Access Program

Presented By Wolfspeed

Launched in 2022, the Access Program strives to improve access to the Boilermaker’s namesake second-weekend-in-July events by reducing financial barriers. We strongly believe that running and road racing can change lives and no one should be excluded.

The program provides a select number of runners facing financial hardship with complimentary entry into any event, including the world-renowned 15K and 5K road races, in addition to footwear and training assistance, through partnerships with Wolfspeed and The Sneaker Store.
