The Bob Ingalls Police & Firefighter Competition
The Bob Ingalls Utica Police and Fire Department Competition inspires a healthy running rivalry between members of the Utica Police Department and Utica Fire Department. Members of both departments train and compete for the title of Public Safety Champion of the City. The department with the five fastest Boilermaker 15K runners receives a traveling trophy and more importantly, bragging rights.
Spectators and runners, can look for the members of both departments. They'll be the ones running in the performance shirts with either UPD or UFD on their backs. Be sure to give them a cheer and thank them for their service as they pass.
