At The Doorstep Of The Big Event


In slightly more than one week the 32nd running of the Boilermaker will take place. While the final tally is not in for entries we may be looking at the 2nd biggest group of runners for the 15k and the largest 5k in our history.
While the focus has always been on the race on Sunday the Race Committee has strived to offer an event suitable for every age and ability. For the young, kids run on Expo Saturday at age appropriate distances. For those young at heart a 3 Mile Walk also held on Saturday though one of the great Parks in the U.S.; Thomas R. Proctor Park. Have a easy going walk with friends and family.
On Wednesday July 8th some of the top high school and college milers compete head to head blasting through an extreme downhill course on the Parkway. The first heat commences at 6:00 pm; be there to see some thrilling competition.
Finally, for those who don’t like to run or walk we have the Boilermaker Expo commencing on Friday July 10th at noon on the stately grounds of the Masonic Community. Here you can attend cooking demonstrations enjoy live music, purchase merchandise or perhaps just ‘people watch’.
This is Boilermaker Week; become a part of it!
