Alright guys, so about a couple of months ago I brought you word about Spartan Race and their insane obstacle courses (see blog Here)
Well, now they're really outdone themselves with a new deal and awesome new promotion: Spartan Race is being aired on national television, on NBC, bringing adventure/obstacle racing to the forefront for the first time. Many times in the past (paintball, Crossfit, BMX, X games, etc) an NBC/ESPN airing has brought a fringe sport into the mainstream
Check out this interview with Spartan Race CEO Joe DeSena on CNBC:
Now, here's the even Cooler part!
YOU can be on TV with them. Spartan Race is running a campaign to get a couple of professionals and a few average Joes to have their story shared on NBC
Check out this page for details: Your Spartan Story..... On TV!
NBC will be filming 8 professional athletes and 4 everday Spartans (that'd be most of you guys!) at the Spartan Race World Championships in Killington, Vermont next month on September 21st for a 90 minute TV special.
And Anyone can register for this event and go run the televised race in Killington (in Beast and Sprint distances).
