Ansonia resident Tim Milenkevich regained his Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Race 5K title by finishing ahead of the field of 650 runners on Thanksgiving morning. He jumped to a very short lead over Mike Padilla who won the very first race back in 2002. They matched each other virtually stride for stride through downtown Shelton and across the Derby/Shelton Bridge into Derby. As they turned onto Elizabeth from Main Street and headed up the incline to the Derby Green, Tim started to open space between the two that would increase as the race went on. At the finish line, Tim’s lead was 13 seconds with a winning time of 16:24 (5:17 per mile pace). In his two previous championships (2012 & 2013) he ran times of 15:56 and 16:00 respectively.
