Final Thoughts On Boilermaker 2014 – The Race That Almost Wasn’t Run

2014 Boilermaker Post Race Party
Jeff Monaski, WIBX

Due to the possibility of severe thunderstorms across the Mohawk Valley, the 2014 Boilermaker may be remembered, in part, as the race that almost wasn’t.

However, with the permission of mother nature, the 37th running of the Utica Boilermaker stepped off as scheduled – and was very much like the previous 36. That is without a drop of rain.

Journalist, author, former record setting distance runner and all around expert in the sport, Roger Robinson joins WIBX 950′s Jeff Monaski and Jim Rondenelli for some final thoughts.

Of special interest, Roger says, is that years ago when a race was cancelled, no one seemed to care. But the continually growing sport now attracts so many thousands of athletes and spectators – and provides a tremendous economic impact in their host communities that now all eyes turn to the weather maps to hope the races can step off as planned.
