TriCity Family Services’ Annual Snowflake Shuffle 5K has become a winter tradition for our community and is truly a family-oriented experience for all ages.
Last weekend’s blizzard has presented us with a challenge … treacherous surroundings that will prevent even the most seasoned runners from safely navigating the deep snow, icy surfaces and future threats of freezing rain … impassable paths for snowplows to navigate and shovel in time for the race.
While our agency looked forward to celebrating this milestone anniversary with all of you, we must remember that, first and foremost, our top priority is keeping you and your family members safe at all times. It is for this reason that we must, with regrets, cancel Saturday’s Snowflake Shuffle, due to the hazardous conditions.
PLEASE NOTE: Packet pick-up will continue to take place at Dick Pond Athletics (303 N. 2nd St., St. Charles) on Friday, between 1-7pm, as scheduled. At that time, we will distribute all quarter-zip tech shirts, finisher medals and goody bags, as guaranteed during the registration process. We will also have warm apple cider and cookies available while you wait.
Again, we share your disappointment but trust that you understand the safety reasons for making this important decision. Thank you for supporting TriCity Family Services. *As a reminder, your registration fee is still tax-deductible.
