Rhino Van Dam has a good solution here, but I just unlocked this achievement and I'd like to add some advice.

First, you can use a couple of gadgets to make your life easier. I used the Turbo Boost and Dezapinator gadgets - the final two in the gadget stash. Turbo Boost causes boost rings to appear every now and then while you're playing. When you hit a boost ring, all the obstacles for a couple hundred meters are destroyed. This can save you a lot of trouble towards the end of 5000m. The Dezapinator causes the yellow zapper links to randomly fail about 10% of the time. This can also save you in case you can't maneuver out of the way in time.

Second, try and make sure to hit every single vehicle token you come across. They effectively reset the difficulty for a few hundred meters and give you an extra hit before you die.

I don't recommend using the Head Start items. When I used them I often found the change of pace when they wear off is jarring and caused me to die very quickly. I found it much easier to start at 0 and take my time.

Last advice echoes what Rhino said. Try and catch spin tokens, if possible. With luck you'll spin a revive or blast. Bring a Revive and Final Blast and use them only if you get pretty close to 4000m or so.

Good luck - this one is pretty tough!
MuscularTeanever knew that Turbo boost did that. Soon as I used that gadget I got past 5000 without using revive or final blast. AWESOME!

StyxBoatmanFor the "kick me out and restart" guys. I had the same issue and I had the Music and Sound turned off. If you have one or both turned off try turning it back on. Also, I had my Messenger window docked on the side, I undocked it and played Full Screen. Good luck!

Epic LouieCheers for the guide. It was the last achievement I needed and I finally unlocked it.

VictimOfDesireDidn't think the Dezapinator was going to be useful, but sure enough, the very first run with it equipped, I got over 5500 M. And I didn't buy any blasts or revives either. +1

C JittersI recommend using a mouse ;)
It react better and faster than the usual mouse pad.

SaltyTONGot it with nothing equipped bar the Lucky Last... got to near the end and got a Large Blast with my last spin to get me over the 5km line.

I did it using the mouse as well... got it before I've got the damn dog achievement!

DRedWingsDJYThumbs up to Boingoing and SaltyTON. I had a run stop at 4950m. Plugged in the mouse and got ~5100 a couple runs later.
