A Note From Our President
Team M.A.D. was formed by an ad hoc group of dedicated people in 2006 and is a 501(c)(3)! For the first decade, we trained 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 mission is to support local charities in reaching their full potential while providing a safe and memorable experience.
After the 2016 Hartford Marathon we decided to go a different route to enable us to make a larger donation to the beneficiary and hosted the inaugural Steam Train Half Marathon & Relay. Despite not generating a significant amount of sponsorship and being a new race we were able to present a check for $10,000 to the beneficiary. We continued to host the event through 2019 when we decided to turn it over to Community Health Resources and return to being runners.
We are actively seeking runners, volunteers and partners for our 2022 running season where we will be raising money for The Jordan Porco Foundation as well as other local charities to be finalized in the near future.
