Run or walk the 5K with us, or run the Relay, Half Marathon or Marathon at the Eversource Hartford Marathon on Saturday, October 13, 2018.
We are excited to be forming our first ever Heads Up! Hartford team - "15 Years & Running" - to raise funds to operate our service camp in 2019. Our goal is to create a team of at least 50 walkers and runners with you – our current and former campers, camp counselors, parents, volunteers, donors, and friends – to raise $15,000 which equates to 25% of the cost of operating our service camp in 2019. Please consider joining us!
In addition to runners and walkers, we are looking for community partners to sponsor our Heads Up! Hartford 2018 Hartford Marathon Team. With your help, we can continue to harness the power of unity to elevate our community. The link to sponsor information is available to the right.
As a team member, you will get a fabulous Heads Up! Hartford "15 Years & Running" 2018 Hartford Marathon team t-shirt to wear on race day! And you will be part of an awesome team of people uniting together to help Heads Up! Hartford continue to promote diversity, develop collaborative leaders, and strengthen our community.
Two Easy Steps:
(1) Set up your fundraiser under the Heads Up! Hartford Marathon Event page on CrowdRise at https://www.crowdrise.com/HUH15YearsRunning . Click on "Set Up Your Fundraiser", then "Start Your Own Fundraiser" and add your campaign name (be creative!) and story. Add a picture and start fundraising. Strive to raise the minimum goal of $75 (youth) or $150 (adult) - or really knock it out of the park and raise more than the minimum! Follow our Facebook event page for fundraising tips. (Coming soon!) Encourage your friends to join your team – there’s no limit to how many people can participate.
(2) Once you are set up on Crowdrise, be sure to visit the Hartford Marathon registration page at https://www.hartfordmarathon.com/eversource-hartford-marathon-2/runners/registration/ and click on "Register Now" at the top of the page to officially register for the race of your choice (5K walk/run, half marathon, full marathon or relay team) – you must register by September 14, 2018. Adults can use our group discount code of HEADSUPHARTFORD (all CAPS, no spaces) to receive a $5 discount (student and youth fees are already discounted).
We will meet on race day at a designated location to unite with the other members of our team. You'll have a supportive community to cheer you on the day of the race, and enjoy the satisfaction of having assisted us in raising funds to operate our camp in 2019!
We are looking for community partners to sponsor our inaugural Hartford Marathon team. Please consider sponsoring us!
