Star Movies triathlon winners

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - The third staging of the movie-marathon endurance challenge Star Movies Triathlon saw five winners sharing the coveted title. An interesting mix of yuppies and students won over the contest made more difficult as two other types of endurance challenges were added apart from the movie marathon itself. 

The winners were Ria Hernandez, a 28-year-old interior designer; Cathleen Anderson, a restaurant owner in her early 20s; students Natalia Ortega and Dominic Cruz; and another young movie buff Lesly Yiu. 

All five survived the triathlon staged at the Newport Cinema 3 last Oct. 18. They outlasted the rest of the 200 participants. 

Classic movies like Casablanca and Apocalypse Now were shown during the 16-straight hours of movie-watching under exceptionally strict rules that included no standing, no phone calls, no sleeping and no bathroom breaks. The two other challenges were circuit training and yoga poses. 

The final nine were all given flat TVs as additional prize before they were led to the surprise “sudden death round” of exercise biking and treadmill run while glued to the big screen for the last stretch to determine the official winners. 

Winners won P150,000 as cash prize.
