One of Connecticut’s biggest annual events is turning the big 2-0! The Hartford Marathon has come a long way since its inception in 1994, and this week in our Face the State Flashback, we will show a clip from the news of the anticipation leading up to this October classic.
Running legend Bill Rodgers returned to the city where he was born to kick off the Hartford Marathon, He grew up in Newington and later went to college at Wesleyan. In the clip you’ll see Sunday, look for Channel 3’s Duby McDowell, the Hartford Courant’s Tom Condon, Gayle King and yours truly. Twenty year old videotape is always fun to look at.
