Just got this in my email:
Dear Hero Rush Registrants,
We regret to announce that Hero Rush is cancelling all future events and will no longer be in business as of August 3, 2013, ceasing operations immediately. We have worked tirelessly these last few weeks to continue producing our events but due to business conditions, we cannot.
We are sorry to have to send this email and for no longer being able to host our amazing participants, you’ve been incredible and supported us like we could never have imagined.
The obstacle racing community has been great, but despite an exhaustive search for options through today, we cannot proceed further. We do hold out some hope that another race series or investors will step in and allow us to continue and some discussions towards that are continuing to take place through early next week. But at this point we cannot continue forward. We will file Chapter 7 bankruptcy in a few days and will not be able to refund due to our financial situation.
Hero Rush no longer has staff or resources and will not be able to respond to individual emails or phone calls but will provide additional email updates as information becomes available.
Thank you again for your support of our race, our charities and our partners in 15 communities we’ve visited since last April.
Hero Rush Team
