From start to finish, Smoke Eaters kept a steady pacing slipping past through the zombies while battling through other teams and the rainy weather. They made the course look easy as they worked as a team to get each person past each obstacle and while avoiding being turned into a zombie.

Aside from the countless obstacles along the path, Smoke Eaters maintained a safe distance from the rest of the teams and made their way through to the finish line where they clocked in a time of 01:38:35 to claim the title of Enduro Team Winner.

As for the Business division it was Triple J (A) that triumphed completing the course at a quick time of 00:38:24 to claim the first place title. The zombies made it hard enough to get by but Triple J were sneaky enough to avoid the zombies to beat the top contender Gold’s Gym.

Gold’s Gym B made their way each obstacle without a sweat as their daily workouts proved how easy it was for them to get by but a few setbacks caused them to linger behind settling for second place with a finish time of 00:36:21.

Duty Free Shopping also made the list as their athleticism paid off. Although a few turned into zombies, they were quick to grab a flag and recover their humanity to finish the race at third place with a time of 00:39:54.

Aside from the team-based awards, Joshua Monglona proved that you could survive a zombie apocalypse alone, you just have to be quiet and smart enough to avoid the zombies and finish each obstacle.

Monglona’s quick feet kept him safe from the horde while he had no problem traversing though each obstacle to grasp the photo finish at a time of 00:53:26.

The full results will be posted at a later edition of Marianas Variety. You could also view the full results in which will be posted soon.
