UTICA, N.Y - It was a rainy day for the 2019 Summer Sizzle road race Sunday Morning. 

The 5-Mile run took place in Proctor Park in Utica. The course weaved through the park and the areas around it.

Sunday's race was put on by the Utica Road Runners club. The funds raised from the race go towards benefitting the club and to raising money for scholarships for local students.

Road Runners President Wayne Murphy said that this race helps runners prepare for the biggest race of the year, the Boilermaker.

"So it seems like the weather hasn't cooperated much, it seems like we've had a late spring, and then we had a lot of rain on top of that. So we are all trying to get ready for the Boilermaker, and this should help with that," said Murphy.

There was also a kid run that kicked off at 8:30 that same morning.

Runners said that they are keeping their fingers crossed for a dry Boilermaker.
