Race Through Time!

It’s time for the 2015 UW Scavenger Hunt! Travel back to 1936, the year nine rowers from the UW united as one and unexpectedly brought home gold from the Berlin Olympics. They came together and defied all expectations. In that spirit, we encourage you to form your own team and work together to solve the clues. Hunt in Bothell, Seattle, or Tacoma on Thursday, April 23. The author of The Boys in the Boat, the book that chronicled the Olympic journey, will be at the Seattle hunt! Learn more and sign up here.

(NOTE: The scavenger hunt previously scheduled for Saturday, April 25 has been cancelled due to a scheduled on-campus protest. Please email wholeu@uw.edu if you have questions or concerns.)
