UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Wednesday, the Go The Distance Committee met and selected from dozens of entries the ten people who will have the honor of training for the Boilermaker with the well-known group. This is an annual program that helps first time runners train for the 9.3-mile run through the City of Utica.
The ten people chosen will go through a rigorous training program over the next few months to prepare them for the Boilermaker Road Race. They will start on April 20th and work hard right until the Boilermaker on July 12th.
The committee met and had to decide from 67 entries, one of the highest for the program's thirteen year history.
The ten people chosen to Go The Distance are (drum roll, please):
- Katherine Cooke
- Charlene Leaf
- Glenn Beville
- Anne Connor
- Lisa Stuttard
- Patrick Yacco Sr.
- Mark Henderson
- Stacy Stevener
- Marlene Angelini
- Terry Draper
Congratulations go out to these ten people and we wish them luck as the Boilermaker is already quickly approaching. Remember, the first run is April 20th at 6:00pm at Mohawk Valley Community College. If you want to join the group to see if you can prepare for the Boilermaker also, you are welcome to attend.
