|The Governor's Race for Excellence 5K - RIDERS IN BABY STROLLERS AND ADAPTIVE RUNNING CHAIRS||
Bear, DE US 19701
Join us for the 2nd Annual Governor's Race for Excellence 5K to benefit JDG. This year 5K will be located at the beautiful Glasgow Park on the newely USATF certified course.
Jobs for Delaware Graduates (JDG) was designed in 1978 by five working groups in Delaware, drawn from business, educational, workforce, labor union, and community leadership. The purpose of the organization was to simultaneously address Delaware’s unemployment and dropout rates. Together, the public and private sector leaders of the state developed the model of Jobs for Delaware Graduates.
Our mission is to enable students to achieve academic, career, personal and social success.
More than 50,000 young people have participated in JDG programs since their inception, and more than 250 employers rely on Jobs for Delaware Graduates for producing enthusiastic, well-prepared, and effective employees.

1. What are the time limits for the races? Is the race walker friendly?
Walkers are welcome in all the races. The 5K course is open for 1.5 hours.
2. Will I receive a refund if I cannot attend?
Fusion Racing does NOT process refunds for events..
3. I’m registered to run and I’ll be pushing a Rider in an adaptive running chair on the race course. How do I sign up my Rider to get a Rider Bib?
Only people with a bib will be permitted on the race course. Riders will need to register for a Rider Bib through their pushers registration, at no charge, by visiting the registration table during packet pick up. Please ask for a Fusion Staff Member.
Please email email@example.com so we know how many adaptive chairs to expect at the race and we can provide special instructions.
4.Are baby joggers or strollers allowed during the race?
If you choose to run with a baby jogger, you must seed yourself in the last corral–behind all other runners. It is your responsibility to make sure your baby jogger does not impede other runners, and you must take extra precaution to ensure your safety, your child’s safety, and the safety of the runners around you. We reserve the right to pull any participant from the race who is endangering other runners or themselves.
To get a rider bib for your baby jogger or stroller please ask for you at packet pick up.
5.Why do I need to register for a Rider Bib and what do I get with my Rider Bib?
For your continued safety, it’s important that race officials are aware of each person on the race course. In a medical situation, your emergency contact information will be obtained from your rider bib. Rider bibs give you access to the race course only. Riders do not receive any race swag, including but not limited to; race shirt, medal, finisher item, finisher food, etc. A rider is permitted to register, at the current registration rate, as a race participant instead of as a Rider if he/she wishes to enjoy all of the race benefits.
6.Are pets permitted on the course?
For the safety of the participants and spectators, pets are not permitted in any of the Fusion Racing races.
7.Are headphones (iPods, mp3 players, etc) allowed during the race?
Headphones are allowed for any runner who is not competing for a cash prize (if a cash prize is associated with the race).
However, we do strongly encourage that participants abstain from using headphones during the race.
8.Can I wear someone else's bib who cannot make the race?
It is imperative that the registration data associated with your race number does in fact belong to you, the participant.
While wearing someone else’s bib may seem harmless to the parties perpetrating the unauthorized bib transfer, it does convey serious consequences to the organizers and participant field alike.
From race results to finishers’ awards being impacted as well as medical staff being able to correctly identify participants in need of treatment, it is imperative that the registration data associated with your race number does in fact belong to you, the participant.
Thus, if race organizers become aware that a runner has participated in one of our events with a bib that is not registered to that runner, both the runner and the person to whom the bib is registered will be prohibited from participating in subsequent Fusion Racing events for a minimum of two years.
