aQuellé Richmond Mudman

The 15th of April was the aQuelle Richmond Mudman - the final in the Mudman series and also the first to be hosted by Richmond Primary School. What a beautiful day we had in store for us all.

With some organized planning our team of committee members and many parents, staff and community members assembled in the bracingly fresh but beautiful dawn. The Beaulieu Dam waters were quietly lapping at the edge of the dam and the brightly coloured orange and blue banners of aQuelle - our main sponsors - were flapping in the background.

As participants and spectators started arriving at the magnificent surroundings of Beaulieu Dam and prepared for their races, the organizing committee and helpers set to work in the culmination of many meetings and much planning to create an event worthy of the prestigious Mudman series.

The first race - the full distance started off with a bang, closely followed by the half distance event. Overall winner for the ladies was again Su Don-Wauchope and for the men, Tyronne White. Well done to the both of you and also to each and everyone who participated. We had 740 participants including the Mudskippers and the day was spent happily with family and friends in the dappled shade of the trees. The Mudskippers event was a huge hit and enjoyed by all ages. We had many excited and energetic children participating with big smiles. The slip and slide was most popular and even some of the parents took the journey - showing their fun side and getting into the vibe of what the Mudman is all about - FUN and FAMILY.

Overall the day was a huge success, but without the generous sponsorship from our sponsors this would have been a difficult feat to produce. Our sincere thanks go out to all those who sponsored our event. Special thanks to our series and title sponsors - aQuelle. We thank them for their wonderful support on the day. Many other companies and individuals donated. Thank you - we are truly grateful to everyone for their support and generosity.

We hope all those who joined us had a thoroughly great day and we hope to see you all and many more next year in the aQuelle Richmond Mudman.
