Boilermaker registration begins tomorrow

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - It's that time of year again, Boilermaker registration for the 2014 Road Race begins Saturday at noon.
 
At that time, you may visit our home page right here at wktv.com to find a link to the registration page.
 
Be prepared with your address, email, date of birth, expected run time, an emergency contact, and have your credit card on hand.
     
No more than 14,000 people are allowed to sign up for the 15k, with the 5k capping at 4,500 runners.
     
These spots filled up in under 68 hours last year, and are expected to go fast again this year.
 
"Don't be impatient if it takes a couple extra minutes because (the server) may be flooded," said Race Director, Jim Stasitis. "We have predictions that the race may close in 4 to 5 hours for the 15k, and 5 to 6 hours for the 5k. 
 
"So we're assured by our local company that our servers are ready to go and there shouldn't be any crash."
 

The Committee is looking to explore possibly implementing a lottery system for next year in order to make registration a little easier.
