Ten years after the hit TV show Friday Night Lights premiered, some of your favorite cast members — Taylor Kitsch, Minka Kelly, Zach Gilford and Aimee Teegarden – are reuniting to race as part of Marriott Rewards sponsorship of Spartan Race worldwide. As the official Global Hotel Partner of Spartan Race, Marriott Rewards is offering obstacle course race devotees exclusive, member only tips, perks and benefits to fuel their training and completion of challenging Spartan Races. Marriott Rewards is also offering members a once-in-a-lifetime chance to follow the Friday Night Lights cast members’ training, and race alongside them on June 11.“Passionate communities are perhaps the ultimate examples of loyalty. We admire how well Spartan Race has built one of the most adventurous and enthusiastic fan-bases that exists,” said Thom Kozik, Vice President Loyalty, Marriott International. “Bringing Spartan Race competitors the benefits of Marriott Rewards as they train, travel, and race all around the world is the most exciting part of our partnership. Having the cast members of Friday Night Lights join this devoted tribe and provide them, and our members with exclusive Spartan-related benefits is Marriott’s way of showing our loyalty on their journey towards the finish line.
The cast members from Friday Night Lights are teaming with Marriott Rewards members for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to run together in a challenging eight to ten-mile, Spartan Super packed with more than 25 signature Spartan obstacles, being held outside of Chicago on Saturday, June 11. More information on how to receive a chance to race alongside the cast members will be posted on Marriott Rewards Insiders.
Taylor Kitsch, who played Tim Riggins on the show said “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.”
