It’s a party in the rain for the participants of the Talakudong Festival 2nd Aero-Zumba Marathon Competition.

On September 2, 2016, with fervor and enthusiasm despite the pouring rain, eleven groups from the 40 & up category and forty-one groups from the 39 & below followed the instructors from the Sultan Kudarat State University led by Mr. Wilfredo M. Atayan.

The aerozumba marathon lasted for more than an hour, but despite the odds, the participants, in their colorful outfits and tireless energy, followed every movement to the beat of pop, house, and even contemporary Latin music.

The champion for the 39 & below was the group of Muscle Fitness Gym while the champion for the 40 & up was The Olympian Girls. Each group took home Php5000.00, certificates, and trophies.

There were also special awards including Best in Endurance, Best in Sexy Moves, Best in Ability to Follow, Best in Costume/Outfit, and Mr. and Ms. AeroZumba Marathon 2016 among others.
