On July 11, 1998, the National Distance Running Hall of Fame was established to honor the athletes who have made significant contributions to the sport of distance running. It is located in Utica, NY, home of The Boilermaker 15K Road Race, the largest 15K in the nation with nearly 10,000 runners. Visitors to the Hall of Fame will find the history of distance running shown through both the eyes of the runner and spectator. Pictures, memorabilia and awards decorate the exhibit rooms.[1]
