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 the three local non–profits that share the proceeds: Greenwood Senior Center, Greenwood Elementary School PTA and Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church Food Bank.

More than 1000 amateur sleuths did the Gumshoe in 2018, raising a record-breaking $8,933.76, and bringing the total funds generated by the event since it began 13 years ago to over $65,000!

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 2018 walk—and see who won. Come back next June when we update the site with everything you need to know to do the 2019 Gumshoe!
