The Amazing Race

amazing race topic page

The reality adventure competition The Amazing Race premiered in 2001 and follows teams of two as they race around the world as they complete tasks and navigate foreign locations to make it to the designated pitstops.

At the end of every episode, the last team to arrive at the pitstop is eliminated until there are three teams left in the finale. The first team to reach the finish line wins the grand prize: $1 million.

Over the course of the race, teams must find route markers with clues that include route information, detours, roadblocks, and fast-forward. There may also be obstacles such as U-Turn and Hazard.

The Amazing Race has won 10 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program. There have also been several international spinoffs including The Amazing Race Asia, The Amazing Race Canada, and The Amazing Race: China Rush.
