The Hartford Marathon Foundation is pleased to announce the final selection of nine runners to participate in the 2013 ING Hartford Marathon Aiello Elite Inspiration Team. The ‘Come Together’ theme of the ING Hartford Marathon’s 20th running highlights camaraderie, commitment to charity and community involvement, which was also reflected in this year’s team. Nominations were submitted on behalf of participants that have made positive contributions to their communities and serve as an inspiration to many. More information on the team is available at, http://bit.ly/14ch7yk.
The ING Hartford Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K events will take place on Saturday, October 12, 2013 in Bushnell Park, Hartford. Members of the Aiello Elite Inspiration Team will receive special VIP treatment including VIP tickets to the Pasta Supper at The Hartford Club, a special Aiello Elite Team Jacket and VIP access on race morning. Additionally, the team will be profiled in New England Runner magazine and the ING Hartford Marathon Insider’s Guide.
The Hartford Marathon Foundation is joined by Aiello Home Services, sponsor of the team, in the effort to recognize individuals whose determination and perseverance serve as an inspiration and motivation for others.
“Each year, we hear about so many challenges that our runners overcome and so many significant feats, yet they rarely receive recognition for the accomplishments or their incredible contributions,” said Beth Shluger, Executive Director of the Hartford Marathon Foundation. “We created the Elite Inspiration Team two years ago to honor and recognize the amazing people who run our events, they inspire us all to live better and to be better. We’re humbled to have these athletes join us to celebrate our 20th running.”
“We are proud to be one of the sponsors of the ING Hartford Marathon and in particular to have the opportunity to honor the members of this year’s Elite Inspiration Team. Their lives inspire us all and we salute their individual achievements and their dedication to do good in our communities,” said Michael Jezouit, President of Aiello Home Services.
