CULVER CITY, Calif., Aug. 1, 2019 - Amazon Prime Video announced today that over 60 teams

from 30 countries will be competing in World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji. The series is

hosted and executive produced by Bear Grylls (Man vs. Wild, Running Wild), and from executive

producers Lisa Hennessy (Eco-Challenge, The Biggest Loser), Eric Van Wagenen (Survivor, The

Amazing Race, The Apprentice), and Emmy Award-winning producer Mark Burnett (Survivor, The

Voice, Shark Tank). Renowned as epic, gritty and unpredictable, the race will take place in Fiji

this fall. The human drama, produced by MGM Television, will be captured in a 10-episode

series to premiere worldwide on Amazon Prime Video in 2020.

World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji is the ultimate expedition race in which teams will race non-stop, 24 hours a day, across hundreds of miles of rugged backcountry terrain complete with mountains, jungles and oceans. Each race team is comprised of four competitors, including at least one member of the opposite sex, and one assistant crewmember that will be helping their team from base camp. Each team will race under a single country flag while making their way through some of the most impenetrable terrain Fiji has to offer.

The race will encompass a variety of non-motorized forms of transportation and other various

challenges including outrigger paddling, mountain biking, rappelling, climbing, whitewater

rafting, paddle boarding, and canyoneering, which teams must pass assessment tests in.

Navigation must be done with a map and compass only and teams will be required to use

expedition problem-solving skills in their quest to the finish line. If any team member quits or is

unable to complete the race, the entire team will be disqualified. Only teams that can work

together under extreme stress and fatigue have any hope of reaching the finish.

"Challenging oneself in the outdoors is as relevant today as it was 25 years ago when Eco-

Challenge began. It’s the ultimate test of human spirit, teamwork and honoring our planet,” said

Mark Burnett, Chairman, Worldwide Television Group MGM. “I can’t wait to see the drama

unfold as these teams test themselves beyond what they ever thought possible.”

“The Fiji course is truly epic. It’s incredibly demanding and will force our competitors far out of

their comfort zone as they race against themselves, their competitors and the fiercest elements

of mother-nature,” said Executive Producer and Host Bear Grylls. “Only the teams that work

together can ever hope of making it to the finish line.”

ARWS- Expedition Oregon

Our first expedition race of 2019 will be a return to Bend, Oregon for a 5-day Championship qualifying race. It will be early in the season and promises to be cold, hard, and technical. Just the way we like it. Except for the cold… we don’t like that very much.
