The Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5k Road Race offers a great, early morning run through the historic downtowns of Shelton and Derby. The race is finished in plenty of time to get to the annual Shelton-Derby football game, then on to your Thanksgiving Day celebrations.

This popular race has become a noted and looked for Valley event every Thanksgiving and sells out quickly. The race has become so successful that the number of timed runners has been increased several times, and is now limited to 800. Registration closes as soon as that limit is reached, and no registrations are taken on race day.

Awards are presented to the first place male and female runners overall, and the top three male and female finishers in each division. Special awards go to the top three male and female runners in the High School Division.

Fast Track Timing LLC provides Disposable Bib Chip Technology. Race results are available almost instantaneously with their mobile app for IOS devices.

High-quality shirts are provided to all registrants, as well as great "goody bags" for the first 500 registered runners.

The Farmer's Market on Canal Street and the spacious Derby-Shelton Rotary Club Pavilion in Veteran's Park serve as race headquarters with plenty of delicious refreshments available before and after the race.
