HMF Girl Squad has formed to bring women together to train, encourage and help each other as they prepare for the Eversource Hartford Marathon this fall.

Joining Girl Squad is FREE and open to women of all ages and all abilities.

10 Reasons to Join:

De-stress time – Run it out together and leave it all behind for an hour (or two) without guilt.
Safety in numbers – The squad will connect you with others to run with where and when you want.
Cheer Squad – More people to celebrate with you and boost you up when needed.
