Spring Grove extreme race cancelled as organization shuts down

SPRING GROVE — Hard Charge Chicago 2014, a four-mile race previously scheduled for Saturday, July 19 in Spring Grove, has been cancelled along with all future Hard Charge events, according to a Visit McHenry County press release.

The Hard Charge organization recently released a statement indicating plans to immediately cease all business operations due to a lack of resources.

Those who have registered for the event will not be refunded by Hard Charge due to its difficult financial standing, the release states.

The organization states, also, it is filing Notice of Intent to Dissolve with the proper authorities.

"We [Visit McHenry County] regret Hard Charge's decision and the inconvenience it may cause our partners and pre-registered athletes," Jaki Berggren, Executive Director of Visit McHenry County, said.
