PROgressive Series - 5K, 10K & Half Marathon!

You CAN run your first half marathon - we will get you there with our new PROgressive Series, a unique three-race challenge that brings you from 5K to 10K to Half Marathon between July and October.

If you've run 5Ks, maybe even some longer race distances, and are looking for a support program and incentive to take on 13.1 miles, this program is for you.  We make it simple, providing a free training guide, discounted race entry and some extra bling - a commemorative PRO Series finisher medal.  You can register all at once here for the program to run a 5K with us in July, a 10K in August and then the Eversource Hartford Half Marathon on October 10.  There's an option to participate in our group training program (fees apply), which provides experienced coaches, a supportive group environment and a training program shirt.

Run one of our July 5Ks, you can choose from the July 11th Red Dress Run for Women, the July 16 Rentschler Airfield 5K or the second Riverfront Scramble on July 23.

You will then run the Old Wethersfield 10K with us on August 23.  This double-loop course is flat and fast, a great way to increase race mileage in preparation for your ultimate goal.  After your 10K, you'll focus and follow our weekly mileage guide to finish the Eversource Hartford Half Marathon on October 10.  Your finish line awaits you in Bushnell Park, with incredibly supportive crowds, great course amenities and a huge post-race bash.

REGISTER HERE, you will be provided all of the options through this link to add the PRO Series events.  To add the PRO Series group training, please register separately here.

If you've already registered for one of the events and want to add the PRO Series, contact (please allow at least two business days for response).


  1. What a great idea! Can you sign up for this series even if you have previously run a half marathon?

  2. I emailed registration on Friday! I signed up for the Hartford Half and Red Dress already, I just need the Wethersfield 10k! This is so awesome and motivating! This will be my first half marathon

  3. What if I ran the Hartford half last year, can I still register?
