The Hermannsburg Mudman 2018 Effect!
Did you turn into a Mudman (or Mudwoman) at the 19th aQuellé Hermannsburg Mudman on Saturday 3 February 2018?
Hermannsburg Mudman 2018 at Deutsche Schule Hermannsburg lived up to its name, yet again, delivering loads of mud and fun for the whole family.
Athletes appreciated the cool weather, as young and old joined in with gusto. This year saw a growth in support for the morning’s Mudskipper events, showing that Hermannsburg Mudman is one for the whole family.
The corporate challenge and the schools’ challenge were fiercely contested, thanks to all the companies and schools that supported Hermannsburg Mudman 2018, especially Hoërskool Voortrekker and Greytown High School.
