"Eating with the Experts" Boilermaker Pasta Buffet and The Runner's Forum

Jul. 2, 2015

Pasta Dinner

It's year number 18 for the Boilermaker Pasta Buffet! This little gem of an event, which occurs during the Boilermaker Expo, has raised thousands of dollars for the United Way of the Valley & Greater Utica Area over the years. The all-you-can-eat buffet is a favorite of runners and non-runners alike. Everything is made right on premises by Sodexo. We offer a variety of sauces and pastas, freshly tossed salad with bread and of course, meatballs. Don't forget dessert! This year we have added a cold pasta salad to cool off on a hot afternoon. All this for $7.00 and remember…. all proceeds go directly to the United Way of the Valley & Greater Utica Area.

Something new this year! The Pasta Buffet and The Runner's Forum will partner their events. You will now have the opportunity to "Eat with the Experts"! You can participate in the program while "carb loading" or, if you choose, simply enjoy the panel discussion without food. The 2015 Runners' Forum Panel includes: Bill Rodgers, Kathrine Switzer, Roger Robinson, along with local experts in nutrition and exercise. This is your chance to ask the experts questions about running, nutrition, training, and injuries. In a casual, conversational setting our panel of experts will directly address any questions that you have about the sport of running. Katherine Switzer and Bill Rodgers will also be available before and after the panel discussion to autograph their latest books.

Prior to the buffet and forum, come cheer on your favorite media personalities as they gorge themselves in the "Pasta Eating Contest" starting at 12:00 in front of the Alumni Center. This event should be entertaining and very messy!

To tie the afternoon together, we are pleased to have the very talented Chris Cooley back again jamming on his guitar and singing popular tunes on the lawn. At the age of 12, Chris is well on his way to a great musical future.

Come "Eat with the Experts"!
The Pasta Buffet is sponsored by The Boilermaker Road Race, Sodexo and MVCC.
