In 1994, a small group of runners started a legacy in Hartford when they committed to staging the inaugural Hartford Marathon and Half Marathon. Over the next 25 years, more than 194,370 finishers have collectively run 2,392,415 miles on the streets of Hartford, East Hartford, South Windsor and West Hartford.
Through the echoes of their footsteps, the marathon has emerged as more than a 26.2-mile footrace. It is a powerful story of how a few dedicated citizens and a simple road race can unite and energize a community. We hope you will join us on October 13, 2018 to celebrate the achievements of our runners and the history of our race.
