Mission Statement

The Hartford Marathon Foundation is a 501(c)(3) , not for profit organization, founded in 1994 and located in Glastonbury, Connecticut, USA.

Its mission is to organize programs and events that promote health, fitness and enjoyment for participants of all ages and experience levels. Over 60,000 people participate annually in HMF events.

Since 1994, the HMF has injected over $25.3 million into the Hartford area and has raised over $3 million for dozens of community charities. Since 1998, over 6,000 adults and children have participated in Hartford Marathon Foundation Training programs designed to help people begin or build a running or walking program.

The Hartford Marathon Foundation will take all possible measures to reduce its carbon footprint and will promote, educate and encourage all participants, volunteers and spectators to do the same. With the goal of becoming the most sustainable athletic event in the country, the ING Hartford Marathon has named former title sponsor United Technologies as their Presenting Green Sponsor. The water bubbler designed and built by UTC engineers and powered by Vital Water saved 20,000 plastic bottles from the local landfill since 2007.


Volunteers are needed at every race to help with registration, course monitors, water stations and the Finish Line. Pre-race help is also needed before each event at packet pickup locations.

The success of any of our events is directly related to the generous spirit of our amazing volunteer team. We are grateful for any time that you can donate to our events. .
