About the program

The Boilermaker Road Race is now offering a charity bib program to support local non-profits. The Boilermaker has set aside 200 bibs for organizations to use to entice participants to raise pledges.

The bibs can be utilized for the 15k and 5k races. Participants must commit to raise a minimum of $500 for the selected non-profits. The bibs will be provided to the charity of choice at no cost.

"We saw this as a wonderful opportunity to use the power of the Boilermaker to positive chance in our community" said Tim Reed, president of the Boilermaker. "We have seen the great results of programs like this throughout the country."

Organizations selected will be in charge of the administration of the program including the collection of pledge money. In addition, they must have a physical presence in Central New York and align with the mission of the Boilermaker. A maximum of 50 bibs will be available to qualifying charities.

If registrants are participating in the 15k race they must finish in two and a half hours.
