Utica Boilermaker Launches Access Program

The new program seeks to involve more communities in Utica's Boilermaker Road Race. 

Officials at the Boilermaker Road Race announced the start of the Access Program, a new program aimed at breaking down barriers to road racing for local immigrant, refugee, underprivileged, and underserved communities.

The Access Program will provide a select number of first-time runners with a complimentary entry into any of this year's events, including the world-renowned 15K presented by Excellus BlueCross Blue Shield and 5K road race presented by Utica National, in addition to footwear and training assistance, through partnerships with Wolfspeed and The Sneaker Store.
