Note: If you designate another person to pick up your packet, your designee must bring a waiver/permission slip signed by you and a copy of your photo ID in order to obtain your packet. The permission slip is included at the bottom of the Running Event Waiver.

Mail Packet Option

Due to the tremendous popularity of the NU Hartford Marathon and the staggering amount of race day logistics, we will not offer race day registration or packet pickup. We realize that this puts a burden on those participants who plan to come into Hartford on race day only. For the convenience of those runners, we are offering a mail option for packets. The cost for this service is $15 per packet and must be reserved by September 7, 2015.

You must register to have your race packet mailed to you. During the online registration process, select the "Register Now" link and register for one of the NU Hartford Marathon races. If you missed the Mail My Packet option during online registration, you may still add it until September 7, 2015 by clicking here.

If you have added the Mail My Packet option to your registration, please notify us of any address changes so that you will not have difficulty receiving your packet in advance of the race.

Relay Team Members

Relay Team members will pick up their packets at the Registration Solutions Desk at either of the Health & Fitness Expo dates. One member of the team may pick up with package for the entire group. However, that person will need a signed waiver/permission slip and copy of photo ID for each team member in order to receive the entire team package. The permission slip is included at the bottom of the Running Event Waiver. It will then be up to the team to distribute the bibs to each team member and be sure that the participant who will be crossing the finish line is wearing the timing chip bib.

For Relay Team members who are picking up their own individual bibs, please know in advance your team name and which relay leg you are running so that the timing chip bib can be given to the participant who will be crossing the finish line.

Kids K

Note:  Registration for the Kids K will be accepted on Race day from 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM in Bushnell Park at the Kids K Registration Tent located on the Pump House side of the park.
