Eight teams will see if they have what it takes to survive the extremes of the Alaskan wilderness on USA Network's newest original series, "Race To Survive: Alaska."

How to Watch

Catch up with Race to Survive: Alaska on the USA Network app.

Teams of two composed of the best of the best in endurance racing, primitive survival skills, and bushcraft will be tested in ways they never anticipated in the brand new competition series premiering Monday, April 3 at 11 p.m. ET/PT with a supersized episode that will follow WWE's Monday Night RAW

In this first-look trailer, the teams endure the worst the remote and untamed Aleutian Alaskan islands have to offer as they dig deep to compete against one another for the coveted $500,000 prize.

Over the course of 40 days and six races, each team will have to hike, climb, swim, kayak, and more through 100 miles of the world's most inhospitable terrain without food, water, or a charted path. The last teams to make it to the finish line of each of the six races will be eliminated, making the competition fierce, and the risks unparalleled. If the terrain or wildlife doesn't slow them down, backstabbing from their fellow contestants just might.

On "Race To Survive: Alaska," winning is the goal, but survival is the challenge.

The eight teams feature exciting and diverse competitors from all corners of the United States including a father-son duo, mentor-mentees, couples, siblings, and friends both new and old. All of them share some background in the kind of daring survival tactics that will be put to the test throughout their journey.
