CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A lawsuit was filed against the producers of a run that was canceled in Charleston in which participants were told they wouldn't be issued refunds.
Media outlets report the Charleston firm of Preston and Solango filed the lawsuit Wednesday in Kanawha County Circuit Court on behalf of participants who signed up for the Dirty Girl Mud Run. The lawsuit seeks class-action status.
The event was scheduled for Saturday at Charleston's Cato Park. About 2,500 had registered, paying entry fees between $65 and $95, depending on when they signed up.
Delafield, Wis.-based Dirty Girl is owned by 100 LLC. The Charleston event is managed by Louisville, Colo.-based entertainment company Human Movement Management. Representatives for the company didn't immediately reply to requests for comment Thursday.
