I will be running the 2009 ING Hartford Marathon this Saturday (Oct. 10). As has been the case with my previous two marathons, I'm now beginning to obsess about the course map and elevation profile. For those who might be interested, I thought that I'd share some details regarding the course that I've pulled together from a few different websites.
You can download and view the official map provided by the ING Hartford Marathon website, but for a more interactive experience I found this map of the Hartford Marathon course on MapMyRun.com:

This will be my first time running the ING Hartford Marathon, but my impression from the maps and elevation profiles is that the course is relatively flat to mildy rolling, and certainly nothing like what I am used to from running up here in New Hampshire. Despite my current place of residence, this race will be something of a homecoming for me since I grew up in West Hartford (most of my family still lives there), and my excitement is starting to build - can't wait to get to the starting line!
