Shamrock Shuffle canceled due to weather

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- The Shamrock Shuffle that was scheduled to take place in Eau Claire Saturday morning has been canceled.

Organizers say grounds crew have put a lot of time and energy into clearing, sanding and salting the race route, but unfortunately, the pattern of thawing and freezing all week has left the trails wet and icy. They also say the "black ice" is a concern for the safety of the runners.

They do not plan to reschedule the event but plan to continue to hold it next year.

Those who registered will get a 50-percent refund. Participants will get an email with more information on that.
