David Sinclair and Rachel Schilkowsky were the men's and women's winners of the 25th running of the Hartford Marathon. Sinclair, of Peru, Vermont, crossed the finish line Saturday with a time of 2:18:20, about 3 minutes longer than the course record. Schilkowsky, of Providence, Rhode Island, finished with a 9th overall best time of 2:41:03, about 8 minutes longer than the women's record. More than 10,000 runners took to Hartford-area streets on a cool and rainy morning. There was also a half marathon, a team 26.2-mile relay and a 5K. Police expected about 65,000 people to watch the race. Numerous roads were closed in the area. Three racers continued their streak of completing every Hartford Marathon: Peter Hawley, of New Hartford, Andrew Bartlett, of Windsor, and Robert Kopac, of Shelton.
