Cebu Pacific’s Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge is back for the sixth year in a row and on its biggest run yet! At stake is an unlimited, travel-all-you-can pass to any of Cebu Pacific’s domestic or international short haul destinations for one whole year.
Presented by Cebu Pacific, the Philippines’ leading carrier, the annual Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge brings teams of young adventurers on a race of a lifetime across some of the country’s exciting travel destinations.

They are coached by YouTube vlogger Wil Dasovich, Becoming Filipino’s Kyle “Kulas” Jennermann, Beautiful Destination Social Media Strategist Ren Sapitan, international blogger Sabrina Iovino of JustOnewayTIcket.com, and travel writer Jude Bacalso.
