FAQ's

1. What are the time limits for the races? Is the race walker friendly?

Walkers are always welcome in Fusion Races.  Our 5K courses are open for 1.5 hours.  

2. Will I receive a refund if I cannot attend?  Can I pick up my SWAG after the event?

Fusion Racing does NOT process refunds for events.

All SWAG must be picked up during early bib pick up or race day.

3. I’m registered to run and I’ll be pushing a Rider in an adaptive running chair/ BABY STROLLER on the race course.  Do I need to register the person in the chair?

At the registration table please ask for a RIDER BIB.  There is no cost for a rider bib, it just allows us to know everyone on the course in case of medical emergency.

If you are pushing and adaptive running chair please email fusioninclusionde@gmail.com so we can provide special instructions.

4. Are baby joggers or strollers allowed during the race?

Joggers and strollers are always allowed in Fusion Races.  We ask that you seed yourself in the corral according to your mile time. 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.

All riders in strollers will need a RIDER BIB at no charge.

5. Are pets permitted on the course?

For the safety of the participants and spectators, pets are not permitted in any of the Fusion Racing events.

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.  It is important to watch your surroundings as you run.

8. How are awards determined?

Overall and Masters winners are scored on Gun time. If you feel you are a contender for one of these awards please consider lining up on the front line.

All other participants, including Age Group placement, are determined by chip time.

9. What is the difference between chip time and gun time?

Gun time is when the race actually starts (typically by the airhorn). This is when the race clock is turned on. Chip time is when you (or the chip on the back of your bib assigned to you) actually crosses the start line. In bigger races this could be a several minutes after the race actually starts (gun time). Unless you are an overall or masters winner your place is determined by your chip time.   

10.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.
