Castaways must race through a series of obstacles, including hay stacks, brick walls, net crawls, etc. Along the way are several checkpoints where keys or balls would need to be collected. The first tribe/team to finish the course wins.
In Nicaragua, the Libertad tribe competed for reward, where the teams were randomly drawn coincidentally, they ended up as men vs. women. The all-male team consisting of Benry Henry, Dan Lembo, Fabio Birza, Marty Piombo, and Sash Lenahan won in a close race, winning reward.

"It Don't Take a Smart One"
- In Survivor: Nicaragua, the final 11 (six men and five women) were randomly split up into two teams of 5 (with one person, Chase Rice, sitting out) and the rival teams were men vs. women). The odds of that exact configuration occurring randomly are 1 in 231, or roughly 0.4%.
- Each team that won this challenge had the eventual winner, second runner-up, and 5th-place finisher.
