Route Markers

The order of departure from Virgen del Socorro are as follows:

  1. Hayley & Blair
  2. Jelani & Jenny
  3. Laura & Tyler
  4. Mike & Rochelle
Since the previous leg was a No-Rest Leg, teams immediately departed from the Pit Stop to continue racing.

Teams must fly to Dallas, Texas, United States. Upon arrival, teams must make their way to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, where they would find their next clue.

"Who wants to score?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must dress in a Dallas Cowboys uniform, then be harnessed and pulled to the very top of the stadium, where they would collect a football playbook. Once they are back on the ground, they must catch a touchdown pass, then score a field goal to receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to P2 Ranch in Burleson, where they would find their next clue. This is also an elimination point, in which the last team to arrive would be eliminated.

The order when the teams arrived at P2 Ranch was as follows:

  1. Hayley & Blair
  2. Laura & Tyler
  3. Jelani & Jenny
For being the last team to arrive, Mike & Rochelle were eliminated from the Race.

Teams must dress in western hats, shirts, and boots and work with cowboys to herd at least six Texas Longhorn steers into a pen. Once finished, the cowboy would give them their next clue.

Teams must make their way to Reunion Tower, where they would find their next clue.

"Who has a sharp eye?"

The team member who sat out of the previous Roadblock must rappel from the top of Reunion Tower, and spot their next destination, marked with large Race flags, on their way down. Once they have spotted the flags, they may reunite with their partner and make their way to the railroad track shed near the Trinity River, where they would find their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive a monster truck through a series of mud pits to reach several locked sheds, one for each team. They must unlock the shed by using a unique combination which corresponded to the leg number of the name of several places visited during the Race: Kanda Myōjin (Leg 1), Baan Teelanka (Leg 3), Buchhandlung (Leg 8), and Munttoren (Leg 9). Once the shed is unlocked, they would find enlarged prints of several selfies they have taken throughout the Race, which they must attach to a large world map in chronological order from right to left. Once approved, they must drive their monster truck back through the bog course to receive their final clue.

Teams must make their way to Continental Avenue Bridge to cross the Finish Line.
