When: May 7th, 11 AM. Please arrive at 10:30 AM for registration.

Where: The race starts and ends at the University of Washington Tacoma campus stairs. The race map will list the participating stops.

Who: Registration is for teams of two or up to four people, of any age. Each team member will receive an Amazing Preservation Race T-shirt on which they can write their team name.

What: Learn about Tacoma's unique cultural and historic resources as you race around the city completing family-friendly challenges throughout downtown Tacoma! The three teams that complete the most challenges in the shortest amount of time will win the grand prizes! Each team will receive a mystery goodie bag with items from our sponsors and partners!

Teams will pre-register online. Teams must meet at the start of the race to receive the race map with the participating locations.
