John Mixon, a founder of Run for the Fallen Maine sued co-founder Bob Winn and Winn's girlfriend, Diana Allen, after rumors of financial mismanagement were traced back to them.

OGUNQUIT, Maine (AP) _ The co-founder of a charitable road race from Ogunquit to Portland that raises money for the families of Maine military personnel killed in combat says a lawsuit he brought against another race co-founder who accused him of financial mismanagement has been settled.

John Mixon, who founded Run for the Fallen Maine in 2008, tells The Portland Press Herald the suit was settled in January but he is going public now to clear up any misconceptions that remain about the race.

Mixon sued co-founder Bob Winn and Winn's girlfriend, Diana Allen, after rumors of financial mismanagement were traced back to them.

Mixon says the settlement includes a six-figure sum, as well as a statement that questions about financial mismanagement "were unfounded and wrong.''

Winn and Allen refused comment.
