Santa Clauses coming to town
Over 600 participants joined in the Hartford Marathon Foundation's inaugural New London Run for a Claus race on Sunday, December 9, 2018. The 2.5 mile run, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Covenant Shelter of New London, started on Bank St. and proceeded to Fort Trumbull and back downtown.
A half-mile fur run will for children aged 2-11 preceeded the main event.
The race is part of HMF's new HO HO HOliday series, a three-race challenge that included the Norwich Winterfest 5K on Dec. 1 and the Blue Back Mitten Run in West Hartford on Dec. 2. Each event benefits a community organization and has a donation drive. Series participants receive a holiday ornament in addition to swag at each event.
Entry in the race includes a complete Santa suit and a post-race party at Hot Rod Cafe.
