The Amazing Race en Discovery Channel 1 (English: The Amazing Race on Discovery Channel) is a reality television game show of The Amazing Race (Latin America). The race was produced by RGB Entertainment. The host of the show is Harris Whitbeck. The Amazing Race en Discovery Channel 1 premiered on Sunday 20 September 2009 at 10:00 p.m.(UTC-5). The season finale was aired on 13 December 2009 at 10:00 p.m. (UTC-5).
Argentinian Married Couple Matías & Tamara were the winners of this race.
Discovery Channel greenlit the first installment on November 2008.
Filming for The Amazing Race en Discovery Channel 1 lasted for 23 days and covered nearly 14,600 km. The first season spanned nine countries in two continents. This season marked a first time visit by any race franchise outside of the American edition to visit North America. Among them, 7 have been visited by the original American version, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama and Peru. Colombia and the Dominican Republic have never been visited in the American version.
The route markers in this season were colored blue and black, including the clue envelopes and the Pit Stop. Also different from other editions is the fact that the opening shows the teams' country of origin. There were only two teams present at the Finish Line in Mexico; specifically the Mexican teams (Casilda & Casilda and Guillermo & Gabriel).

- A red team placement indicates that the team was eliminated.
- A green ƒ and team placement indicates that the team won a Fast Forward clue.
- An underlined blue team placement indicates that the team came in last on a non-elimination leg and had to perform a Speed Bump in the next leg of the race.
- A yellow > indicates that the team chose to use the Yield; < indicates the team who received it; <> around a leg number indicates that the Yield for that leg was available but not used.
- A brown ⊃ indicates that the team chose to use a U-Turn; ⊂ indicates the team who received it.
- Italicized results indicate the position of the team at the midpoint of a two-episode leg.
- Ariel & Nora initially arrived 3rd, but they received a 4-hour penalty for refusing to complete the Speed Bump, dropping their placement to 11th, which resulted them being eliminated.
- Diego & Miguel and Mario & Melissa received 1-hour penalty each team for not completing an additional task. Since neither placements were affected, Diego & Miguel were able to check in as 7th and the start of the penalty time would instead be accessed in the next leg, and Mario & Mellisa were eliminated without issuing the penalty.
- Casilda & Casilda arrived 2nd, but received 1-hour penalty for doing the option not chosen by them on the Detour. All the other teams checked in during the penalty hour, dropping their placement to last; however they were notified as a non-elimination leg, thus the remaining penalty time would be accessed at the start of the next leg.
- Casilda & Casilda didn't complete the Roadblock. Already in last place, they were eliminated immediately without correcting the roadblock or accessed the 4-hour penalty.
- On Leg 10, Daniel & David and Daniel & Carlos arrived at the same time at the pit stop, both tied in 2nd place.
- Leg 12 was a double-length leg with two Detours and two Roadblocks and was shown over two episodes. In the first half, Daniel & David arrived first at the midpoint and won prizes.
