On your marks! Get set! Go virtual!
This year the 2020 Boilermaker was held virtually in locations all around the world and now it’s time to celebrate. The Boilermaker Road Race is pleased to announce that they are premiering the first virtual Saranac post-race party on Tuesday, October 20th.
The virtual event, which is one of the first and largest of its kind in the industry, will be held on the Boilermaker Road Race YouTube channel and will officially mark end of the 2020 Virtual Boilermaker Road Race. There will be access to pre-party activities at 6:45pm, but the event will officially begin at 7:00pm and is expected to last for approximately 45 minutes.
“One of the guiding principles we had as we navigated the Boilermaker through this unprecedented challenge, was to make the virtual version as traditional as possible. We were able to do that with important pieces such as the Wheelchair Challenge, Charity Bib program and the Corporate Cup Challenge. Being able to unveil the iconic Saranac Post Race Party, the largest in all of road racing, in a virtual format is the final piece to the puzzle. We are extremely grateful to all who have contributed to making this a reality and trust that Boilermaker Nation enjoys the show.” – Boilermaker President, Mark Donovan.
Activities will include musical acts, messages from Boilermaker staff, dignitaries, as well as, running icons Kathrine Switzer and Bill Rodgers. There will also be recognition of the award winners and participants from the race. All participants and spectators of the race are welcome to attend.
