BBB… “BEWARE THE FUN RUNS!”

The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota is advising people to be cautious when signing up for themed races, also known as “fun runs.” They say, while most go off without a hitch, but a handful have been rescheduled, postponed or even canceled. The problem is that often, when you sign up, there are no refunds or there’s a no-refund policy. They suggest checking bbb.org and looking at customer reviews. Ddon’t be fooled by a fancy website. Confirm with the local venue that the event is on, and pay by credit card.
