Cold, rainy, windy weather didn't put a damper in John Critelli's running as he topped a record field of 477 runners to win the Fifth Annual Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race in a time of 16 minutes and 12 seconds which was 19 seconds better than second place finisher Bart Wasiolek. It marked the second straight year that Critelli has won the race.

The Women's Division came down to a near photo finish as Kelly Bergeron squeezed by two-time defending champion Robyn Hudak by tenths of a second in a sprint to the finish line.

A Close Finish in the Women's Division


The Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day Road Race was started in 2002 as a community effort to honor one of the great naval heroes in United States history and to celebrate the two neighboring cities that  he called home - Derby and Shelton, Connecticut. More than a road race, it has become a Thanksgiving tradition that joins the downtowns of two great cities undergoing a renaissance along the banks of the Housatonic River. The race has benefited the Boys and Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley. Over $30,000 was raised in the first past 5 years.
