Spartan Offers Massive Relief For Cancelled Tough Mudder Events

 

Tough Mudder Obstacle week Everest 2.0

Joe Desena reached out to Obstacle Racing Media this morning to give us an update on the current situation with the Tough Mudder bankruptcy case.

He told us “We have rehired all remaining available employees in the US, and we have fully reconstituted Europe“. He went on to say that “We are hoping the Trustee allows us to turn ticket sales on as soon as legally possible. The remaining Tough Mudder schedule will be determined how quickly we can get ticket sales open”.

Most importantly to OCR customers concerned about cancelled Tough Mudder events, he told us ” The official policy for any previously purchased Tough Mudder event that does not occur as scheduled will be as follows” :  “Tough Mudder tickets for any event not held will be transferable to any other Tough Mudder event in 20/21 AND gets 2 Spartan open entries of any distance, anywhere in the world”.

If you purchased a Tough Mudder season pass prior to the bankruptcy proceedings, you can use it for “Any Tough Mudder event that is held in 2020 AND 2021 globally. PLUS a Spartan Season (Open) Pass for 2020 and 2021.”

Joe said the reason for the generous offer is “We know it’s been hell for all of us. Hell for the employees and Hell for the customers, so we think this is a fair compensation”. Spartan has 275 events in 45 countries, so there isn’t a reason that anyone should not be able to take advantage of this olive branch”

As previously reported, the next hearing in the bankruptcy case is scheduled for February 25, 2020 at 1:00pm EST in Judge Sotchi’s court.

Stay up to date with all of the Tough Mudder news, and how we got to this point here.

  5. What about volunteer codes?

  6. I bought 2 elite passes that could be used on any toughmudder event – what can i use these for now?

  7. Will those TM Spartan Codes work on an Ultra Race? Hope so! Any idea when we can start signing up for races? Hopefully soon after that next court date. So generous of Spartan. I was actually shocked.

  8. Any word in if we bought an open single ticket for 2020?
