About Team MAD

Team M.A.D. was formed by an ad hoc group of dedicated people in 2006 and is a 501(c)(3)! As a team, we train runners and non-runners to be able to complete a half marathon (13.1 miles) or a full marathon (26.2 miles) while raising money for our annually designated charity. Our goal is to support local charities in reaching their full potential while providing a safe and memorable experience for our runners.

Eversource Hartford Marathon and Half Marathon held in October is our annual event.

As a runner for Team MAD you will receive the support, encouragement and training to be able to safely complete your event. Notice we did not say easily complete your event. Running an event of this distance require months of training and substantial commitment of time and energy from the runner. Team MAD will organize a kickoff meeting, a meet the podiatrist and shoe sale night, various interactions with the charity we are running for, a pasta dinner the night before and a post race party.

As our selected charity of Team MAD you will help us to help you! You will help us find ways to connect your charity to our runners and educate them about your cause. You will become an important part in helping to find sponsors and runners. Together we will raise money for your charity, help runners complete an amazing accomplishment, and ultimately Make A Difference in our community.
