Posted on

Friday Night Lights‘ former stars are bringing a little piece of Texas to the Prairie State. Five years after the sports drama went off-air, cast members Taylor Kitsch (Tim Riggins), Minka Kelly (Lyla Garrity), Zach Gilford (Matt Saracen), and Aimee Teegarden (Julie Taylor) will reunite on June 11 for an obstacle-ridden race just outside of Chicago.

The run is an eight mile, 24-obstacle Spartan Super race sponsored by Marriott Rewards. The event hits just after the series’ full reunion at the Austin-based ATX Television Festival June 9-11, which celebrates the 10th anniversary of FNL‘s premiere.

“I’m really looking forward to running on the Marriott Rewards team at the Spartan Race in Chicago and catching up with my former cast mates from the show,” Kitsch said in a release.

No word if Coach Taylor will be giving a pre-race pep talk.
