Seven puts Australian Spartan on Sundays

Seven has finally set a launch date for Australian Spartan.

Inspired by the fitness phenomenon Spartan Race which takes place in 35 countries across five continents,Australian Spartan demonstrates Seven’s commitment to delivering event television.

Hosted by Edwina Bartholomew and Hamish McLachlan, with Wendell Sailor as the program’s sideline reporter, Australian Spartan can only be conquered by a truly unified team of three and takes place on the biggest course built in the country.

Teams race across a series of specially designed obstacles engineered to challenge their ability to work together as a group and challenge their physical and mental toughness. In the end, only one team will rise to become the ultimate Australian Spartan champions.

After a series of heats and one semi-final, 10 grand finalists compete in an extended Spartan course. From there, the two teams left standing race head-to-head in a spectacularly designed grand final course with the winning team taking home $150,000.

Australian Spartan premieres  7pm Sunday on Seven.
