RENO, Nev. - A Utah company's cancellation of an annual fun run featuring a muddy, foamy obstacle course has left participants out of money in Oregon and other states.
Registered runners for the 5K Foam Fest set for Aug. 2 in Reno received an email Thursday from Spanish Fork, Utah-based Round House Racing saying it was going out of business and the event was canceled. Participants also aren't being offered refunds.
Similar emails went out earlier in the week to runners signed up for the July 26 event in Portland, Oregon.
After tireless efforts to find a way to help us finish out our season; we simply can t continue to move forward, organizers said on their website.
Stephanie Rutherford, who registered for the Reno run, and Shellie Brandt, who signed up for the Portland run, say it was wrong for the company to take between $50 and $100 from people and then cancel the events.
Round House Racing said on their website that Red Frog Events has stepped up to offer free registration to any of their 2014 or 2015 running events, including Warrior Dash, Epic Fail Challenge, Cocoa Classic and Bacon Chase
