A Sunday morning summer race tradition returns! Run the single-loop 5K or double-loop 10K through historic, quaint streets with finish in scenic Wethersfield Cove on an unpaved trail along the water. Spread out and recover post-race in the grass with packaged snacks and hydrate with the custom, Big Mouth water bottle participants earn for swag.

Take part in the L+M Summer Stride 5K or 10K in July and the Old Wethersfield 5K or 10K in August and also earn the 2 Hot Challenge medal!

Give Back: Please help give back to the community that this event takes place in. Donations of nonperishable food will be collected on race day through the HMF Can drive, supported by Stop & Shop. The collection will benefit Foodshare, which provides assistance to those families in need in Greater Hartford.

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

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.
