The producers of American Ninja Warrior have come up with a new way to challenge all those “athletes” who want their five minutes of fame.

Here’s an exclusive sneak peek of Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge, a new reality series on NBC this summer that’s inspired by Spartan obstacle course races. In the show, groups of friends, families, and co-workers must work together as they race across specially designed courses “engineered to test their determination, endurance, and will.” Thirty-six teams will compete on the most demanding Spartan course ever devised to win $250,000.

The winning team from each episode will move on to face the biggest and most demanding course ever built at the National Finals, where one team will claim the first ever Spartan championship. 

Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge debuts June 13 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
