Seven has revealed it’s plans for Australian Spartan.
Aussie and Kiwi firefighters, a scientist, X Games athletes, a Hollywood stuntman and motocross champions are amongst the teams taking to the course when Australian Spartan finals series begins next week.
Fifteen teams will compete for the five remaining places in the Australian Spartan semi-final.
The top-five placing teams will progress to Monday night’s (March 26 at 7.30pm) semi-final where they will face-off against proven performers TWO AND A HALF MEN, MIRACLES HAPPEN, BANKERS BY DAY, TOWNSVILLE UNDERDOGS, DONUT SQUAD, COCOA BUTTER, UNIT 5.5, CONQUER, TWO BADGERS, ONE ANCHOR and HEN’S PARTY for a place on the grand final on Monday, April 2 at 7.30pm.
The 10 grand finalists will compete in an extended Spartan course. From there, the two teams left standing out of the 10 grand finalists will race head-to-head in a spectacularly designed grand final course with the winning team taking home $150,000.
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.
