Get your spectators rallied!

They’ve supported you through the training and are going to be cheering you on at the Eversource Hartford Marathon, so let’s help spectators make the most of enjoying your race day too.


Make sure to provide them the link to the “Finding Your Runner” blog, it details all of the tips on where to be and how to get there on the half and full courses.  And, best for spectators to download the mobile app and set up athlete tracking early – it can take up to 48 hours to set up tracking.  

NEW this year – PowerStation Events Final Turn

A great new area for spectator celebrating, PowerStation Events Final Turn will be set up on the corner Pearl and Ford Streets.   With its own stage and entertainment, the Final Turn will provide a huge party area featuring live music from the band Kick.

Spectators can get their cheer cards and re-fuel to help keep up enthusiasm and support runners to the finish.  The Final Turn will host Food Trucks for spectators, featuring:
-Frankie’s - Hot dogs, fries, onion rings, etc.
-The Comfort Zone Food Truck - “Gourmet” soft pretzels and more
-The Sloppy Waffle - Sweet breakfast treats
-Dee’s Flavors - Latin/Spanish dishes
