TV show description:
This competition series is inspired by Spartan Race, the world’s most demanding obstacle course races that raises the bar on team competitions.
Groups of friends, families, co-workers, and more must work together as they race across specially designed Spartan courses. They are engineered to test their determination, endurance and will. Teams of five compete on one the most demanding courses ever devised and have to push through the pain to win $250,000.
In each episode, six teams of five compete in the world’s most grueling mile-long obstacle course. Each team consists of two men, two women and a team captain. No team gets through the demanding obstacles or crosses the finish line without working together.
From muddy crawls under barbed wire to rope-burning climbs, the competition culminates with one of the most arduous obstacles ever built: the dreaded slip wall. As teams progress in the competition and the obstacles get more punishing, teamwork is the only way to come out on top.
The hosts include former NFL linebacker Dhani Jones and former LA Galaxy star Kyle Martino. NBC news anchor MJ Acosta and TV host/ninja contestant Evan Dollard serve as course reporters.
