BoneFrog Chooses To Press On Despite Covid-19 Warnings.

Update – 4:24pm BoneFrog released a message on social media announcing a cancellation. The next BoneFrog event is currently scheduled for April 19, 2020 in Virginia Beach.

As all other obstacle race companies have shut down events for the next 30-45 days, BoneFrog will be holding their event this weekend at Bouckaret Farms in Fairburn, Georgia.

As recently as Noon today EST, BoneFrog have been answering questions on the Georgia BoneFrog Facebook event page stating they were moving forward with this weekend’s event. They published a video (see below) featuring obstacle set up titled “Getting It Done.”

Several customers commented asking for additional clarity around this. BoneFrog staff have confirmed several times that the event is moving forward and “any questions or concerns please email in to: [email protected]

We emailed BoneFrog owner, Brian Carney, directly on March 13th asking for a status update and got no response. We emailed the HQ email address this morning and received the following  “Brian is in the middle of multiple items right now. If you have questions, please send them via email and he will respond to them as soon as he has time.” We also sent a text to his number, and have yet to hear back.

We reached out to the venue, Bouckaret Farms, and asked if the event was still moving forward. A staff member told us “The CDC, the city, and state government are making that decision. Brian needs to understand those decisions and needs to communicate that to his people”. The staff member went on to tell us that he won’t lock the gates as “the venue is open for people who care for their horses, and other normal business dealings”.

Getting it done.
