BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The Boulder County District Attorney’s Office wants to force the director of the Boulder Marathon to refund nearly $200,000 in entry fees from two canceled races.

The Daily Camera reports (http://bit.ly/1sW2cVq ) DA Stan Garnett has sued Jeff Mason and his company, saying the race director continued to collect entry fees for the 2014 race that he eventually canceled even though he knew he had failed to secure the necessary permits. The lawsuit claims Mason, despite telling runners he would roll over their entry fees from the canceled 2013 and 2014 races, has no money on hand for a 2015 marathon.

Mason didn’t return calls for comment Tuesday.

The 2013 Boulder Marathon was canceled due to flooding, and Mason canceled the 2014 race, citing “hurdles and challenges” presented by the flood and recent deaths in the local running community.
