The Boilermaker Road Race is partnering with Empire State Trail to encourage people to get active by running, walking and biking outdoors over the next few months.

The two have come together to hold the “Empire State Trail Challenge,” urging people to get out and explore the newly completed Empire State Trail, which spans across the state.

"Creating opportunities for healthy activity and lifestyles lies at the core of the Boilermaker mission,” said Jordan Peters, Boilermaker marketing director. “So, it was a natural fit to work in concert with New York State to provide New Yorkers with an opportunity to get outside and participate in a safe and healthy endeavor while highlighting the features of the Empire State Trail."

There are three legs of the challenge, including the Hudson Valley Greenway Trail from New York City to Albany, the Champlain Valley Trail from Albany to Canada and the Erie Canalway Trail from Buffalo to Albany.

Participants can register online, and have from April 9 to Aug. 1 to complete one, two or all three legs of the challenge. Miles will be logged and tracked virtually, and a digital dashboard will be posted showing the progress of all of the challengers.

Cost to enter is $25 for one section of the trail, and $5 for each additional leg.

To sign up for the challenge, visit: runsignup.com. Registration is open from now through July 5.

The annual Boilermaker Road Race is scheduled for Oct. 10 in Utica.
