As of June 1: 2020 event plans are being reviewed with municipal and community partners to thoroughly assess all public health considerations. The safety of race participants, volunteers, partners, spectators and staff remains priority as we review opportunities and challenges in staging an event to provide the high quality race experience delivered each year in Hartford. As the event requires months of advance preparation, a decision about the 2020 status will be made shortly to allow all involved the time to plan accordingly.
