The Thursday evening summer race tradition is back, with a trail running twist! The Riverfront Scramble new 4 mile race course takes participants from Mortensen Riverfront Plaza along the river to the boathouse and through the trail system of Riverside Park. No surprises (or stairs!), but count on another fun race with a happy hour vibe, complete with an ice cold beer at the end (21+ with ID only).

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.

DETAILS

The race will adhere to state guidelines on outdoor event capacities, beginning with a social distanced race start format. After the race, participants will pick up their beer and spread out to enjoy pre-packaged snacks while soaking in the beauty of the park. Results will be posted online only at the conclusion of the event, times are based on chip time, there will be no gun time. Final results and divisions will be scored to include all runners.
