Despite the ups and downs of 2020 the spartan games are on. The first episode of the Spartan Games is 24 male and Female Athletes against a number of strenuous fitness obstacles (including a 5K, Obstacle courseand swim in open water). But that’s all the fun.

What is the requirement? These athletes will participate in a series of fitness challenges and fights over a 4 day period. Then you will be chosen as the “strongest”. Oh, and they’re competing for $ 100,000. Trust us, after you’ve seen this first episode, you’ll want to do the rest.
Note: This year the Spartan Games had additional security protocols. Athletes and staff had to submit two negative COVID test results in order to participate.
