Runners follow an out-and-back course for the half marathon (and the full marathon and 5K) that starts and finishes near downtown Hartford’s Bushnell Park. From there, the course follows roughly as a clockwise loop through the city, taking runners first along Elm, Jewell and Pearl Streets to State Street for the run across the Founders Bridge. Once over the bridge, the course next heads toward the river and gives runners and walkers their first stretch along the riverfront, including a run through Great River Park.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
