A team member must properly learn to wrap their hand with what appears to be some type of gauze, work on a punching bag and with a trainer before they get their next clue.
Never miss a local story.
Chad and Stephanie arrive in second place. Katie and Rachel are third. In the meantime, the first place team is on to the jump rope, which they quickly finish.
Now, they travel to a supply depot in search of their next clue.
Nat and Kat are in seventh place and are just getting in their taxi. Nick and Vicki are in eighth place. Gary and Mallory are in last place.
Conner and Jonathan quickly finished their boxing task and are in fourth place. Nat and Kat, meanwhile, need to go back and are with a taxi driver who refuses to turn around.
Michael and Kevin are now in fifth place after finishing the boxing task. Gary and Mallory are now in sixth place. Nick and Vicki are seventh place. Nat and Kat finally make it to the boxing academy and begin their task.
Conner and Jonathan manage to pass Brook and Claire while on the road. The singers get to the depot first, and learn their next task:
The must load certain supplies in a wheelbarrow, take it to a specific person and if they've brought everything needed, then they get their next clue.
Conner and Jonathan get it right on the first try and learn their next task:
Teams will enter a village classroom and be tested on African geography. They must place country names on a map of Africa in order to get their next clue.
After a few tries, they correctly label Ghana and go to the next task: Bicycle Parts or Language Arts. In Bicycle Parts, teams must use a stick to roll a bicycle rim down a soccer field and back without it falling. In Language Arts, they must find a proverb that's written in symbols on a massive wall covered in various symbols.
Connor and Jonathan choose Language Arts. They finish their task first, get the clue and learn they must go to the home of Awusa Ntso - the Pit Stop for this leg of the race.
Moments later, Connor and Jonathan arrive in first place. They win $5,000 each that they can spend after the race.
Many of the other teams are neck and neck, pushing wheelbarrows while Nat and Kat are still having problems getting to the next stage.

Nat and Kat finally make it to the wheelbarrows.
