The premier marathon and half marathon in Hartford welcomes runners back this fall. The Eversource Hartford Marathon and Half Marathon iconic finish line under the Arch will inspire you. Feel the power!

The 26.2 mile marathon course starts in front of the majestic Capitol in Hartford, running through East Hartford, showcasing the heart of the city and breathtaking views from both sides of the Connecticut River. Runners then head into the rural and scenic town of South Windsor, where the course highlights its quintessential New England charm and journey back to Hartford to finish just past the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Arch in Bushnell Park. Enjoy ample course support, cheering volunteers and beautiful fall race.

The 13.1 mile half marathon course will return to West Hartford, breaking from the marathon around mile 1. Runners will enjoy this rolling course as they travel through historic neighborhoods and beautiful Elizabeth Park, before returning to downtown Hartford to finish under the historic Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch in Bushnell Park.

The 3.1 mile Charity 5K course will run through downtown. It’s a fast race for competitive runners that also welcomes casual runners and walkers to accomplish goals finishing under the arch.

Team 26.2 Relay is also returning with options for 2-5 team members to run in legs along the marathon course.
