Marrone Hopes To Return To Boilermaker
Utica, NY (WIBX) - Syracuse University football coach Doug Marrone is hoping to run the Boilermaker 5-K on Sunday.
Marrone, who underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last month, says his goal is to run the 5-K race and he'll see how his knee feels prior to the event.
He says at the very least, he'll be there to cheer on his wife, who's running the 15-K.
Marrone ran the 5-K race last year.
Meanwhile, Syracuse University will be the official sponsor of the orange slices handed out to the 17,000 finishers of the 5-K and 15-K races.
S-U mascot Otto the Orange is also expected to be at Sunday's race.
