NEW DISTANCE! A BOOtiful race, the Harvard Pilgrim Middletown 10K/5K is a Halloween run and walk event for the whole family. Get in the spirit with the costume contest, post-race treats and HMF FitKids run for the little ones.

Both races loop around Wesleyan campus, while the 5K finishes, the 10K takes another loop before a fast downhill finish on Main Street.

All finishers receive a high quality technical shirt and a festive Halloween medal. Costumes DEFINITELY encouraged!

Be a part of the race tradition and donate nonperishable food to benefit The Amazing Grace Food Pantry, which provides groceries to more than 1,000 low-income households each month in the Middletown area. The HMF Can drive is supported by Stop & Shop. Thank you!

HMF continues to closely monitor best safety practices for outdoor events and plan race details following state and local guidelines. Currently, face masks are not required at outdoor events in Connecticut. If race modifications are required, details will be updated on site pages and via email to all registered participants.

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.
