Erie Canal Bicentennial



The Erie Canal Half Marathon started as The National Distance Running Hall of Fame Race and was established in 1999 by the Utica Roadrunners.  In 2016, the race became the Erie Canal Half and the focus has shifted to celebrating Utica's rich history by showcasing its oldest and most exciting neighborhood, Bagg's Square, as well as the Erie Canal, the engineering marvel that put Utica on the map!  The race has also transformed into a weekend event, encompassing a kid's run and expo.  The event is organized by the Boilermaker Road Race, which also puts on the world famous Boilermaker 15k in July.
