The Bullrun Reality Show
The Bullrun Reality show is an American TV show following 12 teams of two drivers in an elimination game show format. Each day the drivers are given a route card that tells them where to go next. They encounter a series of checkpoints before ending the day at the final destination. Teams are not allowed any form of electronic navigational aid - and are forced to read maps to find their way through the back-roads of America to their next checkpoint. At the end of each driving leg, teams are faced with an explosive adrenaline pumping challenge in which three teams must battle it out for survival. The two slowest teams from the driving leg are automatically in the challenge. The third team is chosen by the day's driving leg winner. At the end of the challenge, the team with the slowest time is eliminated from the show.
Season 1 of the reality show was featured on MTV network's Spike TV. This seasoon featured a different show format. Each day started out with a driving leg which brought teams to the mid-day checkpoint. At the checkpoint, teams encountered an explosive challenge. The first two teams to arrive at the mid-day checkpoint chose two teams each to battle it out in the challenge - ranging from chasing down a flaming bus, to navigating an obsticle course in a parking garage. Teams swapped their official times for the driving leg depending on their placing in the challenge. Teams then made their way to the fnal checkpoint of the day - where the team with the slowest overall driving time was promptly eliminated.
Seasons 2 and 3 were featured on FOX network; SPEEDtv, with a fourth season in the works.
The Bullrun reality television series and Bullrun live rallies are two different entities.
