Gig Harbor, Wash. April 22nd, 2015 - The Gig Harbor Street Scramble returns to Skansie Brothers Park (3207 Harborview Drive) in downtown Gig Harbor on Saturday, May 23rd beginning at 10am. This free, family event marks the official kick-off for summer and outdoor fun in Gig Harbor. The Gig Harbor Street Scramble is the largest Street Scramble in North America and the only free Street Scramble in the greater Puget Sound region.

The event is FREE, but pre-registration is encouraged for the Street Scramble. The first 200 to pre-register receive a t-shirt. Registration will also be available at the event, but no t-shirt is guaranteed. 

The Gig Harbor Street Scramble is a “treasure hunt” through-out the community directing participants to 30 locations on a map. Here is how it works:

• There are 30 check points circled on your map. Each check point has a description such as “sculpture” or “road bend”.

• Visit the check points in any order, on foot or bike. You cannot use a motorized vehicle in the event.

• To prove you were at the checkpoint, answer a question such as “What is the second word on the sculpture plaque”.

• Return to the finish line before your time is up.

• Enjoy refreshments, music, interactive booths and awards!
