CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The company that sold tickets to the canceled Dirty Girl Mud Run in Charleston has agreed to provide refunds to the participants according to West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.

Morrisey finalized an agreement with the Eventbrite, a self-service ticketing company, Friday. He said Eventbrite will email those who signed up for the race through its website.

“Eventbrite was a third-party contractor serving the organizers of the race and had nothing to do with the decision to cancel the race,” Morrisey said in a news release. “Notwithstanding, the company desires to provide full refunds to those participants that paid registration fees through the Eventbrite.com website.”

Morrisey said the owner of the Dirty Girl brand, 100 LLC, contracted with Eventbrite to provide tickets to who paid between $65 and $95 to take part in the run.

“Upon learning of 100 LLC’s statement that it would not refund the paid registration fees, Eventbrite found the outcome unsatisfactory for the Eventbrite registrants. Based upon the unusual circumstances of the cancellation, Eventbrite has decided to provide refunds in the amount of the registration fees to the Eventbrite registrants.”

“Eventbrite wants to work cooperatively with us to facilitate the refunds and ensure all appropriate participants are fully refunded their race registration fees,” Morrisey said.

The Attorney General’s Office received more than 250 complaints after 100 LLC announced there would be no refunds. There were nearly 2,700 people who signed up for the mud run.

The race was scheduled to be Saturday at Cato Park in Charleston but an ongoing financial dispute between 100 LLC and the company that puts on the runs, Human Movement, caught the Charleston event in the middle. The race was canceled when Human Movement failed to provide funds for a shuttle bus to and from the event.

    I can see that this will become campaign fodder for the AG's opponent in the next campaign, something along the lines of "Did you know that, as your Attorney General, Patrick Morrisey was responsible for paying 2700 dirty girls?"

    Should be entertaining to watch as repulsed grandparent heads spin faster than that of "The Exorcist's" Linda Blair.

    Just what West Virginia needs a no-nonsense AG that instead of handing out political trinkets bought at taxpayers expense and hiring his Good Ole Boy network of lawyer buddies that made campaign contributions to handle litigation that his office should have done, he does the job he was elected to do--protect the interests of its residents!
    West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey for governor!

    • Dumb Liberals

      You wouldn't be implying that Darrel "Quick Law" McGraw was, lets just say a tad bit shady, a back room dealer, under the table fixer? After all, his 12 year stint on the WV supremes resulted in the corruption of the state's juvenile justice system, the destruction of the criminal codes overall, and the liberalization of the judicial system as a whole. His wife, on the other hand, took care of the destruction of the public educational system. So you could say "the liberals that interrupt together, corrupt together." Besides, just imagine how many democrat, (d), liberal, and socialist's pockets he lined with green.

  • How it really works in Life.

    Classic example of how the mafia works (and Government too). Shake everybody down who is involved; and eventually, someone along the food chain will cave in and pony up the monies. What other choice did the "THIRD PARTY" vendor have here? Pay the legal fees when they're named in the lawsuit (with all involved and perhaps never do business in West Virginia again). Or, cut your losses for your affilation with a "dirty" organization you've done business with "in good faith" and live & prosper. Classic example of extorion

    If the Attorney General's Office is hiring, I'm sure I'd be good for the office. (And as a footnote, I'm glad that those ladies will be getting their monies back, but it really should have been repaid by the "FIRST VENDOR", The Dirty Girls) www.eventbrite.com
