_ The 2022 St. Patrick's Day Mad Mile:
The 2022 Mad Mile will be bigger and better! Bring your family, your friends, and your best Irish outfit, and get ready to dash down the Genesee Street parade route just ahead of the Utica St. Patrick's Day Parade. With a built-in cheering crowd, this one-mile course with elevation drop will get you revved up to enjoy the day's festivities.
The race kicks off at 9:45 am, sharp on Saturday, March 12th. We'll gather for the Start on Clinton Place at Genesee Street, and move to the start line on Genesee Street at 9:40 am. As you can expect road closures and delays, please plan accordingly for parking and extra time to walk to the start. We cannot delay the start as the parade goes off at 10:00. Please be aware of your surroundings, as parade floats will be lining up near the start line. The 1-mile race course is a straight shot down Genesee Street (hello, downhill!), ending at Colombia Street where we will gather for results (TNT Timing) and prizes (Courtesy of The Sneaker Store). Then you can relax, enjoy the parade (we have a perfect view from our finish line area!!!), and maybe even wander down to Varick Street for some more celebrating!
A portion of the proceeds will go to the St. Patrick’s Day Parade put on by the Great American Irish Festival. The Irish Festival's mission is to promote Irish culture, history, dance, language, etc. The corporation’s purpose is solely for charitable and educational efforts. This is a race you can feel good about entering! Register now for just $25, including a t-shirt , design created by The Sneaker Store's own Scott Young, but don't wait, the price goes up to $30 on race day! T-Shirt sizes are guaranteed through 3/2/21, and after that will be first come, first served.
