The Hartford Marathon and Related Events—Ideal for Every Runner: Run and experience Hartford! This is the 21st annual Hartford Marathon with half marathon, marathon relay, 5K and Kids’ K, Saturday, October 11, 2014. It is a terrific event with many unique features and amenities. It has the best post race food anywhere; it includes a great expo, pasta dinner, a post race beer garden, entertainment, spectator friendly—and scenic—courses, and is one of the greenest marathons in America. The setting is incredible fall foliage and beautiful Bushnell Park in the shadow of the Connecticut State Capitol. By Skip Cleaver.
