TABUELAN, Cebu—The third and last day of Lumba’g Laag sa Sugbo 2019 brought in a balance of challenges including making a bibingka (rice cake) and rappeling down a bridge to get the next clue.

The race ended on Sunday, June 23.

Here’s a recap of Day 3 in pictures:

The day started at the San Remigio Public Beach where two tasks were completed: cup stack and fill me in.

For cup stack, racers had to form a pyramid with the cups using only their feet.

Participants also had to fill in a holed bamboo to get their next task.

From Asturias, racers went to the Kool Adventure Camp (KAC) headquarters in the town Balamban. KAC is the flagship leadership and citizenship program of the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) that emphasizes adventure education.

Racers completed the task at the camp. Those who came in early were also treated to a tour, according to Hunat Energy Bar by Ralfe Gourmet Inc. racer Jonathan Dungog.
