Boilermaker Community Mile Postponed

The Boilermaker Community Mile, slated to take place on Tuesday July 7, 2015 has been postponed due to lack of signups. At present there is no reschedule date. All monies will be refunded to people who signed up.

'It's obviously disappointing that we didn't see greater interest' said Ted Petrillo, Director of the Community Mile. 'Perhaps the strong focus on the Boilermaker 15k & 5k races hurt us getting the word out.'

This year's mile run was planned to take place in F.T. Proctor Park with the proceeds to benefit renovation of the park system.

'We're going to have a few focus group meetings post-Boilermaker to see what we can do to garner community interest' said Tim Reed President of the Boilermaker. 'Community mile events have been growing throughout the U.S.: We'll figure this out.
