About the event:
The Boilermaker Expo is the kickoff event to Boilermaker Weekend.  Over the two days of the event, thousands will pass through the Jorgensen Fieldhouse. 

The main reason people come to the expo is to pick up their runner packets for the Boilermaker 15K Road Race.  Each runner will receive their bib number and timing chip along with a goodie bag at the Expo.

The Expo also plays host to the Kids Run on Saturday morning. However, the 3 Mile Walk will take place at the Masonic Care Community.

Other events that will take place include the National Distance Running Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, the Runners Forum, the Pasta Dinner and the Boilermaker Volunteer Party.

Important Information:
To pick up a race packet, all registered runners MUST HAVE A PHOTO I.D. We discourage runners from picking up someone else's race packet, but if you plan on doing so, you will need at least a copy of their PHOTO I.D. Race packets will not be given to anyone who does not present PHOTO I.D.

A parent or guardian must accompany young runners who do not have a photo I.D.
