Starting this year, a local band will be given a chance to showcase their talent.
"With the moving up of the 5k starting time last year from 7:30 to 7:15 am we saw more runners arriving at the Post Race venue earlier" said Post Race Party Director Tom Heiland. "This is an opportunity to offer more to our participants."
In order to qualify, the band must be located within a fifty mile radius from Utica.
Bands interested in being considered should email Sarah Marris at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
A total of 18,000 runners will run the Boilermaker Road Race on July 8th, 2012.
