Access Program

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 first-time runners with a 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.

To apply for this year's program, download the entry form below. All applications must be received by May 31, 2022.
