In the spirit of camaraderie, a race through time

Of the 5 participating teams, the Engineering students of Cebu Institute of Technology University (CIT-U) arrived 1st, followed by the joint team of Cebu Normal University (CNU) and Saint Paul University Dumaguete (SPUD), and ranking third to arrive is Velez College.  The event ended with smiles on everyone’s faces and new friendships created among the participants.  Announcement and awarding of the three winning groups of the Amazing Race will be done during the closing ceremony on May 09, 2018.
