  • Hi vyberman, just click on the day above and scroll down for the question! If it's not displaying properly (we're having problems with Internet Explorer) you could try another browser?

    Thanks and good luck!

  • Any idea on the winners?
  • Come on TW. The RW calendar has almost 2 weeks of results available.

    What is the delay here?

  • Yeah not sure what is going on they seem to promote it all well and good.  Even the terms and conditions state the prize winners will be announced on the friday each week!
  • Ive entered both rw and tw comps and won naff all I,m a loserimage
  • I won a Tshirt  in the September daily comp and never got it!!
  • Today 13th, the comp page is closed already !!!
  • It was that id just hadn't opened yet. Is open now image
  • where are the winners...........come on TW
  • ther are no winners its a front to up thier ratings ........losersimage
  • Triathletes world magazine has been discontinued i have just been told after ringing them, i took out a subscription in october, they took my money in october, sent me a letter to say i would start getting my magazine in december. when i recieved nothing and rang them yesterday they have been messing me about and trying to pass my details on to another magazine i dont want, and they are still advertising for subscibers on the internet. Im wasting a small fortune in phone calls to get a refund. they are not helpful. All looks like a rip off to me.

  • The magazine has yes been discontinued so you should either get your money back or change magazines etc.  However, they have said that the internet stuff was going to continue.  So to me that means that they should be responding to messages such as these ones regarding competitions.

  • Hi all,

    Apologies for the delay posting the winners - an up to date list will be on the homepage later today and updated weekly.

    With regard to magazine subscriptions, runmummy, we're so sorry to hear you've been round the houses on this. Drop us a message through the site or an email (alice (dot) palmer (at) natmag-rodale (dot) co (dot) uk) with your contact details and we'll get it sorted for you.

  • @CornishDigger - we're looking into your missing t-shirt as well. So sorry to hear you haven't received it.

    <Checks time>

    H'mm, I wonder how much later today the winners list'll be posted?

    Someone must be on overtime at RW/TW Towers.

  • It's on Kona time...
  • Give Alice a break. Come on folks, at least she pops into the forum now and again and helps out where she can.

    I wish there was only one thing on my to-do list from today that slipped!

    You won't have won the competition anyway so what are you so worried about.

     (who got a nice little Pirate flag from Alice - thank you)

  • Loser again but I must be getting close cos I run with one of the winners image
  • M.eface.......I would give Alice a break if she was a volunteer....buit she is a paid employee to I assume as she is the one who comes on the forums it is in her job description to answer the queries that arise from the forums.......
    and we have been patient as its mid December now.......
    i agree taht we shouldn't be nasty or offensive to her as she is just doing her job but I think we can assume to have answers
  • The results are up for last week - isn't that enough? image

    I'm pretty sure the RW/TW team is small now and they outsource a lot to magicalia so Alice's hands could be pretty much tied. However if they can respond to people on Twitter (for TW and RW), why can't they reply here?

  • Hey guys, calm down and don't shoot the messenger, it's a free competition to celebrate Christmas and I'm sure Alice is doing what she can.
  • Yep, the winners list for the first week is finally up, only 4 (working) days late image

    I'm sure it's not Alice's fault and suspect she is probably almost as frustrated as us for being given info to pass on which then proves to be innacurate.

    Well as a result of this flippant comment I today got a message from the competition sponsors (Xempo).  So a big thank you to Alice for that. I did not expect anything from a little forum comment.

    It appears I may have deleted an email from Xempo in error, I was the only winner who did not respond.

    Silly Old Hector!!   (for those old enough to remember)

  • Daniel - the reason people are frustrated is because we are getting less and less support and even simple questions are taking ages to be solved with no explanation of what's going on. Noone is saying the world is about to end but a bit more communication from the tech team would go along way.
  • Alice said it would be done yesterday, it wasn't, but it was done today. In my world Alice is only 1-day behind her commitment to get it done and that is fine with me. I am sure they have plenty to do at the moment.

    As I said there was more than one thing on my to do list yesterday that slipped to today and some of them are now on tomorrow's list.

     Bear in mind that they are likely to do  the twitter feed themselves but if website is outsourced it may not happen as quick as they  want.

    None of you regulars have won anything. There is scant chance of you winning anything anyway. 40 forum regulars vs. 2,000 professional competitioners with 10 email addresses apiece. 40/20000 so a 1 in 500 chance of winning.

    Now - nothing to see here please move along. image

    Except that, according to the competition page itself, the first winners list should've been posted last Friday.

    And no, I don't really expect to win anything but I can still live in hope image

    Yes but Alice didn't put her name to that - only parties unknown did. Alice commited to getting it done and got it done with a 1-day slippage. I suggest picketing RW Towers.

    Alternatively if you want sports kit I suggest you steal some from work.image
