Gumshoe Wrapped

Gumshoe The Gumshoe is an annual summertime FUNdraising detective walk in Seattle's Phinney Ridge and Greenwood neighborhoods. Buy an entry form, solve the clues that guide you through the 3.1 mile walk - discovering fun things along the way - and you qualify for prize drawings and raise money for three local non-profits: Greenwood Senior Center, Greenwood Food Bank and Greenwood Elementary School PTA.

Though you're too late to do this year's Gumshoe, we leave this site posted year around so you can view the clues and answers to the 2015 walk - and see who won.

Approximately 550 amateur sleuths did the Gumshoe in 2015, raising just over $4,800. Each non-profit received a third of the proceeds.

Come back next June when we update the site with everything you need to know to do the 2016 Gumshoe!
