Calling all Spartan athletes!

Recommended Posts

Hi Gymnation,


My name is Stella, I'm a Casting Producer for a new AUS TV show called Spartan, which is an extreme obstacle course competition.


We are currently casting and are looking for New Zealand and Australia's fittest teams of 3 to take part in the event. I thought it would be well suited to the Gymnation community.


The teams are groups of 3 and can be made up of family/friends/colleagues or training buddies. It will be a race across specially designed Spartan courses challenging both mental and physical limits. All involved have the chance to win a generous (six figure AUD) cash prize.


If you could help share this with anyone you think may be interested, that would be hugely appreciated.


Key points for clarity:

  • Teams of three can be male/female or mixed.  
  • It is a team based competition and any team is only as strong as their weakest member.
  • Mental and physical fitness is paramount to compete in the spartan course.
  • People need to be 18 and over.
  • We will be doing a casting tour in New Zealand in the beginning of November and will then cover costs for shortlisted teams to travel and stay in Australia.
  • Timing required would be approx. a week but if they do really well and decide they want to compete again there is an option of a second 5 day event period.
  • Filming will be in December, exact dates TBC.
  • We only need one team member to initially apply for their team providing the teams full contact details.  We then take it from there.
  • There are limited spaces so we don’t want anyone to miss out by delaying their application.
  • Applications are closing very soon so don't leave your application to the last minute.  


If you want to do research to get an idea of similar shows see Spartan Ultimate team challenge but our series will only be similar and not exactly the same as this:
