Plot Synopsis

Inspired by Spartan Race, SPARTAN: ULTIMATE TEAM CHALLENGE follows groups of friends, families, co-workers and more who must work together as they race across specially designed Spartan courses engineered to test their determination, endurance and will. Teams of five -- comprised of two men, two women and an elite Spartan athletes -- compete on one the most demanding obstacle courses ever devised and have to push through the pain to win $250,000. Hosted by Dhani Jones and Kyle Martino with Evan Dollard and MJ Acosta as course reporters, SPARTAN features six teams in each one-hour episode competing on a mile-long course that's equally demanding and punishing. Each team of five is 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 the cash prize. Season 2 of SPARTAN: ULTIMATE TEAM CHALLENGE premiered on Monday, June 12, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT on NBC. U.S. Winter Olympian Apolo Ohno and ESPN and radio personality Kelvin Washington deliver the play-by-play action to audiences as the teams race through the demanding course. MJ Acosta returns as a sideline reporter alongside Major League Baseball all-star Nick Swisher, who joins the series. In each episode, six teams of five -- four athletes alongside the support of a team captain -- compete for a shot at $250,000. No team can get through the course and reach the finish line without working together. From rope-burning climbs to crawls through cold, wet mud, the competition culminates with some of the most back-breaking obstacles ever built. Along the course teams encounter the relentless tire swing and the dreaded slip wall, plus the debut of rigorous new obstacles that have never been seen before in any competition.
On Sunday, July 23, 2017 from 9-11pm ET/PT, NBC premiered the Season 2 finale of SPARTAN: ULTIMATE TEAM CHALLENGE. In the two-hour season ender, the top six teams from the season compete on the longest, toughest Spartan course yet. Teams exhibit immeasurable amounts of strength, heart and determination as they fight their way to the finish line. The first team that conquers the mud, water and treacherous obstacles wins the $250,000 prize and title of Spartan Champion.
