Prize Money to the top finishers. More…

Separate Prize Money awarded to top New England’s Finest finishers. More..

Monetary awards are based on official “gun” time – the time elapsed from the official start signal to each runners’ B-Tag recording at the finish.

Commemorative awards (based on “net” time) to top 3 male/females in following divisions:

  • Age groups: 16-19, 5-year age groups from 20-80+
  • Clydesdale/Athena
  • Physically Challenged
  • Push-rim wheelchair (no awards in the hand-crank division)
  • Visually Impaired/Blind Runners division

No “double-dipping” in awards.


Marathon finishers can use “net” time for qualifying for the Boston Marathon. Net time starts as runners leave the start line and B-Tag is noted, so this time shows actual time on the course. Results are automatically sent to the B.A.A. from the Hartford Marathon Foundation.


No strollers, bicycles, rollerblades, skateboards, or motorized vehicles. No dogs. No unregistered runners. We discourage the use of headphones.


Entertainment information coming in 2018.
