This year’s Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5k charity road race is both live and virtual so you can decide which better suits your needs. The traditional, live 5k race on Thanksgiving morning starts at 8 am in downtown Shelton, and the virtual race window opens on Thanksgiving morning and closes on Sunday night, November 28. (Due to the inability to regulate other courses, virtual runners will not qualify for awards or placement.) Register by November 16 to receive a long-sleeve race shirt and race bib. 

This popular race offers a great, early morning run through the historic downtowns of Shelton and Derby. You’ll be finished in plenty of time to get to the annual Shelton-Derby football game, and then on to your Thanksgiving Day celebrations.

Runners are encouraged to register early because this noted and looked-for Valley event sells out very quickly. Runners are capped at 800 (including both live runners and virtual participants), and registration closes once the cap is reached. No registrations will be taken on race day.

Arrive early to enjoy the delicious refreshments available before and after the race at the spacious Derby-Shelton Rotary Club Pavilion in Veteran’s Park.We hope you’ll join us, but don’t delay—click the registration button to secure your spot!
