Street Scramble Gig Harbor

Calendar/Event Details

90 minutes or 3-hours.
On foot or bike.
Street Scramble Gig Harbor is the most popular Street Scramble of the year! Part of its popularity is likely due to the fact that Tom Taylor Family YMCA supports the event in order to make it FREE to all participants (yes, this Street Scramble is FREE!). But, part of its popularity is surely the allure of the beautiful maritime city of Gig Harbor.

On the shores of Puget Sound, fifty minutes south of Seattle, Gig Harbor offers waterfront parks, harbors filled with sailboats, an incredible view of Mt.Rainier, and cozy small town appeal. In fact, Gig Harbor has its small town appeal so dialed in, that Smithsonian Magazine named Gig Harbor one of the best small towns in the United States!

The Y is once again offering a free event T-shirt to the first 200 people to register, so don’t delay! While the T-shirts will likely be spoken for already by event day, it is still perfectly fine to register on the morning of the event.

What is Street Scramble? It’s an urban adventure that’s fun for runners, walkers, and families! Dozens of checkpoints are marked on a special map and your goal is to find as many as you can within the time limit. Whether you sprint or stroll is up to you! You can participate solo or in teams of 2-5. More details on website.

Wear whatever feels appropriate for the weather and the exertion level you plan. Some participants adventure in their street clothes while others wear breathable running apparel. Whatever you choose to wear, comfortable footwear is essential if you are going out on foot.

Everyone should bring the following:

A watch, so you’ll know when to dash back to the finish
Highlighters or other writing utensils for marking the answer sheet and planning your route
