Registration is open now for the Duluth Area Family YMCA's Sidewalk Shuffle, along with the Greater Downtown Council, the race is run along the Duluth Lake Walk with one of the best scenery for any race.

The race takes place on June 13th and is the 14th year of the Sidewalk Shuffle 5K. The race also offers a walking division if you want to take part but don't think you can keep up that pace to run the whole thing. The race is run to help raise funds for all the YMCA programming, memberships, and lifesaving community resources that are available to the public.

You can race as an individual, a team, or a duo, but you do have to register. If you register by June 13 you are guaranteed a t-shirt, and registration closes by July 11. You can register on the YMCA website, or in person at the Downtown Duluth YMCA. You can register at the last minute with a paper registration by July 13 by 8 am at the Downtown branch.

Teams will need to designate a captain who will then create your team. If you are a business or organization, multiple teams can be created and paid for at once by selecting the drop-down arrow and the number of teams you would like to register.

Once the team is created, the captain lets all the members know so they can join that team when they register. When the members join they will look for the "Join Team" option to be on that team. If you are more than 5 people on a team you will have to register many teams.

The Award Ceremony will take place between 12:45-1:15 P.M. Results will be posted on the Duluth Y website, www.duluthymca.org/programs/events/sidewalk-shuffle, www.northlandrunner.com, and www.duluthtimingandevents.com.
