What's the Million Dollar Mile?

In this unprecedented television event series, contestants have the chance to win $1,000,000 every time they run the Million Dollar Mile. Standing in their way is the most challenging course ever designed and a group of 10 elite athletes with one mission: to stop the contestants from winning the money at all costs.

The Defenders are a group of 10 top-ranked international athletes, including a Green Beret and Army Athlete of the Year, the most decorated Obstacle Course Race (OCR) athlete in history, and a two-time Guinness World Record holder for both the farthest and highest wall flips.

"We searched the globe to find the best athletes to defend the Million Dollar Mile. You may not know their names, but you're about to," said Executive Producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan. "These Defenders combine strength and speed with a level of endurance and mental toughness like you've never seen before. They are driven... they don't like to lose and when they are chasing runners down on the streets of Los Angeles it's truly riveting!

The show premieres on CBS this Wednesday, March 27 at 9/8c.
