15K Road Race presented by Excellus BlueCross BlueShield
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!
With plenty of water supports, strong attention to medical detail, and crowd support like no other race, the Boilermaker 15K is an event worth training and traveling for and should be on every runner's "must-do" list. Update 6-29-21: Participation will be limited to fully vaccinated athletes only. Proof of vaccination must be provided at packet pick-up.
