Spartan Week comes to Fort Stewart

Posted: Updated:
FORT STEWART (WTOC) -

Fort Stewart's Second Armored Brigade Combat Team Command Team is hosting Spartan Week.

Competitors have to do 150 pushups and 150 sit ups, endure a one mile run in body armor and fire the M4 rifle, M9 pistol and M500 shotgun in buddy teams during a stress shoot.

Everyone who completes the competition will earn the title of Ultimate Spartan Warrior.

"It's a little bit of friendly fun and competition," said Capt. Caley Longwalter. "Back and forth to build camaraderie among the battalions."

This athletic battle is the last time the Spartan Brigade Warriors will compete together in its entirety before the unit reorganizes later this year.
