The Boilermaker Road Race is truly a family event. One family has been running the Boilermaker together for more than a decade.

How far would you drive to run a 15K? For Bonnie Galinski and her family the answer is all the way from East Kingston, New Hampshire.

Every year the Galinski family meets in Utica to run the Boilermaker as one big group.

All together the Galinski's have seven family members running this weekend including two younger children who will be participating in the Kid's Run.

The Galinski's started running as a family almost 15 years ago, and immediately became hooked.

18 year-old Kaitlin Galinski is in town for her third Boilermaker and says she loves running the race. The family will be complete tomorrow when Bonnie's sister arrives in Utica from New Jersey.

Since the Galinski's are from New England, they had one more thing to say about this weekend's Boilermaker.
