This was by far the best and most fun mud run I have done to date! Its sad they went out of business; was looking forward to doing it again this year!

Refunds have been coming...

Hi runners,

I was schedule for a run in Logan, Ohio last Saturday, the 14th and also received the cancellation email about 3 days before. I was bummed after reading the Tennessee run reviews saying your refunds never showed and figured the whole thing was a scam. However, my three team mates and I all received our checks within 2-3 days after the email so don't give up. I hope everyone gets their money back :)

This race is crap. Total SCAM. This make me want to not sign up for any race. Some good news if you signed up with you should get your money back some racers did and some didn't I got the same email saying I will not get a refund but I got one from and said that I will, I also called and spoke with someone and said I will get my money. Check you bank record and if you paid you will get a refund if it doesn't it not looking good for you.

Anyone in TN, if you haven't please file a complaint with Consumer Affairs. The number is 6157414737. I am out $160 and would like to see this organization burn for what they have done.

Total SCAM!!!! After sending email stating they were postponing race and they would refund money if requested, now have sent email stating they refuse to refund money and refuse to respond to any requests! TOTAL SCAM!

Sep 10, 2013 by Kim Metzler I brought this to the attention of the local news, the owner of the venue was pretty pissed too. Hopefully this gives you guys a little more info on what's going on... or at least peace of mind that some attention has been drawn to this (even though we still don't have answers).

Lost Money

I would not recommend this race. My husband has lost 80 lbs and we wanted to do a fun run together. We also got two other friends to sign up with us. So much for that! Looks like they just took our money and ran. I can't even find their facebook page anymore.
Like others have said, a week before the original race, we were alerted it had to be postponed. Claimed easy to get refund at this time. Just declare couldn't make postponed date. They even offered an incentive to shirt. Then an entire month after we were to receive refunds, the postponed date was also canceled and no refunds will be given.
