Bassett Healthcare prepares for corporate participation in Boilermaker, shares their own tips for runners
COOPERSTOWN – The countdown to race day has begun for Bassett Healthcare’s Boilermaker team and other corporate teams prepping for this year’s running of the 15k road race in Utica. The Boilermaker attracts thousands of runners every year, and many area businesses organize a corporate team to compete in the race and vie for bragging rights.
Also among the sea of runners every year are many people new to the sport, new to running with such a large group (over 10, 692 registered so far), or new to a competitive event.
Mike Rutledge, physical therapist, Team Bassett member and Boilermaker veteran, answers a few questions that commonly come up in the week leading up to the big race.
