On the 2 April 2011 the National Trust Heritage Festival 2011 was launched with the Amazing Race. The East Maitland Kiwanis organised the Amazing Race to raise funds for our University Foundation's Vera Deacon Regional History Fund and Lifeline.
Teams solved clever clues and face fun challenges while navigating the urban Newcastle landscape on foot. It was a scavenger hunt, with all the thrills of the amazing race, mixed with trivial pursuit and a dash of cat-and-mouse.
We sincerely thank all the organisers and competitors on the day. Especially the winning teams: Anthony and his friends, The Amazing Face and the Family. We also thank the sentimental favourites, The Bio Wizards, The Where's Wallys and The Robert Smiths. We love you all!
