After the success of the Survivor series in exotic locales, CBS felt it had to do something different to keep its viewership up. So it turned to LetsRun.com for its newest Survivor Series based on the real lives of professional distance runners.

The concept is quite simple.  Go to 7,000 feet of altitude in Flagstaff, Arizona, cram as many people as possible into a one bedroom apartment (for a diagram of the apartment click here), make them run hundreds of miles a week, give them no money, and find out who is the ultimate survivor. Contrary to what the popular press reported, competition to be one of the final contestants for Survivor Flagstaff was quite intense.  Such distance luminaries as Graham Hood (5th in the World Champs in the 1500m), Anthony Famigletti (2001 US Steeplechase champion), Janko Bensa (Austin Marathon champ, one of the top road runners in the country), Tom Mayo (3:55 Miler From Britain), and Karl Rasmussen (Austin Half-Marathon Champ, 2:14 marathoner) were all seen in Flagstaff before taping, but failed to make the final cut.  In the end, 5 finalists were selected and moved into the one bedroom apartment. Surprisingly to the finalists (but to no one else), none of the applicants for the finals were female.
