Fake Running Events

I've been reporting on a story to do with female runners in Yorkshire fearing they've fallen victim to a running event scam. 'She Runs The Night' was advertised as a women's only race in Sheffield on Friday night and in Leeds on Saturday. Runners paid around twenty pounds each but both city councils say although they did receive enquiries, the bookings were never made and the events are not due to take place. Running events elsewhere in the country under the same name, with the same organiser also failed to materialise.
