Icicle Run


41st Mayor’s Icicle Ten Miler

January 8, 2017 – Sunday

Wilmington, DE


Due to more snow than projected, City officials have asked us to keep the route on City streets for the safety of all involved. These roads should be clear but City side streets will not. We will now run 5.55 mile course which will start and finish in front of the Central YMCA. Everything else stays the same with post race party at Mikimoto’s following the race. Thank you for understanding.  Here is snow route:
