Boilermaker Statement on COVID-19 (coronavirus)
Mar. 17, 2020
For 42 years, the Boilermaker has brought our community together. Throughout, the safety and well-being of our runners, spectators, staff, volunteers and our community at-large, has been our number one priority.
With that in mind, rest assured that we are closely monitoring the developing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) and will continue to do so over the coming months preceding Boilermaker Weekend.
As of now, our planning and preparations for the 43rd running of the Boilermaker scheduled for July 12th, 2020 are well underway and will continue unabated. For the 19,000 runners, who are undaunted and are continuing to register, along with the tens of thousands of you, who comprise Boilermaker Nation, we will be working to ensure that you will be able to enjoy the Boilermaker experience you have come to expect.
In the coming months, we will continue to monitor the situation and as Boilermaker Weekend approaches, any decisions will be made in concert with our local, state and federal officials and with your best interests in mind. We will communicate with you as soon as possible should there be any potential changes and what our collective options are.
We will be ready to welcome the running community on the 2nd Sunday in July. In the meantime, be smart, wash your hands, keep moving, stay positive and long may you run.
The 43rd running of the Boilermaker Road Race will take place on Sunday, July 12th, 2020 and will host the 25th PRRO Championship race.
