The local torch run entered from Trumbull and then went through Huntington Center and downtown Shelton before traveling into Derby. Runners were aided by a police escort.

Many Shelton Police Department members and Mayor Mark Lauretti ran in the event, and they were joined by a contingent of Shelton High students and other participants.
