We cherish the role of producing the go-to CT marathon for 50-staters, of being a bucket list race for local runners and of hosting many long-time repeat participants whose Hartford Marathon medals highlight their bling collections. But we also like hitting the road to enjoy New England running outside of our great state!
In New England, we can enjoy variety in race venues within relatively short travel times. This year, we’re helping you get there. Together with RunVermont, producers of the People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon, we are offering the first-ever "New England Double" package.
Through this unique partnership announced today, runners can earn the “New England Double” distinction by completing the People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon on May 24, 2015, and the Eversource Hartford Marathon on October 10, 2015. Those who register and finish all 52.4 miles will receive a special New England Double Medal (in addition to earning event finisher medals) and a finisher’s hat. Participants in the Double will also enjoy race day perks in a designated location at each event.
The New England Double program will get you access to both marathons with $10 off each event when you register through the program between February 2-15 (on either event's page). Please note - you MUST register for both events through our respective Web sites (but you will receive a discount code that will waive the entry fees already paid when you register for the second event). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with questions or if you have already registered for either marathon individually but would like to add the other and be included in NE Double.
New England Double medals and hats will be available for program participants to pick up in Bushnell Park after they finish the Eversource Hartford Marathon.
Register for the package through hartfordmarathon.com or runvcm.org. Participants must register for the Vermont City Marathon before it sells out or by May 10, whichever comes first - don't delay if you want to run the Double!
