MOVRun and MOVFitness?  Anyone ever participated in one of their so-called races?

I did.

 

Last Sunday, 6/21 -- the Golden Gate 5K.  You can check out the reviews of the race on Active and get a better idea of  what the "not really a race" was all about.  Wanted to get the message out there to all athletes that might get duped into paying a registration fee to these frauds for a simple "club run".  This particular race was completely a renegade race - no athlete support (the advertised to provide water, free parking, prizes, etc...); no proper official time (notepad and a cellphone timer).  They are advertising several upcoming NorCal races  -- Muir Woods, Jack London and even more at the Golden Gate Bridge.  I have called these places and found that they do not have proper permits and plans in place to host events at these locations - at least not as of yesterday.    And they certainly didn't have a permit for the race last sunday on the Golden Gate bridge.

 

 

Want to share your experience with this organization and get the word out???

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All the best to the runners out there.
