VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - 10 On Your Side continues to investigate the race organizer who canceled and owes hundreds of runners a refund. WAVY.com learned that while Devon Beezhold has given no answers to runners of the canceled Hash Dash, she is trying to set up another race.
WAVY.com went to Beezhold's Virginia Beach home and found her in the garage lifting weights.
"I really can't talk to you right now," Beezhold said.
The race was to be run in May along Granby Street. Runners paid a $50 entry fee, but two days before the race, Norfolk City officials pulled the plug because Beezhold didn't have a permit.
WAVY.com asked her what was going on with the race.
"It's been canceled," Beezhold answered.
Two months ago when WAVY.com talked with Beezhold, she said the race was postponed and she was working on a plan to give runners their money back. Two months later and runners say they still haven't heard from her and fear that the money is lost.
"I would just like to know what she did with the money," said runner Katelin Sailock.
"It would be nice to have the race scheduled, but I would like to have my money back," added runner Ashleigh Campbell.
So where is the money? That is just one of the many questions WAVY.com had for Beezhold that she refused to answer.
10 On Your Side looked into Beezhold even more and found she's already organizing a Turkey Trot race in Virginia Beach in November. It's scheduled to take place at First Landing State Park.
"There is nothing to talk about it," Beezhold said to WAVY.com Tuesday. "I'm not talking about it. There is nothing to talk about."
10 On Your Side asked Norfolk Police at what point the lack of refund becomes criminal, and that's something police say they are checking into. Norfolk City officials say they have not received any new permit requests to hold a rescheduled Hash Dash.
However, it's not all bad news for the runners who registered for the canceled 5k.
WAVY.com's investigation into the Hash Dash 5K caught the eye of another race organizer. Windle Day owns Impact Timing in Newport News and puts together dozens of races. He says he feels so badly the runners haven't been given refunds he's decided he wants to do something to help.
"I'm willing to put a race on for those registrants, those who have proof of registration," Day said. "I will put on a free race for those guys."
If you registered for the Hash Dash, Day wants you to contact him at Impact Timing .
