SUNDAY DECEMBER 6th – 13th, 2021
In-Person and Virtual Race Week!

With 26 years under our belt, the Santa Claus Shuffle is a well-planned, fun and festive event for the entire family! To ensure the safety of our community, we will be 100% virtual this year. While the Shuffle may look a little different this year, we’ll still have the same holiday cheer and excitement as always! Santa will make an appearance, hot chocolate will be offered, and runners will still get to race. All from the comfort of your home and favorite race route. 

All Shuffle activities will take place between December 6th and 13th. Get your running shoes ready, pull those holiday costumes out of the closet, and join us for the 27th Annual Santa Claus Shuffle!

Running in the Santa Claus Shuffle will boost your holiday spirits –  PLUS, you will be helping young people in our community who need a little extra guidance and the help of caring adults.  Please join us and register today!

With your help we can touch lives of youth in ways not possible through state support alone.  From meeting basic needs of youth to developing and supporting life-changing services, the proceeds from the Santa Claus Shuffle are vital to the success of our efforts.  We believe the TYS Foundation has answers to questions and solutions to problems plaguing at-risk youth in the area.  We invite you to participate with us and become part of the solution.
