At The Marathon: Rotaract Club Joins Hartford Rotary At Mile 5 Water Station

The founders and students of Capital Community College’s Rotaract Club joined Hartford Rotarians at  last Saturday’s 21st running of the Hartford Marathon  volunteering at the mile 5 water table for the 26.2 mile race.

More than 15,000 runners participated in the full marathon, half marathon and 5k races at the city’s biggest sporting event of the year.  They were supported by a small army of volunteers during the Columbus Day weekend event, including Rotary and Rotaract members. The Rotary Club of Hartford has participated in most of the Hartford marathons since the race began in 1993 and has been the sponsor of the Sheldon Street water station over the last five years.
