Race is cancelled for 2020 due to COVID-19

We are all experiencing unprecedented change and uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Placers team is committed to continuing our mission with our Acts of Kindness Promise. In keeping with the spirit of that mission, we are also working diligently to ensure we keep our promises to Preston’s March and the 20 amazing children awaiting their bikes. 

We originally decided to postpone the race to a later date in 2020. However, based on the uncertain climate of when groups will once again be permitted to gather recreationally, we have decided to cancel this year’s Crush Your Run. This was not a decision we arrived at lightly, but one that we feel is necessary. 

We understand that it’s a difficult time for everyone and many families and individuals are struggling. Preston’s March is a small non-profit that has also been negatively impacted by this crisis. Even though we can’t have an event - Deb from Preston’s March is working closely with the families to get the adaptive bikes to the children immediately. They need this equipment now more than ever! As all of the bikes were prepaid upon time of order, we are working to ensure that all funds raised for this event are still going directly to support Preston’s March! 

Here’s how you can help:

  • Any donations already made through the RunSignUp site are being sent directly to Preston’s March.

  • We would like to encourage you to consider converting your race registration fee to a donation for Preston’s March to support them and keep their mission going. If you agree, you don’t need to take any action at this time.

  • If you do not want us to convert your race fee to a donation to Preston’s March, simply let us know within 15 days of receiving this email that you are requesting a refund and we will process it for you.

***If we don’t hear from you before midnight on May 6, 2020, we will close out the race and all funds will be sent to Preston’s March. Please email nic@fusionracetiming.com if you are requesting a refund ***

Thank you so much for all of your support and we can’t wait to see you at future Fusion Racing events! We hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy!

Placers is proud to present the 2020 Crush Your Run 5K!

Come run through the streets of Newark with us. Upon completion of your race, Orange Crushes will be waiting for our 21 plus runners back at the famous Deer Park Tavern! 

This is a run/walk so come out regardless if this is your first 5K or if you're a veteran!

Proceeds from this event will be going to Preston's March for Energy.

Preston’s March was created with one goal in mind. With the overwhelming need for adaptive recreational equipment for children with disabilities and the concern for childhood obesity, the Preston’s March mission is to provide adaptive bikes to children with special needs.

Our Goal is to have 20 bikes given away to 20 kids on a waiting list to receive a bike and have them join us in the race! 

For more information about Preston's March please see their website here.

Join us! It warms our hearts every time a child is given a bike designed just for them! We want to share in spreading that joy with as many people as possible!

Each participant will get two drink tickets for Orange Crushes.
