Troops In Afghanistan Competed In Boilermaker Shadow Run
At Big Frog 104, we always like to share news about our troops serving throughout the world. You may have heard about the Boilermaker Shadow Run, where our troops participated by running in Afghanistan.
Here’s more from our sister station, WIBX:
“American troops stationed in Western Afghanistan got a little taste of home, by running their version of the Boilermaker.
Members of the 2nd Battalion of the 108th Infantry, based out of the Parkway Armory in Utica, ran their fifth Boilermaker Shadow Run on July 20th. The winner finished the 15k event in 64 minutes.
In Afghanistan, temperatures typically will hit 100 degrees with wind gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour. They will return home in the fall with the finish line banner, signed by the participants. A celebration will be held to mark the event.”
