Always on the Run (1 of 2) Reward Challenge | Survivor: Ghost Island S36E12: Always Be Moving
The castaways will be divided into three teams of two. They must place a wooden spool onto a track, which will roll to the bottom of the structure where one castaway must grab it and place it back onto the track. At regular intervals, more spools will be added, making it more difficult. If a spool drops, the team is out of the challenge. The last team left standing wins reward.
Reward: Delivering supplies to a local Fijian school, along with a meal of fried chicken and chocolate cake.

Always Be Moving is the penultimate episode of Survivor: Ghost Island.
Challenge: Always on the Run
Winner: Purple Team (Domenick Abbate and Wendell Holland) (shared with Laurel Johnson; sent Sebastian Noel to Ghost Island)
Simmotion (also known as Always on the Run) is a recurring individual challenge that originated in Survivor: Tocantins, and reappeared in South Pacific, Cambodia, Ghost Island, David vs. Goliath, and Winners at War. The challenge requires strong mental focus and endurance.
Each castaway, usually with one hand tied behind their back, must drop a ball into a metal chute. The ball will travel down a spiraling metal track and exit out of one of two points (a turnstile gate in the middle of the track causes the balls to come out at alternate exits). The castaway must catch the ball and drop it back into the chute at the top. At designated intervals, an additional ball is added to the track until the maximum amount of balls are simultaneously in play. If a ball exits the track and is not caught at any time, the castaway is eliminated from the challenge. The last person standing wins.
In Ghost Island, the challenge was modified to be used as a team challenge. The metal track was replaced with large wooden cascading beams, and the balls were replaced with large spools which would roll down the track. One member would mount the spool on one end, while the other member catches. The members of the pair will alternate tasks. This version of the challenge is significantly more physically demanding as the challenge setup is significantly larger than the original, requiring players to run from one end to the other.
The challenge debuted in Tocantins as the Final Immunity Challenge, with a maximum of eight balls. Erinn Lobdell was the first to drop out on her third ball. The challenge came down to Thomas and Stephen Fishbach, with Stephen dropping on his fourth ball, giving immunity.
In South Pacific, the challenge was used as a Redemption Island duel between Christine Shields Markoski and Stacey Powell, with a maximum of six balls. Unlike other iterations of the individual version of this challenge, both castaways were allowed to use both their hands. Christine's strategy of spacing out when to drop her balls ultimately allowed her to win after Stacey dropped on her third ball, permanently eliminating Stacey.
In Cambodia, the challenge was once again used as the Final Immunity Challenge, with a maximum of seven balls. Kelley Wentworth dropped out first, followed by Tasha Fox, both dropping on their fourth ball. It ultimately came down to Jeremy Collins and Spencer Bledsoe, with Spencer dropping on his fifth ball, giving Jeremy immunity.
In Ghost Island, the challenge appeared as the final seven Reward Challenge. Castaways were divided into three teams of two, with Angela Perkins sitting out with no shot at reward. Each team managed to get all five spools rolling at once, but the purple team of Domenick Abbate and Wendell Holland ultimately outlasted the other two teams to reward.
In David vs. Goliath, the challenge again appeared as the Final Immunity Challenge, with a maximum of seven balls. Angelina Keeley dropped out first, followed by Mike White, both dropping on their third ball. The challenge came down to Kara Kay and Nick Wilson, with Kara dropping just before adding her fourth ball, giving Nick immunity.
In Winners at War, the challenge appeared as the Final Immunity Challenge once again, with a maximum of seven balls. Tony Vlachos was the first to drop out on his third ball, followed by Sarah Lacina on her fourth ball. The challenge ultimately came down to Michele Fitzgerald and Natalie Anderson, with Michele dropping on her fifth ball, giving Natalie immunity.
