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 10th consecutive year!  This year, more than ever, our fundraising need is critical as we continue to rebuild out of the global pandemic. Achilles Connecticut has a goal of raising a minimum of $20,000; a portion of the funds we raise will cover race registrations, equipment, and travel expenses for our disabled athletes to get to their starting lines in 2024.  Click HERE to make an online donation.

Read below to learn about the fun ways to engage with us leading up to the event and on race day October 14th!


Help us raise $20,000; a portion funds our race season in 2024!  Athletes and guides paired together can help us FUN-draise together.  Build a unique fundraising page or just share ours!  Running the race for yourself (e.g.not guiding) or joining us from another Achilles Chapter?  We welcome you too!  Check out our TEAM ACHILLES VIDEO to see us in action!

Anyone who affiliates with Team Achilles has access to our race day parking lot, 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!  Log into your Rosterfy account to confirm your participation.

As an Official Charity, we are also recruiting 30 volunteers to help at the Expo, baggage in Bushnell Park, and serve as course monitors along the marathon route in East Hartford.

Grab your friends, family, co-workers, run club or gym members, teammates, classmates, etc. and volunteer in support of Achilles! We have many area colleges and businesses who “Adopt Achilles” for the day and give back to the community. Check out this awesome video to learn more about VOLUNTEERING on race day!

All volunteers receive both Achilles and HMF swag.  Join us to be part of the largest running event in Connecticut while supporting a good cause!

This is a great way for your business to support a great cause and have your employees give back to the community.  Check out our Corporate Challenge video to imagine the impact you and your co-workers can make together!

Form a team for those participating, and the business that brings the most employees on race day (as runners, walkers or charity volunteers) will win amazing prizes!  Many companies will donate in honor of your volunteerism or activity; some even make matching gifts!

Gather your run club members, teammates, classmates, and/or gym buddies to run or walk in support of Achilles Connecticut on race day!  As an Official Charity we recruit 50 runners or walkers to participate in one of the distances…many of you are already doing the race so why not band together to make a difference in the community?

Form a team, get creative with a name, and build your fundraising page off our landing page to share.  The team with the most registered participants or race day volunteers will win prizes as our thanks!  HMF can move those already registered internally.  Move with purpose this year and support a great cause…
