Celebrate Tacoma’s History at the Amazing Preservation Race on May 14

Registration is now open for the City of Tacoma’s second annual Amazing Preservation Race on Saturday, May 14 as part of Historic Preservation Month. The race will begin at 11 a.m. on the University of Washington Tacoma campus stairs (1900 Commerce St.). Registration is $50 for a team of up to four people and includes T-shirts designed by ETC Tacoma. Every team will get a mystery goodie bag provided by the event partners, but only the top three teams will receive a grand prize.

“Last year’s Amazing Preservation Race was a lot of fun and it was competitive,” said Reuben McKnight, City of Tacoma historic preservation officer. “This year will be no exception, as participants will have a chance to experience Tacoma’s history in new ways, while enjoying the outdoors.”

Participants will race across downtown Tacoma completing fun challenges as they learn about the city’s historic and cultural resources. One of the challenges includes entry into one of Tacoma’s most secret spaces. Prove how well you know downtown Tacoma and register your team today by visiting the Amazing Preservation Race Eventbrite page.
