A friend and I have both signed up (2nd ever marathon), but we're having trouble paying. The credit card /visa payment were denied so I wanted to try the Bank transfer, despite the fees. However my bank managed to stump me with one question, the name of the account I'm paying into. I can't see what part of the T&C instructions is the account name. I'm guessing its the L.go Franchellucci Roma?? If anyone could shed any light, that would be really helpful. Bank transfer, (bank charges are on the payer), to: Atielle Roma srl c/o Banca Popolare di Milano Ag.257 L.go Franchellucci Roma IBAN CODE: IT82G0558403206000000011690 SWIFT CODE: BPM IITM1257 Thanks
My first transation with my card was denied as well but I tried again which worked. I'm in the USA and wasn't sure it would work however make sure the name is exact on the card, for me I left out the middle initial which usually doesn't matter for this it did. I would definitely send off an email if your unsure about the bank transfer, you dont want to pay the wrong person. Just don't expect a swift response
I just uploaded my health form again last night so we'll see. Orig I had sent the wrong one (2009) which I got off their site so I sent the correct one they emailed 2x now.
Thanks for the info Anthony. I will give the card another go then. I've emailed them twice now and still no response. I managed to get the Transfer details translated by an italian friend over the internet and he said that it doesn't contain the account name.
These things are never simple. I'll keep an eye out for the health form, as I suspect I may have the wrong one too.
Thanks again, yes I did have the wrong one (as did my friend!). Have the correct one now and seem to have successfully paid. Just the health form to upload, flights and hotel .....oh yes and the months and months of training.
Congrats on successful payment, let me know when/if your health form is received. I've uploaded mine again a few days ago, still waiting...
I booked a great B&B 2 blocks from the Colosseum. I'm glad to be staying so close to the start/finish with a 9am start time which means extra sleep!
All my forms are NOW uploaded and I got my email confirmation, just waiting on the bib assignment now.
Anyone else headed to Rome??
am heading to rome for my 2nd marathon and first trip to rome, have uploaded information but not heard anything from them awaiting bib number. has anyone else heard from them? emailed them twice with no reply. i have got my email confirmation and have paid with my credit card with no problems,
Whats the name of the B&B you have booked near the coloseum??
Hey Pete, I'm still waiting for the confirmation letter myself even thou its been a week since I got the email saying my reg is complete. I'm sure it'll take a bit more time, after all I've been working on this 5 weeks now. I'm sure it's worth every hassle though and can't wait to get to Rome for my first time.
I've booked a room at Nicolas Inn, http://www.nicolasinn.com/en
so its taking you 5 weeks to get an email for reg is complete, cheers matey another four weeks to go then LOL!!! certainly will be worth the hassle am really looking forward to it will be amazing.
ive booked flights already and now need asome where to stay will be looking tonight
My Doctor has advised me the charge will be £88 so was wondering if this was right?! Thanks for your reply.
Thanks Asa i might try that.
Tom, i entered the Rome Marathon through the '209 events' website, they sort out the race entry and accommodation, you just need to sort out your flights. If you take a look at this website all the prices will be on there. Im currently at about 12 mile fitness, this will be my first marathon but i'm gonna train hard and get through it. Hope this helps.
Fancy this and the wife wants a few days of sight seeing., Any recomendations of hotels close to start/finish? ive checked out the flights and Ryan air aint bad from Stansted was about £180. for the 2 of us
I've had a medical recently for diving. So I need to do anything else for the health check?
Really want to run this one
hi i have also entered this race for 2011 and i will look forward it, once i get my payment sorted out.
the problem i have is, i tried to make payment with my card and it rejected it, then i used another card and again it also got rejected again
so i though i will enter another way and left it. then later i went to my email address and seen that two payment each for 40 euros has been taking out of my bank accounts that i tried to enter with earlier.
have any of you expericence this problem and if yes, how did you get your money back.
thanks in advance
There's no cutoff for Rome, you can register until close to race date. The longer you wait, the more you'll pay however. I would also start booking hotels asap, not much to choose from in terms of being close to the start/finish. I'm arriving from US the Sat before then vacationing the week after the race. Anyone run Rome b4? I'm curious how busy the expo will be on Sat, the last thing I want to do is stand in long lines.
I'm glad I registered early on and got my share of glitches out of the way! It'll be so worth it in the end
Uploaded! We uploaded! Going to ring one of the travel companies for a hotel at the end of the month. Should be a doddle compared with actually registering for the event!
We need a roll call on who's headed to Roma, where your staying, and how many marathons you've run!
I'm coming from Philadelphia & staying at Nicolas Inn B&B near start/finish. Roma will be marathon #11
