“Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge”
Season Premiere Monday, June 12 at 10 PM ET/PT
on NBC
 
          The exhilarating summer competition series returns with a new gritty setting and the most grueling obstacle course ever made.  From the producers of "American Ninja Warrior" comes a new season of "Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge," featuring six teams per episode competing on a mile-long course that's equally demanding and punishing. Each team of five will be responsible for getting their teammates through mud, water and barbed wire, culminating with an attempt to conquer the dreaded Slip Wall for a shot at $250,000.
 

          Inspired by Spartan Race, the creators of the world’s most demanding obstacle course races, “Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge” 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 engineered to test their determination, endurance and will. Teams of five will compete on one the most demanding courses ever devised and will have to push through the pain to win $250,000.
