The Boilermaker 15K & 5K Road Race

National Anthem Contest

National Anthem

The National Anthem Contest is an opportunity for community members to showcase their voices, to a panel of local music professionals, who judge the contestants’ National Anthem auditions.

“We always have a wonderful turnout for this event,” said Tim Reed, Executive Director of the Boilermaker. “This is one of the many opportunities that we offer to allow local citizens to become involved with our events.” I just love seeing how proud these performers are when they have concluded their piece - it is very rewarding knowing that we can provide them with a platform to showcase their talent.”

The winning performers will sing at the following Boilermaker events: Our Youth Olympics, Kids’ Run, Invitational Mile, 3-mile Walk, 5K, and 15K Races, as well as our Volunteer Party and our Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The top winner will receive the honor of singing the National Anthem at our Post Race Party amidst a crowd of 50,000 people.
