The dawn of the aQuellé Epworth Mudman on Sunday 26th February 2012 was so misty that many people drove straight past the Albert Falls turnoff from the R33. For anyone who has lived in the Midlands for any length of time, they will know that thick mist at this time of the year means one thing - a hot, hot day ahead; and it was an exceptionally hot day.  The lack of mud meant some very fast times from the top athletes, the event being won by Iain Don-Wauchope  in the Mens overall category in a time of 01:11:02 and by Su Don-Wauchope in the Ladies overall category in a time of  01:20:03. Abigail Don-Wauchope in the Spur Mudskipper Adventure Blue race epitomized what the aQuellé Mudman series is all about - a fun filled family day!

The 1167 athletes were thrilled to receive their ice cold aQuellé at the end of their run before heading off into the inviting waters of the dam for a leisurely "paddle" to cool down and get the dust off. Then came the turn of the Mudskippers, always a delightful part of the afternoon, the 287 budding multi -sporters were equally pleased with Spur Goodie bags at the end of their  Spur Adventure race and with shoulders, back and chins held high they sported their medals with pride.
