UTICA, N.Y. – The Boilermaker will reopen registration on May 1, after allowing people who were already registered to decide if they wanted to participate on the postponed date.

When Boilermaker Road Race officials announced the event’s postponement on April 13, registered runners were given the opportunity to either keep their registration, get a refund, transfer registration to 2021 or donate the registration fee to the race.

Officials suspended sign-ups to allow the nearly 12,000 participants who were already registered to decide between these options. Boilermaker President Mark Donovan says most registrants decided to participate in the rescheduled event on Sept. 13.

“Throughout this challenging process, we have worked to provide our loyal runners with fair options, ample time, and the important information they need to make educated decisions,” said Donovan. “As we re-open the registration process, we are heartened to see that the overwhelming majority of previously registered runners have chosen to join us on our rescheduled date in September and we welcome those who fill the limited remaining spots going forward.”

Starting at noon on Friday, May 1, registration will reopen to public.

Tiered pricing has also been suspended for 2020, and fees will remain $60 and $50 for the 15K and 5K respectively, until each race reaches its cap. Caps will remain at 14,500 for the 15K and 4,500 for the 5K.

Officials are still working toward rescheduling other traditional Boilermaker events, including the expo and packet pick-up. That information will be released when it becomes available.
