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 32 teams on Sunday more than 800 participants over the weekend were able to enjoy the event! An early rainstorm cool things off and made for the best mud we’ve ever had in the pits. 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. Sunday results were 1st place “Mud Sweat & Beers”, 2nd Place: “The Dirty Spartans”, 3rd place “Sparkle Motion”. Well done to all of you!
