Run For Good

Runners are motivated people who have an incredible commitment to achieving goals – running for charity is a natural fit.  We truly appreciate your efforts and have two opportunities to reward our participants for their efforts to “Run for Good”, whether for one of the 20 Official Charities or another worthy cause that is personally meaningful.

HMF Run for Good sign-up
All participants in the October 10th Eversource Hartford Marathon, Half Marathon, 5K and Team Relay are encouraged to run for causes.  In appreciation of those charity runners, HMF and Eversource will give an exclusive marathon tote bag to the first 1,000 registered runners who sign up for the HMF Run for Good program. Continuing the commitment to environment and sustainable practices, HMF and Eversource had the specialty bags created out of branded mesh fencing recycled from the 2014 Hartford Marathon finish line.  Sign up through this form to report charity support and receive a bag (only registered runners of the 2015 event are eligible to receive a bag).

Aiello Inspiration Team
We are calling on athletes who dedicate efforts for community or charitable causes to submit an application to the Aiello Inspiration Team at the Eversource Hartford Marathon and Half Marathon.  This team of inspirational and motivational athletes will represent the best examples of what it means to “run for good.”   Candidate submissions must reflect the ways in which the runner has been positively linked to these initiatives.

Runners of any age or skill level can nominate themselves or others who they feel represent inspiring qualities.  Nominees must be participating in the October 10th Eversource Hartford Marathon, half marathon, relay or 5K.

Aiello Inspiration Team members will be provided with elite level benefits during race weekend including complimentary hotel stay (for those 50+ miles from Hartford), Pasta Supper tickets and marathon apparel.  Additionally, they will receive a complimentary PRE Perks package (value $65) including limited access parking adjacent to the start/finish line, Mail My Packet service to receive bib and shirt in late September, personalized bib, access to pre-race VIP area and personal baggage check.

Thanks to Aiello Home Services
for their support of the program!
Nomination forms are available on the Eversource Hartford Marathon and Half Marathon Registration Tab under Aiello Inspiration Team. Nominations will be accepted through July 15. A panel committee will review applications and winners will be notified in late July.
