Effective May 19, 2021, per order of CT Governor Ned Lamont, face masks will not be required at outdoor events in Connecticut. Keeping with state recommendations, runners, volunteers, spectators and staff will not be required to wear masks at any Hartford Marathon Foundation (HMF) event. We encourage those more comfortable wearing masks to continue to do so and urge unvaccinated participants attending HMF Events to wear a face mask for their own safety and for the safety of those who have vulnerable conditions or weakened immune systems.
HMF will continue to maintain safety protocols at all events, including hand washing and sanitizing stations, modified water distribution and spacing of start and finish areas to allow social distance.
Enjoy running Middletown’s bucolic roads and Wesleyan University campus to finish downtown on historic Main Street with a festive fall spin for Halloween! Both races loop around Wesleyan campus, while the BOOtiful Run/Walk finishes, the 10-mile takes a loop through Wadsworth State Forest.
All finishers receive a high quality long sleeve technical shirt and a flashy medal. Costumes encouraged in the BOOtiful Run/Walk, a 3.56 mile event open to all ages and abilities.
Give Back: Please help give back to the community that this event takes place in. Donations of nonperishable food will be collected at the packet pickups and on race day through the HMF Can drive, supported by Stop & Shop. The collection will benefit The Amazing Grace Food Pantry, which provides groceries to more than 1,000 very low-income households each month.
There are NO REFUNDS of registration fees, however, participants may choose to defer their race registration for any reason up to 14 days before the event. Policy Details
