  1. I run a variety of distances and wanted to run the Middletown Half instead of the 4 miler. Is there any option to sub the half while also running O'Hartford and Collinsville and still participate in the Spring Ahead program (to get the medal)?

    1. Hi Alma - Do you have interest in participating in the Triple Half Challenge program, which includes Harvard Pilgrim Middletown Half, Mystic Half and Eversource Hartford Half? There's a medal and jacket provided with that Triple Half Challenge.
      We are posting details on the Spring Ahead: 5K to 10K shortly as well but I don't believe we can swap out different events in that series.
