Event summary

This festive family 5K tradition welcomes runners and walkers of all ages and abilities to celebrate the season as a community. The 5K winds through West Hartford neighborhoods, lined with homes decorated for the holidays and festive shop windows. Bring the kids to participate in the HMF FitKids run- a ½ mile or one mile dash to Blue Back Square. #MittenRun Please help give back to the community that has opened their streets for participants. Donations of new mittens, scarves or hats will be collected on race day. This year, we’re asking you to “stuff the mittens” with a small cash donation (checks also welcome and made payable to The Town That Cares Fund, a program of the Town of West Hartford’s Department of Human and Leisure Services.)
