With a week to go until the Boilermaker Road Race, some runners got to experience the course a little early.

Volunteers and committee members are vital to the success of the Boilermaker, but without an opportunity to run on race day, Sunday’s Committee Run gives them the opportunity to experience the course.

Race Director Jim Stasaitis says the volunteers love the Boilermaker, which is why it’s special they have been given the chance to run it.

Like the official race, those participating in the Committee Run have the option to complete the 15k or 5k runs.

Spectrum News will bring you live coverage of the Boilermaker Road Race next Sunday starting at 7:30 a.m.
