Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race Honors Community Leaders
The Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race is more than a race. It's a great event to celebrate two great communities, and the Race Committee is pleased to recognize people of distinction who have made life time contributions to the two communities. The tradition of selecting the Honorary Race Starter began in 2005 with the selection of legendary coach Joe Benanto, and 2014's selection of Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti marked a decade that the award has been presented. For 2015, Janice Sheehy becomes the first female selected for the honor. Like Janice, each of the past winners is well known for their work in both communities because they all have strong ties to both.

The only official duty for the Honorary Director is to be on hand to fire the starter's gun!
