We want to thank our A/V crew for outdoing themselves this year. They captured over 1,300 photos and 2 hours of video that we have compiled here. They included Joe Andreana, Alma Calderon, Justin Klubek, Markanthony Izzo, Dennis O'Connell, Glenn Gaetano, Maureen Marren and Jim Ferris who did the "play by play" on the video!

John Critelli continued his domination of the Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race as he jumped to the early lead and held it all the way to the very end in winning the race for the fourth straight year with a time of 16:04. Kim Battipaglia of New Haven moved to establish her own dynasty by winning the Women's Division in a time of 19:21 which was four seconds faster than she had during her victory a year ago. Keith Sansone of Shelton finished a very strong second to Critelli in a time of 16:20. However the Critelli family dominated the race as Jake Critelli finished fourth and Philip Critelli was the seventh overall finisher.

Kaydee Duffy of Monroe was second in the Women's Division with a time of 20:09 on a day that was ideal for running with race time temperatures in the mid '30's with a light cloud cover and almost no wind.

584 runners finished the race this year which was fifteen more than a year ago when 569 runners finished.
