Fred Matt, Chairman of the Board of the Boilermaker Road Race and President of the F.X. Matt Brewery announced that, due to popular demand, Haus Lager will once again be the beer served at the 2018 Saranac Post Race Party.

Boilermaker Sponsor and Marketing Specialist, Jordan Peters, announced that popular local cover band Showtime will be returning to the stage at the post-race party as well. They will be performing along with legendary Utica area musicians taking the stage with them as well. Among the guest performers is Whitesboro native, Jessica Antonette, who goes by the stage name J. Antonette. She is an up-and-coming country musician who has performed back-up vocals for Melissa Etheridge. She will perform a brief set with Showtime as well as sing the national anthem.

"I am super excited to be back home performing at our area's best event," said Antonette. "I have friends and family running in the event and can't wait to perform in front of them and the other 40,000 partygoers."


The 41st running of the Boilermaker Road Race will take place on Sunday, July 8th, 2018. Bibs are still available in the 15K presented by Excellus BlueCross BlueShield.
