#RedDressRun. This women’s 5K is welcoming to all ages and abilities, encouraging participants to achieve goals and celebrate fitness.

The 3.1 mile women’s race starts and finishes in the beautiful Elizabeth Park Rose Garden and offers a friendly and inspiring environment. The event is great for teams to come together and race as a group or for mother-daughter teams to compete together. Prizes are awarded for team divisions (see team FAQ under the “Races” menu tab for the 5K). HMF FitKids races also available.

Enjoy post-race party in the park with music, fresh food, festive awards and a Finish Line Village of tents with goods and services especially for women interested in health and fitness.

RUN FOR A CAUSE

Your Steps Can Help Others! HMF Events is proud to partner with Girls on the Run Greater Hartford. Their ten-week program for girls in grades 3-6 helps develop and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. Your generosity will help Girls on the Run raise $5,000 for two teams for Fall Season 2018 and Spring 2019. Many girls need financial assistance; this will cover the program fee for up to 30 girls to participate at little to no cost. Girls on the Run is the only curriculum based positive youth development running program in the Greater Hartford area.

Runners can utilize CrowdRise to create a team to fundraise for Girls on the Run or make a one-time donation.

Additional charities using this race as a fundraiser can be found on the Red Dress Run CrowdRise page.
