Race is officially sanctioned
The Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race Committee has announced that the race scheduled for November 24 will once again be an officially sanctioned event by the Connecticut and USA Track and Field Associations. Race Director Glenn Gaetano said, "We are pleased to once again be an officially sanctioned event so that USATF members may take full advantage of USATF services and other runners benefit as well from the insurance coverage offered."
A USATF sanction is an official designation issued by USATF, through a local Association, which approves and licenses the holding of a competitive track & field, long distance running or race walking event in the United States. The sanction is also a contract, which evidences the event's commitment to follow national and international rules and regulations of the sport and to provide a safe environment for the participants and spectators. Once the event has satisfied the sanction requirements, the event's application for sanction is approved.
