Put your knowledge of downtown Tacoma to the test during the City of Tacoma’s Amazing Preservation Race in May.
Participants will race across downtown Tacoma completing fun challenges as they learn about the city’s historic and cultural resources.
“The Amazing Preservation Race is a great way to experience Tacoma’s walkable historic downtown and its many unique spaces and places,” said City of Tacoma historic preservation officer Reuben McKnight. “It is exciting to see so many local partners coming together to create this event showcasing Tacoma’s character.”
The event will be held at 11 a.m. on Sat., May 9, in Tollefson Plaza, located at South 17th Street and Pacific Avenue, and end in Wright Park, located at 501 S. “I” St. Registration is $50 for a team of up to four people and includes T-shirts designed by ETC Tacoma. Every team will receive a mystery goodie bag provided by the event partners, but only the top three teams will receive a grand prize. Register online here.
