Attention Dirty Girl Mud Run participants.
The Dirty Girl Mud Run, scheduled for Charleston this weekend, cannot proceed as planned. The only way this event could be held at Cato Park would be with shuttle bus service into the park. Event organizers contacted Park Tours to provide that bus service. Owners of Park Tours were told Monday morning that the event was cancelled, but then they were told that they might get paid after all. As of this evening, they had not been paid and, understandably, could wait no longer for payment. Other vendors have been waiting patiently for the financial issues to be resolved between 100 LLC, which has owned the Dirty Girl Mud Run brand, and Human Movement, which has produced these events.
Because approximately 2,500 people had registered with 100 LLC for the event, Charleston Mayor Danny Jones was trying to leave the door open for the race to happen. But without shuttle bus service and with significant uncertainty over other expenses related to the event, there is no way this event could proceed at Cato Park Saturday morning.
Charleston West Virginia is only a short drive or flight away! You will find that Charleston is a capital city with small town charm and a progressive attitude.
