UTICA- Open registration for the 45th running of the Boilermaker Road Race begins Friday,

Anyone from the general public will be able to register for the 15K race presented by Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, or the 5K race presented by Utica National. Both races are slated to take place on the morning of Sunday, July 10, 2022. Open registration will remain open until the races meet their caps of 14,500 for the 15K and 4,500 for the 5K or Thursday, June 30.

Boilermaker Race Director Jim Stasaitis is expecting a very busy open registration period. “With the races returning to the traditional second Sunday in July, we expect that both distances will near capacity quickly,” said Stasaitis. “We strongly suggest that anyone who wants to run this year’s race register as soon as possible to guarantee a spot at the starting line.”
