Hartford Marathon Reviews


4.9 Stars from 7 Runners

Review

Great race on a relatively flat course, good race support and nice scenery.


Race Tips

If you have someone for race support have them stand at mile 12, once you pass they can walk across the street to meet you at mile 22. They'll be able to walk to mile 12 before you arrive and walk back from mile 22 to the finish line before you get back.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

We arrived from the east at 7:00 AM and didn't encounter any traffic.

Very well organized. Option to have bib, shirt, and bag for checking clothes on race day sent to you in advance for nominal fee. Great food and drink at finish. Good Gatorade, water, and Gu service on route. A great value for the $. Also nice that it's on the holiday weekend, so you have more time to travel and recover, even if getting there on Friday from anywhere in the tri- state area will test your patience.


Race Tips

Mostly flat. Ramps and bridges are the only real hills. Most hotels offer late checkout, so you can grab a shower after the race without staying an extra day. Don't wait too late to check bag. There was a huge bottleneck during the last 30-40 minutes before the start. The half and full marathons start together and split after a few miles. Be careful not to get caught on the wrong side of the street at the split. I almost got stuck on the half marathon side.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Lots of parking right near the start. Some is free. Most is not. Expect to pay $10 for the open lots nearest the start. Some service stations at same location also offer $10 parking. City Steam brewery was a post- race hit. Kids liked the science vented. Bring your bib for a discount.
