Description

What is the definition of a Patriot?

According to Webster it is one who loves and supports his or her country.

But we would like to add a little more to that definition.  A Patriot is also someone who loves and supports his friends and family.

That is who Chris Pepe was and what he will always be remembered as...A Patriot.

Join us on Saturday April 13th for the Patriot Run in Newark in honor of Captain Christopher S. Pepe US Air Force.

The money raised will go to support organizations that Chris loved.

Chris was a huge supporter of Pat's Run in honor of Pat Tillman.  Chris and his friends would go out to Arizona every year to run and support the great cause.  We thought it was only appropriate to have a 4.2 Mile Run/Walk.

Proceeds from this event will go to the Glasgow High School Air Force JROTC for a scholarship and to the Glasgow Lacrosse Team for new equipment.

Why 4.2 Miles?

Every year Chris and friends would fly out to Arizona to run in Pat's Run.

It is a 4.2 mile race in honor of the Pat Tillman.  Pat was a Patriot.

On the evening of April 22, 2004, Pat’s unit was ambushed as it traveled through the rugged, canyon terrain of eastern Afghanistan. His heroic efforts to provide cover for fellow soldiers as they escaped from the canyon led to his untimely and tragic death via fratricide.

Find our more about their organization HERE.

FAQs

1.      How am I supposed to wear my race bib?

2. 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 hour.  

3. Will I receive a refund if I cannot attend?

Fusion Racing does NOT process refunds for events..  

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.

While you do not have to register the person in the stroller, please ask for a rider bib at packet pick up.  There is not cost for a rider bib.

5. Why do I need 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.
