Their much-loved show "Friday Night Lights" went dark in 2011. Now, four of the cast members are reuniting to run a Spartan race sponsored by Marriott Rewards on June 11 in Chicago.

Yes, we're talking about Taylor Kitsch, Minka Kelly, Zach Gilford and Aimee Teegarden, who will get down and dirty together. So, if we're placing bets, who's gonna win? ​(See an interview with Alicia Witt, who also appeared on the show as Cheryl, above).

"I would say as much as I would love to see all girl power, I think that either Taylor or Zach will rip through it. We're running as a team. We'll get through the obstacles together," says Teegarden.

On the show, Teegarden played Julie Taylor, the oldest daughter of Eric and Tami Taylor (Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton). She found her happily ever after with football player-turned-artist Matt (Zach Gilford). And the Marriott competition seemed to her an ideal way to reunite with her TV family.

"I feel like everyone is so busy. It's hard to catch up and stay in touch but with Marriot Rewards putting this reunion together it will be nice to catch up. I'm really looking forward to being really united as a team and being supportive and seeing each other," she says.

Her training regimen is no joke. The race is filled with more than 25 signature Spartan obstacles.

"We've been set up with athletes to do all the training. It's been a lot of training with Spartan trainers, how to throw a spear and do a barbed wire crawl. It's been a lot and we're working really hard. I'm excited to get out there and get muddy," says Teegarden.

She's not a pro quite yet. "Well, I'm learning how to throw a spear. It's like throwing darts on a much bigger scale, it's a full-on full-body obstacle course with a huge run attached to it. I'm a very active person," she says.

In other news, Teegarden is also headlining a new show this fall on ABC. "Notorious" is on "right after 'Grey's Anatomy.' I play Ella, an associate at a law firm and I'm a protégé lawyer. She's very smart and sassy. She has a darker past we'll get to explore," says Teegarden.
