The 6th Annual America II Extreme Mud Wars at Spa Beach park in downtown St. Pete was another huge success this year! Selling out at 48 teams on Saturday more than 800 participants over the weekend were able to enjoy the event! It was near perfect weather for a muddy good time over the weekend with lots of sun, a breeze coming off of Tampa Bay. Teams went head to head and against each other for time in the 8 mud & water packed events which exhausted, exhilarated, and ultimately vindicated the championship teams. Whether you displayed your speed at obstacle course or your team work at dodgeball, this contest truly had it all with a variety of challenges. Congratulations to the winning teams who placed in this highly competitive event. Saturday results were 1st place “TQL # 1”, 2nd Place: “City Quest Races”, 3rd place “Chicks & Sticks”. Well done to all of you!
