RTE are looking for Ireland's fittest, fastest, strongest families to take part and compete against other families in large scale events over the course of the summer. At the end of it all, the winning family will receive a grand prize of €15,000.
After physical and scientific testing, twelve families will qualify to enter the most extreme fitness competition ever.
Over six weeks these elite families will compete against each other on the toughest endurance courses in the country. After each event the weakest family will be eliminated, until there’s just one family standing.
Overseeing the whole process will be four mentors, well known faces from the world of Irish sport. They will mentor the families, working with them each week on fitness, dietary plans and coaching them to elite levels. Already signed up are Olympic boxing champion Kenneth Egan, international rugby coach Eddie O’Sullivan and legendary Clare GAA bainisteoir Davy Fitz.
Each family team will be comprised of four immediate members e.g. Grandparents / Parents / Children / Step-Children. There must be a minimum of one parent and one male or one female on a team. The minimum age is 14 years old on July 1st 2013. There is no maximum age.
