Gumshoe 5K Detective Walk – Oldies but Goodies

Monday June 1, 2020 - Monday August 31, 2020

The Gumshoe 5K – an annual tradition for the past 15 years – is a fun detective walk that leads you through a 3.1 jaunt around the neighborhood while following head-scratching clues. This year was supposed to be the big Finale and final year of the event (which is organized by a Phinney neighbor known as the Answer Man).

First the bad news: Due to the pandemic, this summer’s Dual Gumshoe Finale, featuring an updated version of the 2006’s original detective walk in July and a new walk in August, has been postponed until 2021.
Now the good news: The Answer Man has updated the 2011, 2012 and 2013 walks and will post them to on June 1, July 1 and August 1 for members of cabin-fevered households to do for free —provided they promise to don masks and use proper social distancing when in proximity to other gumshoes and regular civilians!

Go to to learn how to “gumshoe” and to download the clues sheet. Don’t have a printer? The Phinney Center will have them available from 9 am – 5 pm, Monday- Friday. (6532 Phinney Ave N)

Join the Gumshoe Facebook group for extra fun!

Neighborhood-wide Gumshoe Days:

Let’s all get out and Gumshoe on the same day, so we can run into our neighbors along the way and trade hints (from 6 feet apart, of course) for extra fun and community.

June: Sunday, June 28
July: Saturday. July 18
August: Saturday, Aug 15
