By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The field of wheelchair racers for the 2014 Boilermaker is set, and it is intense!
 
26 male racers and three female will participate in the event.
 
One of the most anticipated participants in this field is local talent, Hermin Garic, who placed 2nd in the big race last year.
 
"It's a really strong field, of course Herman being the local with the hometown favorite it seems," said Gary Roback, Wheelchair Division co-coordinator. "He's finished second, pushing to finish first we've got paralympic gold medalists, the guy who just finished third at Peachtree, a really strong field. 
 
"He's going to have a great race and good competition. I think they'll push each other."
 
The Wheelchair competition starts at 7:45 a.m. on Boilermaker Sunday.
