For Havaianas and its Havaianaticos, everyday is summer and everyday is the perfect time for fun and excitement under the cool, bright and vibrant radiance of the sun!

Havaianas "Always Summer" Race to Hawaii
The hottest season of the year did not dampen the wild determination and burly toughness of 100 two-member teams as Havaianas, the world’s favorite flip flop brand, kicked off the Havaianas “Always Summer” Race to Hawaii Regional Leg last April 9, 2011 at NBC Tent, Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

One hundred (100) pairs from different parts of the country— 65 teams from Metro Manila and 5 teams each from Northern Luzon, Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, Central and Eastern Visayas, Western Visayas, Northwestern Mindanao and Southeastern Mindanao, who were all drawn online from thousands of contest entries, participated the regional leg.

Teams must complete a total of six summer challenges— comprised of trivia tests and fun games, which were all situated along the venue. The challenges were: Giant Slippers challenge, Fruity Truthy, Freesbie golf, Fashion iSpy, Big bubble challenge and Water Toss. All contestants kept their energy steady with the help of the hydration stations courtesy of Powerade Sports Drink and Viva! Mineral Water.

The team with the best time in the final leg will have the best summer experience ever as they will be sent to Hawaii for an all-expense paid trip!

Team Rosa emerged as the fastest team to complete all the challenges. Ending with a time of 28 minutes and 59 seconds, the proud team from Baguio said their presence of mind during the race strategized well with each other to get into the finals.
