Boilermaker Registration Numbers
Utica N.Y. (January 9, 2012) - To date, 2,713 have signed up for the 15k, while 188 are registered for the 5k. Last year at this time 958 runners were signed up for the 15k and 164 for the 5k.
This two day registration total surpasses the total amount of participants that ran the first two Boilermakers held in 1978 and 1979.
This year a registration cap has been set for both the 15k and 5k races. The cap is set for 14,000 runners for the 15k and 4,000 for the 5k. The 3-Mile Walk, which takes place Saturday, July 7th, will not be capped.
Currently on-line registrations are being accepted at boilermaker.com.
The 35th running of the Boilermaker will take place Sunday, July 8th 2012.
In an effort to keep local runners aware of registration numbers for the 2012 Boilermaker the race will periodically send current totals to the media.
