The Bakasyunan Resort, located in Tanay, Rizal, is a one-stop mountain adventure getaway just in the fringe of the metro.

This is where we brought some members of the Philippine Football and Philippine Futsal teams for a Sports Unlimited day out – the Philippine Azkals’ Paolo Pascual, twins Marvin and Marwin Angeles, Demitrius Omphroy, Ace Bright and Jeffrey Christiaens; and the Philippine Muzangs' Romeu Rodrigues, Mel Macasaquit and Stephanie Dan.

The athletes were all eager to join a fun-filled day full of games, action and adventures. First activity was the giant inflatable raft race.

Marc led the Team Shirts Off while Dyan headed the Team Shirts On. Dyan started planning their strategy with her team but it didn’t take long for Marc and his Team Shirts Off to distract Dyan.

One rule was that everyone should be on board the giant inflatable raft when they reach the finish line. Marc and his team, though, had a different interpretation of the game guidelines. As soon as they got the go signal, they simply jumped off their inflatable raft and pushed it to the finish line while Dyan’s team tried furiously to paddle with all their might.

It didn’t take long before Marc’s team toppled Dyan’s team off their inflatable raft. They were all in the water, fighting their way to the finish line. It was a photo finish for both teams as they all tried to make their way to the top. Both teams declared themselves the winners of the race.

After the race in the pool, it was time to get down and dirty with Bakasyunan Resort’s mud slide.

The athletes couldn't help but unleash their wild side. What's better than sliding down the tarp? The big muddy splash when you get to the bottom of the mud slide!

The daredevils ran, tumbled, slipped and slid until sun down.
