If you were looking to run in the Boilermaker but didn’t sign up, you may be in luck. In honor of the man who started the Boilermaker Road Race, ECR International will award four lucky people entries for this year’s sold out race.

WIBX is reporting that Carolyn Kuczynski the Senior Marketing Rep for the company  says the giveaway honors Earle C. Reed, the man who started the road race in 1978, in an effort to give back to the community. Here's details on the contest:
