Cancelled and NO reimbursement

Feb 08, 2015 by Sandy

What a disappointment! My husband and I signed up to do this run and it was cancelled. Friends and family also signed up and they didn't get their money back either. We never received a letter, email, nothing! I found out by going on the website to check the time and date and to my surprise it had been cancelled! Why? Who knows, we never got a reason not did we get reimbursed. I would like to know if anyone got reimbursed and how did you go about getting it. I am very much disappointed and feel that this was done purposely. I feel robbed and taken advantage of. I will never pay for this event, nor will my friends and family.

Shouldn't even have a star

Jul 18, 2014 by Chris

Honestly, extremely disappointed. Canceled event a few days before the race with no real explanations or real apology. Felt like we all got scammed out of our money. Beware.

Not even 1 star. They are scam artist. Don't join. Take your money and cancel events. NO REFUNDS!!! They have done a number of times. BEWARE

Terrible race company!

Jun 29, 2014 by Beth Maffett

This race company is Horrible! Brooklyn was given the cheapest obstacles. There was false advertising from this company. The obstacles are not what they appear. Half of them were not the ones listed on the map. Some were actually broken and the ones with foam hardly had any foam due to broken equipment. My heat was at 10:50 and when we got to the lemons there were some lemons that were deflated and the foamer was broken. The workers told us that earlier there was a lot of foam. Complete waste of time and money. Find a different race. Absolutely horrible. Also very little mud.
