The Commando Run obstacle course run, set to race March 31, 2012, in Olathe (suburb of Kansas City) will not go off as planned. Check out the original Examiner announcement of the race HERE. If you visit their website or Facebook page, you will see the following breaking news as of yesterday;
“We are sorry to announce the cancellation of the upcoming 2012 Commando Run due to issues with the race location which are out of our control. After several attempts to rectify the issues it became apparent that no solution would be attained and the only option was to cancel this year’s run”
But, fear not! If you have signed up to run, or still want your obstacle course racing fix for that day, they have more.
“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and disappointment this cancellation creates. We are please…d to announce, however, that an agreement has been made with Ruckus Sports Kansas City to transfer our registrations to their similar obstacle race event on the same day. Ruckus Sports, an exhilarating obstacle challenge series, has agreed to honor all registrations for the Commando Run at no additional cost.
