2020 race is postponed to 2021, please check email for details.
Achilles International – CT Chapter has determined the best course of action for their 2020 Hope & Possibility 5K and 10K is postponement to 2021. With uncertainty of outdoor event capacities and the utmost sensitivity to the needs of the community which the race is designed to support, Achilles made the difficult decision with the support of the Hartford Marathon Foundation, which produces the annual event on their behalf.
The Achilles Connecticut Hope & Possibility® 5K and 10K is a flat loop course around Bloomfield that also offers a 1.5 mile fitness walk, all in support of a great cause – Achilles Connecticut! #ACTHP
All participants receive a high quality short sleeve technical shirt and custom designed finisher medal.
HMF FitKids: Bring the kids to participate in the HMF FitKids ¼ mile or ½ mile races.
The Hope & Possibility® is the signature race of the not-for-profit Achilles International, headquartered in New York City and with Chapters around the world. The race was founded in 2003 with the remarkable story and recovery of avid runner Trisha Meili, author of I Am the Central Park Jogger: A Story of Hope and Possibility.
The Achilles Connecticut Chapter is excited to bring the Hope & Possibility® brand race back to the Hartford area for the 4th year in a row. The race showcases the differing abilities of athletes of all ages, and shines the spotlight on the power of the human spirit!
