My Favorites

This year for the very first time, through a partnership with the Hartford Marathon Foundation (HMF), I would like to introduce you to Donny’s Dash, a 5K, kid’s fun run & walk. UCONN legend and Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford Board of Trustees member Donny Marshall will host the inaugural event on November 5 at Simsbury Meadows & Performing Arts Center.

There will be fun activities, music, food and more! Proceeds from this community outreach event support our Clubs. You can be involved in many ways – run, walk, fundraise or donate on behalf of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford.

Do you like giving back? Help at the registration table, be a course monitor, hand out water along the course, help feed the participants and more! Being a volunteer comes with some perks:

volunteer t-shirt, coffee and breakfast upon arrival at Volunteer Check-in, post-race food and Fest, $5 credit ($10 for Course Monitors) towards future Hartford Marathon Foundation events (may be transferred to family/friends)

To learn more or become a volunteer:

Hope to see you at the finish line. We look forward to a fun, special and successful 5K.
