New England Double - #RunHartford and #RunVermont

***UPDATED 6/1/16***

We are excited to offer the Eversource Hartford Marathon as part of an enhanced "New England Double" 2016 marathon package, together with RunVermont, producers of the People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon.  Please note, the registration process for the program has been updated.

Runners earn the “New England Double” distinction by completing the May 29th People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon and the October 8th Eversource Hartford Marathon.  Those who register for the program and finish all 52.4 miles will receive a special New England Double medal (in addition to earning event finisher medals) and a commemorative finisher jacket. 

Registration Requirements 
You must register for both events directly on our respective race Web sites and then simply choose the option to add the New England Double program within each event’s registration process.  Once you register for both events with the option, you’re in!

If you already registered for the New England Double program but were cut off from finishing on 5/29 due to the extreme weather, you will still be included in the program as long as you passed the 13.1 split time.

If you ran in Vermont and want to add the New England Double but have not registered for the program yet, you may add the New England Double through the Eversource Hartford Marathon registration process.

There are no event or race distance substitutions allowed.  You must complete both the People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon and the Eversource Hartford Marathon to receive the New England Double medal and jacket.

Participants must register for the Vermont City Marathon before it sells out or by May 29, whichever comes first - don't delay if you want to run the Double!

New England Double medals and jackets will be available for program participants to pick up in Bushnell Park after they finish the Eversource Hartford Marathon on October 8. 


  1. I am unable to compete in the Vermont City Marathon for 2016 but I am interested in doing so in 2017. I am already signed up for the 2016 Hartford Marathon. Is it possible to complete the New England Double by completing Hartford 2016/Vermont 2017? Or must they both be done in the same year? Thanks!

    1. Hi Scott-

      When you register for VT it asks if you're starting or completing your New England double, so it's definitely an option. The race organizers are also very responsive if you have questions. You could always send a note to confirm!

  2. Hello I'm just wondering how I can confirm that I am indeed signed up for the New England double? I know I have signed up for both a while ago and I'm pretty sure I hit the New England double button but I want to make sure. Thanks

  3. I am doing Vermont City, but didn't click the New England Double button during registration (I didn't know what it was at the time). I just registered for Hartford and clicked the New England Double. Am I still able to participate in the New England Double?
