University of Pretoria Campus Tours hosted an "Amazing Race" themed event to celebrate Heritage Week at the University of Pretoria by acknowledging our South African Heritage on Campus.

We celebrated the event on 25th September 2014, with the South African Rainbow Nation - with 20 years of Democracy in 2014. The Heritage Race highlighted Heritage week at the University of Pretoria in a spectacular way; we revealed some of the most valuable Heritage we have on campus that has developed over more than a century, appropriately timed during Heritage week.

This A-MAZE-ING Race was run whereby 30 teams (in groups of 2), had to figure out clues about the campus in order to complete the race.

A-MAZE-ING Prizes were sponsored by Enterprises at University of Pretoria Trust (E at UP), Tuks FM and the UP Archives.
