This might sound absolutely absurd, but it’s legit: the organization the puts on the Spartan Race obstacle racing series announced today it is searching for “the world’s fittest bride” for a new made-for-TV challenge that will debut this fall. The Spartan Fittest Bride Challenge will be held Oct. 17-18 in Pittsfield, Vt. Brides-to-be will get the chance to appear on a TV news story and the the winner will receive a wedding reception at Riverside Farm, one of New England’s most exclusive wedding venues.
Contestants must be either formally engaged and/or planning to be married by next summer. Interested brides-to-be will need to apply for their chance to compete by providing a brief message telling Spartan about themselves, accompanied by a link to a photo. The candidates chosen for the Spartan Fittest Bride Challenge will be put through an obstacle course test and the fastest time up and down the mountain will be declared the winner.
