The 2020 Eversource Hartford Marathon
is going virtual! The four day event will take place from October 8th
and include a new 10K race distance, the 5K race and three new multi-distance race challenges to engage widespread participation. Every penny of the $25 individual race registration
fee will be donated to the event’s official charities
, which support urgent local needs.
Participants who are competitive runners or those looking for some extra motivation can elect one of three multi-distance challenges in the Sam Adams Challenge Series: the Tenacious 2 (5K and 10K), the Driven by Purpose 3 (5K, 10K, half marathon) or the Grit & Gutsy 4, the ultimate 4-race challenge (5K, 10K, half marathon and full marathon). There is an additional $10 fee to opt into a challenge, and participants will receive a special custom finisher medal for the challenge.
