The trio was victorious in their first round, but all 15 teams in the finals will have to start from scratch on the leader board in their bid for one of 10 grand final berths.

The teams will take on a longer and tougher course featuring two new obstacles. For the Speed Links, the teams must traverse a series of rings suspended over a pool without ever touching the water.

In the 21-metre long Ultimate Water Gauntlet, they must navigate a series of wet obstacles before finishing with a five-metre underwater swim.

Then there are the returning obstacles viewers are already familiar with, including the Tilting Bridge, the Slip Face and the Leap of Faith.

Australian Spartan airs on Sunday at 7pm and Monday at 7.30pm on Channel 7.
