UTICA, N.Y. – The countdown is on. The Boilermaker Road Race is one week from Sunday, and a record number of runners have already registered. According to race spokesperson Mary MacEnroe, a record 12,974 people have registered for the 15k race.

To make sure the course is in perfect shape for the record field, members of the Boilermaker Race Committee went on their annual pre-race run early Saturday morning.

A week before the 33rd Boilermaker Road Race, comes the 33rd Boilermaker Committee Run. Sixteen members ran the entire race. Boilermaker Race Executive Director Tim Reed says many of these members have ran this pre race run every year since the race began in 1978.

By committee, a foursome crossed the finish line in front of the brewery together Saturday morning. Reeds says the members say the course looks in great shape.

Here are the latest numbers on registration for the 33rd Boilermaker.

12,974 have signed up for the 15k, 2,421 for the 5k, 434 for the NEWSChannel 2 8k walk and 20 for the wheelchair division.

MacEnroe says that’s a 13% in the 15k number of registrants and up 21% in 5k.

Its an honor for me to participate in this years boilermaker, an outstanding event in central new york. I (DJ 808 aka Bobby Bounce) will be spinning live on the one’s and two’s along with my company, Upstate Vibe Entertainment on the route (1400 Whitesboro St.) playing a wide variety of music to pump up the runners and show my support. There will be approx. 30,000 people involved in this road race (participants, spectators, entertainment, media outlets, and volunteers). This will be my biggest event of the year for 2010. I wanna thank everyone who helped make this happen for me. For more info go to See ya there!

Shouts out to all the runners and to all the great volunteers….
