Phil Padilla of Portland, Oregon pulled away
in the last quarter mile after dueling with former three-time champion John
Critelli of Redmond, Washington in a neck and neck battle for most of the
race to win the 2010 Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road race. Justin
MacGregor of Derby had jumped to the early lead as the three of them ran in
a pack across the Derby-Shelton Bridge into Derby.
Critelli took over the lead as the three of
them headed up Elizabeth Street and MacGregor fell back a bit. It became a
two man duel from that point on as Critelli was about a step ahead of
Padilla until Padilla took a step lead as they turned the corner at Main
Street in Derby and headed back across the Derby/Shelton Bridge into
Shelton. MacGregor was about 40 yards behind.
Critelli and Padilla were side-by side along
Howe Avenue, and Critelli pulled ahead as they headed down Hill Street onto
the Riverwalk where Padilla caught and passed Critelli breaking the 16
minute barrier to win in a time of 15:59. MacGregor was third in a time of
Kim Battapaglia dominated the Women's
Division as she complete the course in a time of 18:58 and won for the
fourth straight year matching the four titles won by John Critelli. Her time
was was the best since Kristin Wenstrom set the course record in 2003 at
18:50. They are the only women to have broken the 19 minute barrier.
This was the second title for the Padilla
family as Mike Padilla won the very first race back in 2002.Mike who now
lives in Pennsylvania also ran this year.
