    The 
    Twin Cities Snowshoe Shuffle (TCSS) is the
    biggest snowshoe race in Minnesota! Participants come from around the country to participate in this fun and challenging winter race. 
    The TCSS is a US Snowshoe Association's sanctioned event.


    ***Registration-7:30 a.m., race start-9:30 a.m.

    ***REGISTER ONLINE TODAY!
    or visit the the website: www.snowshoeshuffle.org
    or fill out and mail in the registration form

    There is a 5K and a 10K track set up for the racers, and a 5k dog walk! Awards are given to the top 3 men and women finishers in each of 7 age categories, which are listed on the registration form. The race will be officially timed. The race is also part of the Braveheart Series, a free series that allows racers to earn points and win free prizes.

    Not that serious? This event is fun for people of all ages and abilities. Walking or running with snowshoes is a fun and healthy activity. The TCSS is a great opportunity to get outside with your friends or family!

    Proceeds from the 2016 TCSS are used to provide scholarships for children to attend Camp Bovey, East Side Neighborhood Services summer camp where urban youth learn to respect themselves, one another, and the environment. 

    Following the Race/Walk, a post-event warm up chili lunch will be served at East Side Neighborhood Services (1700 Second Street NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413). Awards and prizes for participants and a silent auction to raise funds for Camp Bovey, East Side's summer outdoor leadership camp, will also be held at the lunch.

    The Twin Cities Snowshoe Shuffle honors the memory of Joe Holewa, event co-founder and a lifelong snowshoer up to age 87.


    Canines for Camp - 5K Dog Walk -Since the Twin Cities Snowshoe Shuffle's inception, we have noticed an increasing turnout of racers with dogs. Racers will still be able to run or walk in the snowshoe race with their dogs, but we created a sub-event for dog lovers that is less competitive and more relaxing, but still a great way to get exercise for owners and dogs during the cold winter months. Each participant will receive a gift bag with dog items as well as a race shirt.

    REGISTRATION:
    $35 entry fee, $40 after January 15th, ($20 for students aged 13-23) and $25 for the dog walk allows you to participate and includes an event shirt and chili lunch after the race. Snowshoes will be available for rental. Register on Active.com.


    SNOWSHOE RACER BIB PICK-UP:
    Avoid race-day lines and check-in early! You can get your race number and confirm shoe rental. Pick up is on Friday, February 5 from 4-7 at East Side Neighborhood Services. 

    ON RACE DAY:
    The race starts at 9:30am, but bib pick-up starts at 7:30am. We encourage you to arrive early to give yourself plenty of time to pick up your race number (and snowshoes if you are renting) and stretch and warm up before the race.


    POST-EVENT ACTIVITIES: SILENT AUCTION & CHILI LUNCHEON
    The Silent Auction will be displayed for auctioning at East Side Neighborhood Services (1700 Second Street NE. Minneapolis, MN 55413) and Chili Luncheon following the snowshoe race. All proceeds from the silent auction will benefit children with financial needs to attend Camp Bovey, the summer resident camp of East Side Neighborhood Services.
    To donate items to our silent auction, please contact Greg Ritter, (612) 787-4019 or gritter@esns.org

    Living Well with Chronic Conditions

    Developed at Stanford University, the Workshop has been offered at hundreds of locations throughout the United States. It helps participants with ongoing health conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, anxiety and others to:

    • Find better ways of dealing with pain and fatigue
    • Discover easy exercises to help improve or maintain strength and energy
    • Learn the appropriate use of medications
    • Improve nutrition
    • Talk effectively with family, friends and health professionals
    • Understand new treatment choices
    • Feel better about life

    “I now have a new sense of being in control,” said Doris, “The Workshop has really helped me put life back in my life.”

    The workshop meets every week, for two hours, for six weeks. It is led by specially trained volunteer leaders, some who have health conditions themselves. The program covers new topics each week and provides opportunities for interaction and group problem solving. The leaders are more like coaches who guide participants through the topics. The answer to someone’s question is usually in the room from another participant who has gone or is going through a similar situation.

    The program serves those who are 60 years of age or better who are living with a chronic condition themselves or are caring for someone who is.  Everyone who participates will receive a, “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions” reference book.  A sliding fee scale is used to determine the fee of the program; however no one will be turned away for an inability to pay.

    East Side Neighborhood Services will be hosting the next Living Well with Chronic Conditions workshop. It will begin on February 16th and will take place every Tuesday from 1:30-3:30 for six weeks. For more information or to enroll in Living Well with Chronic Conditions call Brenna Horn, 612-787-4055.

    This program has been designed by the Stanford University Patient Education Research Center. This program is funded under contract with the Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging Inc. as part of the Older Americans Act Program funding.  Presented in partnership with the Wilder Foundation.
