Ashland Half Marathon is a scam

Do not sign up for this race. It is a scam. They cancelled the race in 2018 and said our registrations would be good for the race in 2019. Then they disappeared off the face of the earth. Both the Ashland Half Marathon and the Ashland Sporting Good Association websites went down. We received no further communication about the 2019 race. I tried emailing them but the emails came back undeliverable. Two weeks before the 2019 "race date" someone put up a new Ashland Half Marathon website but the email address on that site is also invalid and returns undeliverable. I know I will never see my $130 race fee (for 2 people) again but I want to make sure no one else falls for this scam.

2019 Race Review
Review On:
How to get your refund

Apparently the race has been canceled for 2019 and no official notification was sent out. If you contact Ashland Sporting Association they will give you Steve Greenberg's phone number. You can also email Steve at steveg@oakrealtyma.com and he will send a check to the address you gave when you signed up. This used to be my favorite race, it's a shame that it has become this poorly run.
