The Seattle Public Library participates in Seattle Urban Trek race April 27

Seattle Urban Trek

The Seattle Public Library's Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., is one of 12 checkpoints in the Seattle Urban Trek race taking place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 27 in downtown Seattle.


Upon arriving at the Central Library, race participants will need to answer a trivia question about the library in order to move on to the next destination.


The Seattle Urban Trek is a team adventure race that combines the attractions of Seattle with treasure hunting, running, social media, problem solving and team work. Starting at the downtown Seattle Waterfront, teams of three will race a 7-10 mile course consisting of a series of fun and unique checkpoints hosting mystery cognitive or physical challenges.


This event is sponsored by Seattle Sports Commission.
