WEST UTICA- 19,000 runners will see a new mural at the Boilermaker Finish Line on July 14.

The 40-foot-long mural has runners from previous Boilermaker races. It's right on the headquarters.

The Utica Area Chamber of Commerce, Boilermaker Committee, designers from McGrogan Design, and locals gathered to officially welcome the mural.

Designers said they wanted to incapsulate every part of the race. So, you'll see a participant from the wheelchair race, the 15K, the 5K, the kids run, and of course the after party.

They aslso said they want runners to feel like they accomplished something.

"A sense of pride. They will realize that the Boilermaker is not just an hour and a half run it's a lot more than that," said Ryan McGrogan, graphic designer and owner of McGrogan Design. 

The finish line sign was put up on Thursday, June 27.

Boilermaker is July 14.
