During the first eight years
of the Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race, Connecticut's oldest
shoe store, Hubbell Brothers in Derby supplied the running shoes for our

Sports and Outdoors has stepped in and they will be providing the
The other prizes for the
first three runners in the race will be the traditional runner's hat which
has been given to all winners since the race first started.
Wilson Agency, Inc is once again the sponsor of the hats which are a
dark navy blue this year. There is a white and red trim along the brim and
on the stretch tab in the back.
We ask that runners stick
around long enough after the race to pick up their awards.
