Subaru PH has concluded the 2015 Palm Challenge Philippine Face-off with its final leg held at the Bonifacio High Street in Bonifacio Global City last September 5.
According to Subaru PH, the 2015 Palm Challenge Philippine Face-off had over 300 registrants featuring a mix of young and old that ranged from the youngest who was 18 and the oldest at 69.
Experienced and familiar faces joined this year's Palm Challenge including 7-time winner Alex Neblasca, who proved to be the toughest of the lot. He outlasted all of the other participants, finishing with a time of 13 hours 9 minutes and 33 seconds.
Neblasca won PhP 20,000 and exclusive Subaru merchandise. Furthermore, Neblasca also had the longest time among all leg winners which gives him the privilege to bring a plus one during the Singapore regional challenge.
The winners from Cebu (Donn Michael-Yap) and Davao (Gilber Hamo-ay) will now be joined by the top eight winners from Manila for the Regional Finals in November at Singapore.
