Robert Alfred Fecteau II v. Venture Richmond Inc.; and Metropolitan Sports Backers Inc. d/b/a Richmond Sports Backers; and The Road Runners Club of America Inc.; and Jon Lugbill; and John A. Raigins
(This suit is similar to one filed in January by the same plaintiff ). Plaintiff says defendants Sports Backers and Venture Richmond and Road Runners, acting under the name “Richmond Road Runners Club,” organized, conducted and/or sponsored the Filthy 5k Mud Run at Brown’s Island on May 14, 2010. Plaintiff says the final “Muddy Pool” was designed and operated in such a manner that it was particularly shallow with a hard and uneven bottom. Plaintiff says that agents of defendant encouraged participants to “hit it” or “dive” into the “Muddy Pool.” Plaintiff says he and other race participants were not warned of the hazards, and plaintiff went down and struck the bottom of the pool, suffering devastating and permanent injuries, including partial paralysis. Plaintiff seeks judgment in principal sum of $30 million.
