Ultimate Street Challenge

Ultimate Street Challenge aired on RTE Two back in December 2011.

The show featured ten 16 year olds (five male, five female) from around the country battling it out become the Ultimate Street Challenge Champion. The ten were selected after a nationwide search to find suitable participants for the show.

In each episode, the ten challengers work with personal trainer Karl Henry to build their mental strength, physical fitness and team spirit as well as developing a sense of personal achievement. The teens also take part in strenuous training sessions in urban settings such as Grand Canal Dock’s Chimney Park, Spencer Dock, Point Village, the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, HSQ, Smithfield Square and the beach at Blackrock.

At the end of each episode, the Challengers face an Ultimate Street Challenge set by former world champion super bantamweight boxer Bernard Dunne. These Challenges include abseiling from the roof of the Aviva Stadium, a paddleboard race at Grand Canal Dock, a 2km sprint along the Great South Wall and climbing the towering Wheel of Dublin.

Audrey Dawson was the post production Supervisor.
