MARINE CORPS BASE HAWAII KANEOHE (HawaiiNewsNow) - The 17th Annual Swamp Romp took place at Kaneohe Marine Corps Base Saturday. Many teams dress up to trudge through the mud, giant puddles and even a beach run which leads to a quick swim in the ocean.

Four hundred and fifty teams ran the 5 mile race this year. That's about 2,700 racers, Hawaii News Now had a team too. Fire hoses were on hand to spray down the smelly racers at the finish line. At last check the Hawaii News Now team was 52nd overall and 1st in its division with a time of 1:16:42.
