Warrior Dash Injunction.

This is interesting.

According to their website, the Warrior Dash may or may not take place as planned this weekend.  Here's what they say:
Kaufman County in Texas has enjoined and prohibited Warrior Dash Texas from being held as advertised.


It was advertised as taking place mostly in Dallas County with only a small portion in Kaufman County, but now we know that even that small portion of the event can not be held in Kaufman County. We didn’t know it, but a court order was obtained without any notice to us to prevent the event from happening there.

We are doing everything in our power to comply. So, look for an update on Tuesday after we have our day in court, because we may have to give you new directions to the event.
Warrior Dash has thousands of folks registered for the race, which takes place over two days.  If it doesn't happen, they are going to lose a lot of money, not to mention goodwill. 

It is suprising that such a large event didn't secure the race site in advance, making sure the run would go off without a hitch.  With El Socrcho, we start the permitting process months before the race.
What I can't figure out is why Kaufman County is opposed to holding a running event.  Maybe because they are providing alcohol afterwards? 

It is all very odd.

This attorney's opinion was amuzing.
