Maybe your New Year’s Resolution was to get in better shape and run in the 35th annual Boilermaker Road Race. Well if you want to seize that opportunity, you got to register first. This Saturday runners can begin to register and don’t delay.

According to WIBX, last year the 15K race reached its capacity on May 14th, and organizers are suggesting those interested in taking part in this year’s event should begin the registration process early. This year officials are increasing the cap for the 15K race from 13,000 to 14,000 runners. The 5K race will maintain its cap at 4,000.

If you can’t make it in person, that’s ok because you can register online. Online registration fees for the 15k will remain at $35, while the fee for the 5k will increase from $20 to $25. The Three Mile Walk application fee will remain at $15. Another change to look for this year is the elimination of a late registration fee for all participants.

Registration will run from 8:00 a.m. to Noon this Saturday. Participants can start the paper registration process early at the New Hartford Planet Fitness. A $2 registration fee is required. To celebrate the opening of Boilermaker registration, organizers say there will be a fireworks display at dusk from the P.J. Green Parking Lot on Whitesboro Street in Utica.

The 35th running of the Boilermaker Road Race will take place on Sunday July 8th.
