Registration for any Hartford Marathon Foundation (HMF) event is non-refundable. However, if registered for an event and unable to participate, registrants may defer entry for credit to a future event (deferment must be made no later than 14 days before race date) or transfer the registration directly to another runner.

HMF virtual events give participants the flexibility to participate when and where it is convenient. As such, there are no refunds and no deferments for virtual events. For complete details on HMF deferments/transfers and all policies, click here.

Note – due to the limited capacity for the event and additional resources required to execute safety measures, there will be no discounted pricing offered for youth or groups.


All participants must show a Photo ID to pick up race packets (parent/guardian of minors must show ID).

Your packet includes your race bib, timing chip and your Santa Suit.

Race Day: 9:30 – 10:30 AM, Race Start Area, Bank Street, New London

Note: To designate someone to pick up another runner’s race packet, designee must bring a hard copy of this signed waiver/permission slip (included at the bottom of the Running Event Waiver) and a copy of runner’s photo ID. Photocopies or phone pictures of photo ID will be accepted.
