Sibley Sparkling Shuffle is back for 2022! We do urge people to take social distancing practices seriously, per CDC guidelines. If for some reason, due to Covid19 restrictions, the state adds restrictions which would cause us to cancel this years 5k, we would go through efforts to contact participants to work on refunding the event fees.  Thank you so much for your support!

  • Live "Chris Corkery" at the Sibley Park for all to enjoy for 2022. Pack the park and enjoy the music while runners run the 5k. You do not have to be registered for the 5k to enjoy the free music of Chris Corkery in the park. 
  • New animatronic props and 3 miles of lights and props, what fun. Put on your own glow wire (el wire kits are cheap online get ready now), led rings, headbands, and light yourself up for the run... having fun on your run. 
  • Find Abe Lincoln giving the Gettysburg Address and the dancing Uncle Sam.... and one more surprise patriotic character from our countries past.  
  • Food Vendors on site! Bring your money and appetite for some amazing food for runners and people just wanting to show support and watch the show. Runners can eat after they get done with the run too. 
  • Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy the show and good food even if you do not run!
