Race to the Finish (Part 2) is the season finale of The Amazing Race 1.

Synopsis

As they complete their journey around the world, the final three teams race to reach the finish line first and win the $1 million prize. Separated only by minutes, the race comes down to an all-out dash through Alaska to the finish line in New York City.[2]

Story

Route Markers

The order of departure from the Wilderness Cabin are as follows:

Teams must follow a trail with yellow flags to the Takosha Lodge where they will find their next clue.

Choice A: Dog Power
Teams have to ride dogsleds across an 11 mile course, guide their dogs along a marked path to reach their next clue and a vehicle they could use.

All of the teams chose this task.

Choice B: Horsepower
Teams will have to maneuver a much-faster snowmobile to the same marked path, but their course is three times as long.

None of the teams chose this task.

Joe & Bill were no longer required to perform this task as Rob & Brennan already reached the Finish Line when they were just about to perform the Detour.

Teams must drive themselves to Fish Lake for their next clue.

One team member will strip to his swimwear and dive in the freezing cold water to retrieve their next clue.

Joe & Bill were no longer required to perform this task as Rob & Brennan already reached the Finish Line when they were just about to perform the Detour.

Teams must fly back where the race started: New York City. They will have to go to Vincent Daniels Square in Queens (Frank & Margarita's hometown) to get their final clue.

In this final clue, the teams must race to the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Park, the Finish Line of the Race.
