Jan. 31, 2011
Utica N.Y. (January 31, 2011) In an effort to keep local runners aware of registration for the 2011 Boilermaker updated numbers will be forwarded to local media outlets weekly.
This year a registration cap has been set for both the 15k and 5k races. The cap is set for 13,000 runners for the 15k and 4,000 for the 5k. The 3-Mile Walk which takes place Saturday, July 9th will not be capped.
To date, 2,428 have signed up for the 15k, while 233 are registered for the 5k. Last year at this time 740 runners were signed up for the 15k and 50 for the 5k.
Currently only on-line registrations are being accepted at boilermaker.com. Paper applications will initially be available Saturday February 5th at the New Hartford and Rome Planet Fitness locations from 9:00 until noon. Due to recent credit card standards only cash and checks can be accepted for paper applications.
The downloadable application will be available at the Boilermaker website on Monday, February 7th.
These releases will occur every Monday until the registration caps have been reached.
The 34th running of the Boilermaker will take place Sunday, July 10th 2011.
