There's no word on what the cancellation means for a planned Aug. 9 race in Cleveland


The Dirty Girl Mud Run, a 5-K race for women that has a scheduled Cleveland date of Aug. 9, has canceled its most recent race in West Virginia, according to WSAZ-TV, Channel 3's NBC affiliate in Huntington.

Dirty Girl Mud Run's Facebook page apologizes for the cancellation, saying the Charleston race has been canceled "due to circumstances out of our control."

"We will not be issuing refunds under any circumstances," the post continues.

Individual race entries purchased through the group's Facebook page cost $85, plus a $7.67 fee.

Deputy Mayor Rod Blackstone told WSAZ the shuttle service for the race didn't receive payment or hear from organizers by the deadline Tuesday so the shuttle service pulled out of the race.

City leaders say without it, the race couldn't go on at Cato Park so it is now canceled.

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey tells his office has been inundated with complaints about the run being canceled without refunds. The AG's office is encouraging people to file complaints.

According to the Dirty Girl Mud Run's Facebook page, the race is meant "to provide a non-intimidating environment for women ages 14 and up of all abilities in which they can let their hair down and enjoy some mud, sweat and cheers."
