Join Team CEF in the 2017 Eversource Hartford Marathon

Darien teacher Katy Gale waves at the start of last year’s Hartford Half Marathon.

Teachers are in it for the long run and in it for the students. And nowhere is that clearer than in the annual Eversource Hartford Marathon, where teachers run, donate, and volunteer to help children in need.

Join the fun this year and support Team CEF on race day—Saturday, October 14. The Connecticut Education Foundation (CEF) is looking for runners to participate in the 5K, relay race, and half or full marathon.

You don’t have to be a runner to be part of the excitement. Volunteers are needed to staff tents, hand out water, and more, and donations to the Connecticut Education Foundation are always welcome.

This is CEF’s fourth year as an Official Charity of the Eversource Hartford Marathon. The Foundation is CEA’s charitable arm and helps teachers and children with extraordinary personal hardships as well as students planning teaching careers.

Team CEF members save $5 on the marathon registration fee. To join Team CEF as a runner or volunteer, contact Jeff Leake at
