W.Va. AG announces refunds for canceled run

Jul. 26, 2014 @ 08:37 PM

CHARLESTON — At least some women who paid entry fees for a Charleston run that was canceled will get refunds after all.

The West Virginia attorney general’s office says that Eventbrite, a ticketing company used for the Dirty Girl Mud Run, will issue refunds. It says registrants who paid through any other vendor should file a complaint with the attorney general’s office.

The announcement comes two days after a lawsuit was filed against run organizers who had said no refunds would be given. Ben Salango, an attorney for the plaintiffs, tells the Charleston Gazette that the agreement probably satisfies the claims.   

About 2,500 people had registered for the 5-kilometer run Saturday. It was canceled after the organizers missed a deadline to pay a shuttle company that was to provide transportation.
