Hartford Marathon, Half Marathon, Relay & 5K

Saturday, October 19, 2024 • Hartford, CT

The premier marathon and half marathon in Connecticut is a fall celebration not to be missed – and it’s on a new weekend in 2024. Set your calendar for the third Saturday of October (in observance of the Jewish high holiday) and get ready to achieve greatness!

Be inspired with the glorious start in front of the majestic Capitol and the iconic finish line under the Arch at the Eversource Hartford Marathon and Half Marathon. The beloved New England road race tradition continues to deliver a top-notch experience with the highest level of safety and security for race participants, volunteers, spectators and the community. Both marathon and half marathon courses will venture into the welcoming neighborhoods of West Hartford, full of cheering race spectators, with a short pass through beautiful Elizabeth Park.

The 13.1 mile course will run with the marathon to West Hartford and split back in Hartford, about 8 miles in, before half marathoners enjoy a run along the river. The downtown Hartford finish delivers that joyous and memorable moment crossing under the Arch, along brilliantly colored mums lining the path. A memorable experience awaits, with meaningful swag, well supported courses, thorough medical and security services and a great celebration in store.

    It says the half marathon time limit is 3 hours but the results show lots of people going over that time. If I usually do 3:10 to 3:20, would I be okay?
