Entrants In Canceled Ohio Mud Run Now Offered Participation In Other Events
Earlier this month, 10TV reported that participants of a planned Mud Run were out of luck after the event was canceled.
The company told those who had already paid that they would not get their money back.
"The number of participants registered for our Logan, Ohio, event were significantly lower than we projected. We had just over 400 registered participants at the time of cancelation. Unfortunately, we spent heavily in marketing, put down a significant deposit with the venue owner, and incurred significant up front equipment rental expenses. This has left our company insolvent," said part of the statement that the Great American Mud Run provided 10TV.
The race cancelation came after a similar one in Tennessee.
On Tuesday, the company contacted 10TV to say they have worked out deal with another company to allow participants a chance to compete.
Organizers of the Great American Mud Run series are partnering with Warrior Dash. Those that paid for entry into the cancelled Mud Run will be allowed to enter a 2013 or 2014 Warrior Dash without paying another fee.
An email has been sent to all of those who paid to get into the Hocking Hills area event.
They will have until Monday, Oct. 7, 2013, to use their discount code to sign up for a Warrior Dash.
