The Gig Harbor Street Scramble returns to Skansie Brothers Park in downtown Gig Harbor at 10 a.m. May 23. It is the largest street scramble in North America and the only free scramble in the greater Puget Sound region.
The event is free, but preregistration is encouraged. The first 200 people to register receive a shirt. Registration will be available at the event, but no shirt is guaranteed.
The Gig Harbor Street Scramble is a treasure hunt throughout the community directing participants to 30 locations on a map. There are 30 checkpoints circled on a map and each checkpoint has a description such as “sculpture” or “road bend.” Scramblers visit the checkpoints in any order on foot or bike. Motorized vehicles are not allowed for the event.
Participants will have to answer questions specific to a landmark in order to prove they visited the stop. After returning to the finish line, there will be entertainment, refreshments and awards.
To register, pick up a brochure at the Tom Taylor Family YMCA, the Visitor Information Center at the Historic Skansie House at Skansie Brothers Park, the Gig Harbor Visitor Information Center at the Chamber of Commerce or online at ymcapkc.org/streetscramble.
