Corporate 5K Benefits The Connection

Join us on Thursday, Aug. 7th, at beautiful Bushnell Park, Hartford, for the Corporate 5K. This road race benefits The Connection, a statewide non-profit human service and community development agency.

Organized by Race Director John Bysiewicz of JB Sports, the first Corporate 5K was run in downtown Hartford in 1990. The inaugural event had over 600 runners and 60 corporate teams. Since 1990, the event has raised well over $100,000 for charity.

The Connection became the event’s charitable partner in 2013 and added enthusiasm to the race. A new event logo and a flatter out and back course was introduced. Our race t-shirts were very popular, and we had the largest event in a decade as hundreds of spectators watched nearly 1,000 runners from 80 corporate teams raise thousands of dollars for The Connection.

This year’s event promises much fun and excitement. In addition to the race, participants will enjoy a post-race party cookout with live music.
