The Boilermaker 15K presented by Excellus BlueCross BlueShield is the premier event of Boilermaker Weekend. This world-renowned race is often referred to as the country's best 15K. The Boilermaker 15K is recognized for its entertaining yet challenging course and racing's best post-race party, hosted by the F.X. Matt Brewing Company, featuring Saranac beer and a live concert!
