In a race that will showcase the hidden attractions of Cebu, participating teams are guaranteed an exhilarating competition that will bring them around 22 towns in the south and midwest of Cebu where they will pit themselves against other teams for the first place cash prize of P50,000.
Dubbed as Lumba’g Laag sa Sugbo, the race promotes experiential tourism highlighting unexplored countryside destinations in the province. It will take place on June 10-12, 2018 starting from Cebu City to the south.
Deadline for registration is May 20, 2018.
“Lumba’g Laag is the race to Cebu’s hidden and unexpected countryside attractions. We encourage corporate employees, local government unit representatives, members of the academe, athletic enthusiasts, tourism stakeholders, and mga laagan to join this year’s race,” said Edilberto Mendoza, Jr., Lumba’g Laag sa Sugbo Chairman and the General Manager of Level Up Events Consultancy.
The race is one of the Cebu Business Month (CBM) 2018 events organized by the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) under the theme “Innovate Cebu”. It is organized in partnership with the Cebu Provincial Government, Department of Tourism, and Habagat Outdoor Equipment.
Golden Prince Hotel & Suites Vice President for Communications Aaron Jeremy Que who serves as Lumba’g Laag sa Sugbo co-chair said that the event is inspired by the Cebu Provincial Government’s tourism event called Suroy-Suroy Sugbo.
“Our goal is to promote and showcase Cebu’s tourism, food, people, culture, and heritage through camaraderie and adventure. Participating teams should familiarize themselves with the culture and products of the towns covered by the race,” he said.
Lumba’g Laag sa Sugbo Awarding will be held at SM Seaside City Cebu on June 13.
