May 2013, Glastonbury, CT – The Hartford Marathon Foundation is accepting nominations for this year’s ING Hartford Marathon Elite Inspiration Team. To celebrate the 20th running of the ING Hartford Marathon, Saturday, October 12, 2013 in Hartford, CT, the 2013 Elite Inspiration Team will represent the overall Marathon theme of ‘Coming Together.’ This year’s nominees will be selected based on their positive contributions to their communities. Candidate profiles must reflect ways in which the runner has been positively linked to a cause or volunteer organization or ways in which the nominee has been an encouraging role model for others.

Nominations will be accepted from runners of any age or skill level participating in the ING Hartford Marathon, Half Marathon or 5K. Runners can nominate themselves or others who they feel fits within the overall theme of coming together to better the community. Elite Inspiration Team members will be provided with Elite level benefits during race weekend including complimentary hotel stay, Pasta Supper and marathon apparel. Nomination forms are available on the ‘events’ page for the ING Hartford Marathon at www.INGHartfordMarathon.com. Nominations are accepted May 3 through June 30. Winners will be notified in July.

The Elite Inspiration Team was created in 2011 to recognize the many amazing personal journeys and experiences that compel runners to take part in the ING Hartford Marathon events.

“We look forward to reviewing nominations each year, it’s both inspiring and humbling to see all the good being done in our communities. The 20th running of the ING Hartford Marathon represents many years of support for charities and communities and we’re excited to have the Elite Inspiration Team represent those efforts.” said Beth Shluger, Executive Director of the Hartford Marathon Foundation. “For the past two years, we’ve had an incredible group of people represent the Elite Inspiration Team. We’re honored they chose to run with us in Hartford and share their incredible personal journeys.”

The ING Hartford Marathon will celebrate its 20th anniversary on Saturday, October 12 in Bushnell Park, Hartford. The event has received national recognition for its commitment to providing all runners with exceptional services, including award-winning post-race food and extensive efforts to off-set the environmental impact of the event. A repeat recipient of recognition by the Road Runners Club of America, the Marathon has earned Regional Championship and National Championship status.
