Spartan Race Comes to NBC

Have you ever seen one of those helmet cameras (like Go-Pro) and wondered what it’d be like to take one through an obstacle race?  What about having a television network film and broadcast the race and the competitors on TV?

Well now you can.

The Reebok Spartan Race Series has partnered with NBC Sports and they are bringing obstacle racing to television.  NBC will be filming 8 professional athletes and 4 everyday Spartans at the Spartan Race World Championships in Killington, Vermont next month for a 90 minute TV special.

How cool is that?  And the even cooler news is that ANYONE can register for this event.

In fact, Spartan Race has launched a Get On TV campaign in which people can submit a story about how training and racing in a Spartan Race has transformed their life for a chance to be featured on this special.

Together, Spartan Race and NBC Sports  will showcase the world of obstacle racing to the television audiences. This event, the culmination of the 2013 Reebok Spartan Race Series, will take place on September 21-22, 2013, in scenic central Vermont, near Spartan Race headquarters in Pittsfield.

Tens of thousands of obstacle racing competitors and enthusiasts from around the world will converge in New England, where $250,000 in cash and prizes will be on the line. At the World Championship, top-ranked Reebok Spartan Race athletes, Olympians, and amateur athletes alike will compete side-by-side.

Spartan Race has partnered with NBC Sports Group to chronicle the amazing people and stories behind the race series and the World Championship, culminating in a 90-minute TV special that will air on the NBC Sports Network on October 19, 2013.

  1. I’ve run 20 OCRs so far and have only been able to do 2 spartans. Looking to get to vermont for the championships or fenway. Would be awesome to get a free entry for a change. Would make the 6 hour drive so much more worth it

  2. I’ve done an obstacle race before (Primal Mud Run), but have never done a Spartan Race and hope to cross it off my list.

  3. I just started running and am truly inspired by your blog, I would love to win the chance to participate on this race. Seems like an awesome challenge!
