UTICA, NY - The Youth Run is a hot ticket so much so that a few parents got in line today two hours before registration, which started at noon today at the Planet Fitness Health and Wellness Expo.
Budding Boilermaker 5 and 15k runners will be getting their running feet wet on the smaller, youth race tomorrow.
They start them young - ages four through 12. Sixteen, for those with special needs.
One of the greatest joys for the Youth Run Director is seeing the young runners 'graduate' to the bigger races.
On average, around 1600 kids take part in the Boilermaker Kids' Run.
