but always had the added benefit of pure fun. It’s this experience that has become the inspiration for C4.
Why is C4 different?
C4 embodies the definition of what it means to be a tactical athlete, weighing fitness and shooting abilities as a complete package. Other competitions available today solely focus on the individual’s ability to shoot and are typically very brief, never truly testing the shooter’s physical fitness, more specifically, the shooter’s ability to shoot with an elevated heart rate after rucking 1.5 miles, navigating obstacles with full kit, and moving significant weight. Not testing these abilities leaves a huge gap in the tactical athletic world. C4 bridges this gap.
