Utica National Kids Run

The Utica National Kids Run is one of the Boilermaker's most popular and beloved events year after year. In its 32nd year, the event is fun for kids and parents alike, and offers kids exposure to the sport of running while introducing them to the spirit of the Boilermaker.

Runners in this non-competitive event receive a t-shirt, a gift, and refreshments after the run. In addition, all runners' names are published in the Observer-Dispatch, which gives parents a great opportunity to record their child's participation.
