Tim Reed announced he is stepping down as President of the Boilermaker Road Race, after ten years at the helm. "It feels like it's a great time for me to give someone else a chance to lead this fantastic organization" said Reed. "I'm excited to move on to the next big thing in my life and hand the reigns over to our new leader."

The Boilermaker, one of America's premier road races and a proud member of the PRRO Circuit, occurs the second Sunday in July in Utica, New York and also features a 5k race and kid's run and walk. Total participation is over 21,000 with a volunteer force of over 5,000.

The race ends at the F.X. Matt Brewery and hosts a Post-Race Party with an estimated crowd of over 40,000 and is considered by many as the gold standard of road racing events.

The Boilermaker whose mission is "to change people's lives in a healthy way" has an active community outreach program including an urban garden, kids in training in conjunction with the Utica School District and a public market promoting healthy food alternatives.

"We are indebted to Tim for both his vision and business sense he has brought the Boilermaker" said Fred Matt, chairman of the board of the Boilermaker. "He has left the organization in a very strong position from both a structural and financial perspective. The future for the organization is exceptional with the immense local heritage, support of the community, runners and sponsors." "The Board of Directors is grateful for Tim's leadership and looks forward to continuing his legacy with unprecedented success in the years to come."
