Your Arch Awaits…get back to it!

The premier marathon event in Connecticut is back and better than ever in 2022!

The 26.2 mile marathon course will remain much the same as it has since its inception, starting in front of the majestic Capitol in Hartford, running through East Hartford along the river and then up to South Windsor and back to finish just past the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Arch in Bushnell Park.

The 13.1 mile half marathon course will return to West Hartford, breaking from the marathon around mile 1 and looping through Elizabeth Park before heading back to finish in Hartford.

The 3.1 mile Charity 5K course will run through downtown. It’s a fast race for competitive runners that also welcomes casual runners and walkers to accomplish goals finishing under the arch.

Team 26.2 Relay is also returning with options for 2-5 team members to run in legs along the marathon course.

With new free training programs through Bird Coaching that start in June, race participants are supported on their mission to finish under the arch. Marathon training sign-up / Half Marathon training sign-up
