Yesterday, Obstacle Racing Media was contacted by Terrain Race via our Instagram account by their new head of public relations. It appeared as though whoever was sending the DM’s was not aware of the prior issues with their customers, and we wanted to see if we could get to the bottom of them. We exchanged several messages before agreeing to send an email.
Here are the responses from the email :
ORM: How much longer will the free promotional race last?
TR: The length of the free registration promotion is TBD. People are really excited about it, and we’re selling out cities left and right.
ORM: Which cities will now have races on both days?
TR: Second dates are added after a first date has filled up. Capacity is around 8,000 per day, or around 16,000 for Saturday and Sunday combined.
We have more dates that are near selling out, so news of additional second dates should come out soon. Here’s a current list of weekends where the first date has sold out and we’ve added a second day:
Miami (Feb 9-10) (First event of 2019) Orlando (Feb 16-17) Phoenix (Feb 23-24)
Pensacola (Apr 6-7) Tucson (Apr 6-7) Fort Worth (Apr 13-14) Houston (Apr 20-21)
Maryland (Apr 27-28) San Jose (Jun 8-9) Hartford (Jun 29-30) New York (Jul 27-28)
Portland (Aug 10-11) Boston (Aug 17-18) Minneapolis (Oct 5-6)Jacksonville (Oct 26-27)
Irvine (Nov 16-17)
ORM: When will the 2018 podium athletes be paid?
TR: The payment problems for competitors is something I just found out about. There’s been a lot of turnover in staff, so I’m going to streamline things going forward. Anyone who is owed money can email me at this address and I’ll get their checks processed. All I need is their name, mailing address, what event they competed in, their place, and division.
We also reached out to Dustin Dorough who we spoke with for the September article to find out if he is still involved with Terrain Race. As of press time, we have not heard back.
