Blue Back Mitten Run

Santa Claus greets runners as they head for the finish line of the Hartford Marathon Foundation's Blue Back Mitten Run 5K race in West Hartford on Sunday, Dec. 6. The event attracted over 2,000 runners to the Blue Back Square for the festive family-friendly run. Participants in the race were also encouraged to donate a pair of gloves to the "The Town That Cares Fund," a program of the West Hartford Human Services Department and nonperishable food donation to help Foodshare of Greater Hartford.
