Eversource Hartford Marathon & Half Marathon

We are thrilled to be a Gold-Tier Official Charity Partner of the Eversource Hartford Marathon and Half Marathon for the 9th consecutive year. This year, more than ever, our fundraising need is critical. Achilles has a goal of raising $10,000…as you know, we are a small nonprofit with a BIG mission!   Click HERE to make a donation. 

Read below to see the fun ways to engage with us leading up to the event and on race day October 8th!


Help us raise $10,000 which funds our race season in 2023!  Athletes and guides paired together can help us FUN-draise together.  Build a team page or just share ours!  Running the race for yourself (not guiding)?  You can still run with Team Achilles…check out our VIDEO to see us in action! 

Anyone who affiliates with us has access to our team tent and private portalets in Bushnell Park, plus if you help us fundraise you are entered to win cool prizes and swag!  Hit your minimum and we reimburse your registration!  For more information email events@achillesct.org
