This past weekend, PUMA sponsored the 2010 Boilermaker 15K Road Race in Utica, New York! This year the event had over 11,000 finishers - it?s largest number of runners since 1978! There were two new course records set by both the top male and female. Lelisa Desisa of Ethipia was the first male finishing in 42:46 (8 seconds less than what was set by the previous winner). Edna Kiplagat of Kenya was the first female finishing in 47:57.

PUMA was the official supplier of footwear, apparel, and accessories. All event volunteers sported the latest gear while selling co-branded Boilermaker/PUMA apparel on-site. At the race, we showcased the brand’s newest Complete Running styles, the Vectana 2 and Velosis 2. The Vectana 2 is our latest stability shoe, while the Velosis 2 is a neutral trainer. The iconic PUMA Cat was displayed prominently throughout the event, particularly at the high profile start and finish areas. PUMA also offered race participants and attendees a full brand experience with games, music, and prizes. The PUMA Speed Trap was on-site giving runners a chance to compete to see who could run at the fastest speed.
