BBB issues warning about possible racing scams

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Better Business Bureau has a warning for runners before you sign up for another 5K.

The BBB says it has received several complaints about two companies that organize races.

They say Round House Racing and Street Events LLC have been canceling events on short notice, and sometimes refusing to refund money.

The BBB says to research the company, understand the conditions for refunds, and pay with a credit card.

Those charges are easier to dispute than paying with cash.
