It's On. Are You In?

Thanks so much to everyone who came out yesterday and to those who liked, shared or commented on our NU Hartford Marathon announcement updates and showed us support.  We are excited to harness all of this positive momentum to create new programs, grow in areas we've heard positive feedback on and tweak what we can to continue to do better for the runners, charities, communities and kids we work to support.

We wanted to share a few photo highlights of our announcement event.  And as a show of thanks to everyone who registers by May 31, we'll be sending you a car cling (for bragging rights, of course!).

Thanks again and please check back for some fun new promotions and contests we'll be running on Facebook and Twitter to recognize "What powers your run".

  1. This is a great venue. Very spacious and great views of the city from the rooftop. I can definitely see why the elite have their weddings here. A beautiful space overall.
