Once again this year, the runners at the Mayor’s Icicle Ten Miler in Wilmington got a 3.8-mile discount due to cold, icy conditions. Go figure. The race organizers again cut the course down last weekend to a 10K. Along with the Icicle race, there was also a Snowball 5K.
Placing 19th overall out of 233 finishers was CRR Bruce Weber, who won the 55-59 age group and turned in a 41:00 10K time, remarkable given the super-cold temperatures. Placing third in that same age group was CRR Steve Tague, who ran a 46:42. Also noteworthy is that CRR Ryan German ran a 49:38.
On the distaff side, Dover resident and CRR Holly Scott placed third among the 55-59s in 50:57.
In the Mayor’s Snowball 5K, CRR Theresa Kauffman won the 50-59s in 27:05, and she did do the second 5K loop as a “cool down” (literally).
