Description

 

The atTAcK addiction E-Racing the Stigma 5K is so much more than just a race; it’s a movement. Comprised primarily of participants who have been personally impacted by the disease of addiction by either overcoming an addiction, having lost a loved one to addiction, and/or currently living with an addicted loved one, it has been described as a spiritual experience. The crisp March air is no match for the warm feelings of love, camaraderie, and acceptance the participants experience as the course winds them through picturesque Old New Castle and through beautiful Battery Park along the Delaware River.

Proceeds from the event will benefit atTAcK addiction, a grassroots 501(c)(3) charitable foundation established to assist individuals and families impacted by addiction. The organization provides support for recovering addicts and their loved ones, advocates for policy changes, educates families about opiate addiction and treatment options, works to prevent drug use, and strives to end the stigma of the disease

FAQs

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 fusioninclusionde@gmail.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.
