Beyond the Backyard is an adventure race: part scavenger hunt and part double-dog-dare. This family-friendly event is designed for fun-seekers of all ages and competitors of all abilities. It is perfect for families and/or groups of friends, and offers team-building opportunities for colleagues, sports teams, and youth groups.
On Saturday, May 22nd teams will race to complete a series of challenges in the categories of Physical; Find; Skill; and Fun across a three-hour period. There are prizes for the team to finish first, the team that captures the best photo and the individual that raises the most money. Visit our FAQs for more details on how the race works.
Race entry is $25/person and teams then raise or self-pledge $300 to benefit Tacoma Habitat’s affordable homeownership and foreclosure prevention programs. (Entry fees count toward the team goal, so if you have 4 people register, you’re 1/3 there.) Proceeds benefit Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity’s affordable homeownership and foreclosure prevention programs, making it possible for families to be safely housed during these challenging times.
