After nine epic days of traveling to six cities – Kuala Lumpur, Bacolod, Cebu, Camiguin, Cagayan de Oro and Manila – and facing challenges that would test their physical fortitude and mentally strength while at the same time having fun, the five teams are back to culminate the exciting Juan For Fun Backpacking Challenge this 2014. Aside from travelling for free for nine days and using items from major sponsore, the teams get to take home special prizes depending on their rankings. And here are the winners.
Based on the points from various challenges (ie, the most activities a team accomplished on a certain budget, winning first on team obstacles challenges, etc) in different destinations, the points were summed up to get the overall scores. And in the the end the UP Diliman laden and Physics major team of Esme Escoto, Floyed Patricio and Gab Sapliagio of Team Tuklas, coached by Paolo Abrera emerged as the grand winners. They have won 12 (4 each member) local or international round trip tickets, a Canon camera, and more items from their sponsors like Vaude and Merrel. In the meantime here’s the final rankings:
