The Megaleg is a "double-length leg" containing double the number of Detours and Roadblocks, as well as double the distance, shown over two episodes. Unlike a Superleg, however, a Megaleg lacks a proper midpoint and does not have a rest period incorporated into its design.

Overview[]

The Megaleg was introduced in The Amazing Race 32, with host Phil Keoghan informing teams at the end of the seventh leg that the following leg would be a Megaleg. Keoghan explained the concept to the teams as encountering twice as many Detours and Roadblocks, traveled over double the distance that teams normally would.

Unlike Superlegs, the Megaleg does not have a proper midpoint. Instead, teams are given an ordinary Route Information clue at the end of the first set of tasks merely stating that "the megaleg continues". For the audience, a distinction is created with each set of tasks being covered in its own episode.

The Amazing Race Canada 9 was the first international version to feature a Megaleg.
