The battle that ensued regarding the sale of the current Running Hall of Fame Building is over.

In an e-mail sent to Running Hall of Fame and Boilermaker Executive Tim Reed this morning, Feed Our Vets Founder, Richard Synek said he would no longer purchase the building to house his organization.

Synek wrote in an e-mail that, “The contract has been pulled and is now null and voided. FOV does not want the men and women and the 200 children we feed to be exposed to people who have no respect for them and are not welcomed in the West Baggs Square area.”

The controversy began when the owners of the Utica Coffee Roasting Company and The Tailor and the Cook, expressed concern regarding the non-profits move into the downtown area.
