The Boilermaker 15K & 5K Road Race

Sponsorship 411

The Best 15K. The Best Post-Race Party. The Best
Community Support. World Renowned. Locally Adored.

"The walking, jogging and running world is THE most vibrant, successful and upwardly mobile sport. It has the highest ranking income of any sporting sector, on par with golf, but reaches a much more family-oriented group. No other city (the size of Utica) has a community cheering on athletes, shoulder to shoulder, for the entire 9.3 miles of the race. The Boilermaker is one of the best in the world on exhibiting organization and community spirit."

– Larry Rawson, ESPN and National Distance Running
Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony emcee.
