Coach and CRR Jim Fischer

Those who know CRR Jim Fischer could have predicted this day and this particular honor would come. It had to come. For nearly 30 years, Jim has been the epitome of class and honor while mentoring hundreds in running sports—whether for cross country, indoor or outdoor track and field, road races, or the triathlon—often on his own personal time, not as part of his job as men’s and women’s coach at the University of Delaware. His dedication has been formally recognized at the state level with his induction into the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame on May 17 (see story).

In March Jim was also honored by the Delaware Sportswriters and Broadcasters Association for his years of service to the running community.

Creek Road Runners everywhere join in echoing, “Congratulations, Jim!”
