It's Okay, Run Them Over! is the penultimate episode of The Amazing Race 5.

Synopsis

The competition heats up as four teams remain in the battle to make it to the finish line.

One team gets lost right out of the Pit Stop and starts fighting with each other. Meanwhile, several racers have to face their fear of heights when a road block forces them to walk across a narrow girder on a suspension bridge high above the waters of the Auckland Harbor in New Zealand. Finally, after 10 legs of the race, one team decides to use the Yield and the team it affects is stunned and furious.[2][3]

Story

Route Markers

The order of departure from Matapara Farms are as follows:

  1. Colin & Christie (4:56 am)
  2. Linda & Karen (6:23 am)
  3. Brandon & Nicole (6:46 am)
  4. Chip & Kim (7:02 am)

Teams must return to Auckland and find the Westhaven Marina where they will find a yacht named Hydroflow to use the marked handles and lower it down to bring their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to take a boat to the Auckland Harbour Bridge and climb a 75-foot ladder to the girders beneath the roadway. From there, they would walk along the girders until they reached the clue on the other side. They are then lowered to a waiting boat below.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams fly to Manila, The Philippines and travel to Imus and find Malagueña Motors to search for their next clue.

At Malagueña Motors, teams have the option to Yield a team. Chip & Kim used the Yield on Colin & Christie.

Teams must decorate a jeepney with attaching items to provide completely. Once it decorated properly, teams will get their next clue.

Teams must take a jeepney to Victoria and find the field by the Giant Duck, a local icon.

Choice A: Plow
Teams would have to choose a marked field and use an ox-drawn plow to till the soil, until the plow caught on a buried rope attached to a hidden clue.

All of the teams chose this task.

Choice B: Fowl
Teams would have to work together and herd 1,000 ducks from one pen to another 50 yards away.

None of the teams chose this task.

Teams must make their way to the Coconut Palace to check in.

For coming in first place, Chip & Kim won a vacation to beautiful Hawaii provided by American Airlines.

For coming last place, Colin & Christie would have to surrender all of their money, and they would not receive any money at the start of the next leg.
