We are a haven for healing fragile bodies when improvement is possible, and a refuge for nurturing vulnerable spirits when a cure is unattainable.

With your support, we can assure the superheroes that live at ECC receive all the medical help they require, and all of the love and support they deserve.

Race Contact Info

If you have any questions about this race, click the button below.


1. I’m registered to run/walk and I’ll be pushing an adaptive athlete/rider course.  Do I have to sign up my rider to get a rider bib?

YES.  Only people with a bib will be permitted on the race course.  Riders will need to register for a Rider Bib at no charge.

2. Are baby joggers, strollers allowed during the event?

Yes.  If you choose to run with a baby jogger, you must seed yourself in the last corral–behind all other runners and you must register your child  for a Rider Bib, at no charge. 

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.

3. 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.

4. 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.
