IT started in Hermannsburg 18 years ago – KZN’s first Mudman - an off-road multi-sport event with running, swimming, canoeing and cycling. The Hermannsburg Mudman is organised and run by the staff, parents and pupils, which not only builds up school spirit but is also a fund-raiser. aQuellé hosts the four race series in February, March and April each year. The series include a 750m swim or four kilometre paddle, a 20km bike ride and five kilometre trail run. aQuellé Mudman starts the 2017 series at Hermannsburg this Saturday 4 February.
