Utica, NY (WIBX) - One Boilermaker volunteer is being rewarded for going the extra mile.

Mark Denbrow, the Race's Finish Line Director and a long-time volunteer, is the 2012 recipient of the "Coach D" Award.

The award is named after Coach Peter DeStefano, the former Finish Line Director who was known for staying at his post until the last runner crossed the finish line.
