For the second time in American Ninja Warrior history, the crew and the course took over Monument Circle in Indianapolis, IN. And for the second time, It. Was. Awesome.
Per usual, there’s not much we can tell you at this point. You’ll just have to wait for the episodes to air. But it will be worth it. We’re still reeling from what happened in Indy a few days after the fact!
Indianapolis is a big sports town and the locals eagerly transferred their enthusiasm to American Ninja Warrior. Crowds flooded the stands and basically any available area they could find to watch the action and cheer endlessly long into some very chilly nights.
The Colts’ mascot, Blue came out to get the fans going.
So many top Ninjas, like Jesse Labreck, took on the obstacles.
And just like that, it’s over! So thankful for every opportunity, every experience, and all that came to support us . . . . #americanninjawarrior #indianapolis #indy #monumentcircle #flexlabreck #flex #flexgangi #fitness #motiv8 #inspiration #girlswithmuscle #girlswhoworkout #obstacles #obstaclecourse #motivation #power #strength #strongwomen #strong #fitfam #fitspo

Lorin Ball stepped up to the start line for his TENTH season in a row!
Travis Rosen, as calm and collected as always, enjoyed the sunshine before his run that night.
Thank you Indianapolis, it was real! A great location, great course, great ninjas, & even weather made for an awesome 9th #americanninjawarrior qualifier for me! Missed my usual S.E. ninja family but thankful for new and strengthened relationships with my Midwest ninjas. As always, details can’t be divulged until the episode airs on #nbc this summer but it will be as epic as ever! So grateful to the Lord for nearly a decade of doing this crazy obstacle course show & the impact I’ve been able to make! ♂️ ♂️ @ninjawarrior @nbc @asmithcoprod @adeignco #americanninjawarrior10 #anw10 #anwX #season10 #indianapolis #indy #ninjawarrior #ninja #OGninja #9thQualifier #overcome #neverquit #legacy #goGod #thankyouJesus #influencer #midwest #travisrosen
Indianapolis is a bit unique for American Ninja Warrior. In most cities, the set is kept a little to itself, usually in a location that provides a somewhat controlled environment as far as who can see the course.
But in Indy the show lets it all hang out, so to speak. The course curves around Monument Circle, a location that means buildings above can look down on the course. Fans who didn’t get audience tickets can post up on the other side of the course and still have a view of the action.
This means that fans got pretty special access to the set and some incredible photos came out of it.
#americanninjawarrior back in #indy ! Saw some great contestants/ninja warriors out there tonight, many went up The Wall and onto the second point before . Was great to see it live! #byjamesmichaelphotography @jeckerty @visitindiana @visitindy @american_ninja_warrior_ @adventurenthusiasts @fox59 @wthrcom
The tenth season of American Ninja Warrior kicks off on May 30. The Indianapolis Qualifiers and City Finals will air in the weeks beyond that. Like we said earlier, do NOT miss these historic runs!
