3rd Friday June: Race Through Time
Note: This event has passed.
GO!!!!— to the MAH for Race Through Time, a thrilling around-the-town scavenger hunt that will get you whizzing through Santa Cruz history, while biking or walking down sunny streets with friends and competitors.
Organized by the Museum of Art & History, Race Through Time is back and better this year with a biking and walking component, daring new clues, awesome prizes, and surprise challenges along the way. Providing a new way to learn old stories, the rules for Race Through Time are simple:
Participating racers will form teams of 2 to 5, and together, work to solve a packet of 20 clues that reveal places in Santa Cruz that hold historical significance. Upon solving each clue and finding each corresponding location, racers will earn points towards their grand total of points— which can earn them a bundle of worthy prizes, including a MAH membership.
But that’s not all. Extra points will be rewarded to the best-dressed team, and teams who participate in surprise-challenges held at various locations. When the clock strikes 8, all racers must be back at the Museum, where they can cool down with an iced beer, and other refreshing beverages and snacks.
So no need to bring your heavy textbook— the history here lies beneath your spinning bike wheels, sprinting feet, and the story paved streets of your own hometown.
