Families in Galway have been encouraged to apply to enter the ninth series of Ireland’s Fittest Family on RTÉ.
The show’s organisers say that the competition will be more challenging than ever before – and the overall winners will walk away with a cash prize of €15,000.
They are scouring the country to find the fittest, fastest and strongest families to be coached to victory by the four returning coaches, Davy Fitzgerald, Anna Geary, Derval O’Rourke and Donncha O’Callaghan.
The O’Rourke family with coach Derval O’Rourke were the last Galway family to take parti in the show, and they made it all the way to the Semi Finals last year in Season 8.
The production will follow HSE’s COVID-19 guidelines to ensure that strict social distancing and health and safety is adhered to throughout the competition by all crew and families taking part.
The minimum age of participants must be 14 years old by 1 July 2021, and each family must be comprised of four immediate members. The series will be filmed between July and September, 2021.
