NEW 4 MILE DISTANCE FOR 2021 – In a break from the Scramble tradition, participants will know the course ahead of time! The route will start and finish at Mortensen Riverfront Plaza, run north toward the Greater Hartford Jaycees Community Boathouse and onto the well maintained trail system in Riverside Park. After a loop in the trails with scenic vistas of the river, a fast finish awaits along the Riverwalk path.
