Royal parks half marathon 11th October. Anyone had any joy getting onto the website to enter this today?
Seems to be down since before registration started. Grrrrrrr
Cool, at least it's not just me then
I got as far as getting my details in then it crashed again!!
I've managed to enter, but it took a long time. Other people in my office have been trying this morning but no-one else has had any luck. I've seen on other threads and other people are starting to get through.
Yeah, me too - Just managed again (I hope) ten minutes ago and my payment was taken -
It crashed three times after I got to the "submit" page but just went back and retried it again and again.
A couple more in my office have managed to sign up eventually - but they were both crashing at various stages this morning.
Keep on trying!
What a shambles really.
Been trying all morning to get in - either website down, or got to home page a couple of times and could get no further. It's not like it was a surprise that people would be wanting to enter at 9am to make sure of a place, especially as they had encouraged us all to register for notification of the opening of entries.
Makes you wonder how they prepared to launch this year's event. Let's face it, it hasn't exactly got off to a flying start!
If you get to the 'proceed to payment gateway' screen, it will crash. I kept pressing the back arrow and trying again. BUT then i tried f5 'refresh' instead and i was straight in.
Just off to check if i have a e-mail of confirmation..................
Well you may be right Jason but it did get rave reviews last year. And i have managed to register so i am staying cheerfully optimistic!
Only took me 4 and a half hours. with a short break for lunch...................
Me too - stuck on payment gateway AGAIN - so bored....
I did the race last year and apart from a couple of minor issues (like not enough toilets at the start) it was very well organised - so I would assume the same would apply this year (for the race that is). The entry process was much easier last year as fewer people knew about it - though it still sold out v quickly. I agree they should of anticipated the numbers of people trying to sign up this morning - it was always going to be a popular race given there a very few HM in London.
I would have thought they would use a different entry system next year. Does anyone know how they do places for the Great North Run?
I haven't been able to register either and frankly I'm about to give up - I ran it last year and thought the lack of toilets was a disgrace - and if this is an indication that they still can't accurately predict demand then I don't have much confidence in their organisation this year either.
Really, really poor.
Can anyone tell me how much it is to register for the race in the first place? I can't even get to the home page to find out that simple bit of information.
It's a bit of a joke, I got as far as confirming payment, gives me a link to a payment 'gateway' but the button simply does not do anything, I don't think this is related to server load it just doesn't work, have tried to contact them to explain but they say keep trying. Hopeless... shame it was a great race last year.
Is it worth continuously clicking on the payment portal button? (those that have registered) my workmates are getting upset about the clicking noise.
Can I join in this waste of time please?? I've been trying to register since 9.30... Haven't managed to get past the hme page - couldnt even get that far most of the morning!
Oh try this, head butting the wall behind me is more fun. and less painful, I think I might have as good a chance of registering this way too.
