It was a sad moment when the Boilermaker announced that this year the annual post-race party would be without the popular flyover. That has been one of the signature features for the big event for countless years and when the military jets were not available, Executive Director for The Boilermaker Tim Reed, started digging in to see what else could be done. What he discovered was truly amazing!
At 11am, Saturday, July 10, 2015, the Utica Zoo unveiled the new animal that will now be calling Central New York home! We were on hand for the official announcement at the top of the hill in the African Alley section of the zoo.
Boilermaker Weekend is upon us and it is arguably the biggest weekend of the year for the City of Utica. One of the greatest things that the race represents is how strong and supportive our community is. Utica has always had a reputation for this and in 1985, a commercial was released titled "You are Utica." It demonstrates perfectly what this weekend is about.
Plan on running the Boilermaker this weekend? When you're done you probably plan on drinking a beer or two after the brewery. That's ok! However, you may find if you drink this you'll recover a little bit faster after running. Here's the top post run drinks, other than water.
There are not many events that unite our community like the Utica Boilermaker. It is one of the biggest days of the year for our city and it's not just because of the free beer. It's one of the few times where the community comes out to show their support and cheer on the folks who brave the heat to run through the streets of the city. This year, the Boilermaker is hoping for the people's help in making the spectating experience a little more special and exciting.
The Food Bank of Central New York will be able to provide nearly 1,700 meals to the less fortunate thanks to a unique partnership that sandwiched fitness with a good burger, and a slice of charitable giving on top.
How do you celebrate finishing the Boilermaker? If you're Mike Vennero of Sauquoit, you propose. Mike waited at the finish line for his girlfriend Megan Risler. When she finished, Mike dropped to one knee. Luckily Megan said yes.
Mother Nature was nice enough to hold off the wet weather for the 2014 Boilermaker road race, where Andy Cash finished the 15K. Way to go ANDY! Tad & I were there to provide moral support for the thousands of runners. Tad took care of the music and I took the pictures. See if we caught you.
