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.
This Sunday is one of the most exciting days of the year for the city of Utica and that's because it's Boilermaker Sunday!!! One of the most important things a runner of this famous road race needs is the support of spectators along the course. M&T Bank is joining with the community to make sure that happens at mile 8!
Am I biased towards anything that the Saranac Brewery creates? Yes, but that's because it has a phenomenal reputation that is backed up by several awards, including the most recent award! The official beer of this year's Boilermaker is Wild Hop Pils and this week it took home the Gold in the US Open Beer Championships.
Are you joining the Boilermaker Burger Relay team to help Tad and Polly destroy the competition? Well, other than chowing down on the Boilermaker burgers you may need a drink. How about a Utica Boilermaker Cocktail?
