The Boilermaker is a niche event. While it is known nationwide, it's only known pretty much in the serious running community.

Ask yourself this. The Peachtree road race takes place in Atlanta just before the Boilermaker each year. If you know that it's probably because it's in news reports about the Boilemaker every year. The public at large nationwide doesn't know either.

I think the question asked is about most people nationwide and not just a small group like runners. It's like this. If you asked a man on the street anywhere in the country to name something about Syracuse they would likely answer SU. Albany?, the capital of New York. New York City? Wall Street, Empire State Building, Radio City Music Hall.....

Utica has absolutely nothing of that maganatude. Nothing that the average Joe on the street would know. Just ask anyone who's travelled and had to explain to someone where Utica is. My standard answer is "upstate, near Syracuse.

Yeah...the boilermaker is so well known, aside from the local media, NONE of the national media or sports media (ESPN,NESN etc.) cover it. Its the local celebs like Kristin Copeland and Jason Powles that go orgasmic over this nonsense.

Oneida County's best days are long behind it. I would know--I was alive then!

When people think of Oneida County TODAY--and the county seat being Utica--that's when they realize it is time to change the topic of conversation.

It's what people speaking in polite company would do today.

Don't bring up backward Oneida County; it's the land that time forgot!

Progress in this area is also defined when joe goof-o proposes new idiotic laws to make it look like he's earning his bloated salary for the career politician that he is.
