Runners "Goodie Bag" Will Be Best Ever

T-Shirts, gloves, water bottles & much more!

The Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race is noted as one of the most runner-friendly races in the state, and a big part of that is the "Runners Goody Bag" which is given to the first 350 registered runners. This year the race committee as outdone itself, and runners are going to be pleasantly surprised to see their Runners World bags stuffed not only with their heavy-weight cotton t-shirt, but with so much additional useful "stuff". Check these items:

Runners Gloves

Just in case it gets a bit nippy, you might want to put on your new runner's gloves courtesy of the Wilson Agency in Shelton. Tom Wilson was been a founding member of the Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race, and serves as Master of Ceremonies at both the start and finish lines in addition to serving as the Assistant Race Director.

Water Bottle

Of course, every runner needs liquid nourishment! You won't need any on race day because the race committee takes care of that both before and after the race and on the course. But when you go home, you can remember the race every time you go out to run by taking along the runner's water bottle provided by Greco & Haines which also provides the t-shirts for the runners. Greco & Haines are water experts, so they are a natural to provide water bottles!

Sports Center Gift Certificate

If you are looking for another fun activity besides running, our gift certificate to the Sports Center of Connecticut, located in Shelton will provide you with the opportunity to experience a wide range of activities ranging from batting cages to driving ranges to Lazer Tag.

Tetley Tea Bags

Tetley Tea is providing another unique gift to make the runner's goodie bag so special. You will find a canister containing 20 quality Tetley tea bags.

Wiffle Ball

Did you know that Wiffle Ball is located in Shelton. Well you do now, and to help you remember, they are adding a wiffle ball to each bag. Visit their web site where you can find out all about the history of the Wiffle Ball and even find the official rules for the game!

Road Id Discount

We will have 10 gift certificates for RoadID products, but even if you don't win one, you can get a discount on a purchase by using the discount coupons available in the bag.

And that's not all!

Thanks to John & Dan Saccu of World Fulfillment Center, your bag will be neatly packed, and will have some additional goodies as well - but you'll have to pick up your bag to find out just what! They have been handling the bags since the inception of the race, and they always add some special items selected just by them to please our runners.
