At this year's Boilermaker Road Race, M&T Bank will be helping cheer on the runners with the M&T Cheer Zone and the M&T Cowbell!

The M&T Cheer Zone starts at the 8-mile mark of the race on Whitesboro Street where 2,000 cowbells will be handed out to spectators.

Be sure to pick up your cowbell and join the more than 50 M&T employees providing energetic support to the Boilermaker runners.

Here's a preview of the cowbell in action here at TownSquare Media Utica.

Happy Boilermaker 2016!
