Macdonough Running Club at the Hartford Marathon

If you're looking for something to do tomorrow, head to Hartford and support Middletown's Macdonough School students and teachers as they run in the Hartford Marathon.

Today, the Macdonough student running club, which includes more than 50 students, took their running skills to Hartford's Bushnell Park to participate in the 2009 edition of the ING Run for Something Better Day. Macdonough students have been training at home and school to run 12 miles during the past month. They each ran their last 1.1 "Final Mile", and crossed over the official ING Hartford Marathon Finish Line in Hartford's Bushnell Park to receive a Finisher's Medal.

On Saturday, nearly two dozen teachers and students will be traveling to back to Bushnell Park to join in the running of the 2009 ING Hartford Marathon as part of the Jeff’s Running Partners program. This program encourages children in Connecticut schools and adults to complete either the 13.1 mile Hartford Half Marathon or the full 26.2 Hartford Marathon as part of a relay team.
