In case you missed it last year, season 2 of The Road To The Reebok Spartan Race World Championship is coming. Unfortunately, for me and the rest of Canada we weren’t able to watch the season except for the actual World Championships. It looks like it will be the same this year. Regardless, it is pretty exciting that it is coming back for season 2. That is definitely a positive for our young sport!
The other exciting part of Spartan Race being on National TV is there is always a chance you have a chance to be on TV! Who doesn’t want a chance to be on TV?
Here is the list of scheduled races that will be on NBC and when they will air:
|Tues. July 21||Bigfork, MT||NBCSN||11 p.m.|
|Tues. August 18||Breckenridge, CO||NBCSN||10 p.m.|
|Tues. September 15||Palmerton, PA||NBCSN||10 p.m.|
|Tues., October 13||Washougal, WA||NBCSN||10 p.m.|
|Tues., November 17||Vernon, NJ||NBCSN||10:30 p.m.|
|Sun., December 20||Lake Tahoe, CA||NBC||3 p.m.|
Will you be at any of those races? I’m definitely going to be in Montana and if everything goes well I will also be at the World Championships in Lake Tahoe!
One last thing to consider, if you are racing for rankings, you get more points for competing in an NBC broadcasted race. For example, if you are racing in a Sprint you only get 96% of your points, however, if you it is an NBC broadcasted Sprint you get 101% of your points! You can be damn sure that these races will be some of the most stacked races, with athletes battling for top ranking!
