The Twin Cities Snowshoe Shuffle is turning ten this Saturday, when it’s held again at Long Lake Regional Park in New Brighton.

Organizers couldn’t help but notice over the past decade that more and more snowshoers were coming to the event with their dogs in tow.

So the Canines for Camp 5K Dog Walk will return as one of the races’ four courses.

The Dog Walk will be far more laid back than the main race, but will still be a super fun romp in the snow – and it will help bolster a great cause.

Proceeds from the 5K Dog Walk will benefit Camp Bovey, East Side Neighborhood Services‘ summer camp program for Minneapolis kids who rarely get the chance to get out and enjoy the great outdoors.

Even though there is the Dog Walk, organizers want to remind participants that dogs are still welcomed in the main race.

Registration for the 2015 Twin Cities Snowshoe Shuffle starts this Saturday at 8 a.m., and the race begins at 10 a.m. Click here for more information.
