    anyone else waiting for online entries for ironmanuk? i've been waiting at my computer (of course i am at work so thats pretty easy....) all morning (ok, since 8.45) to enter and i havent had an email from them yet and the website is not giving me any clues[:@]

    it would be better if they used a system like they have on ticketmaster so we can see that we are in a queue and not getting big errors pages which are intended for webmasters

    just got the confirmation email, first IM here we come

    (30 weeks left, not that im counting....)
  • Grrr - I keep getting errors, it's rubbish. Just cleared my browsing data and started again and registration is now closed
  • Got to the payment page only to be declined, then a call from bank to say my credit card has been fraudently used.

    Try to use a different card only to be told entries closed, it now says try again in 60 minutes!!!!
  • Perseverence is the key. :) A little more success here, I've got the registration email but when I go to view the e-ticket it says it can't be found?? Has anyone else experienced this? I 'think' it might be because the ticket takes up to 7 days to be processed.
  • Doh! [:)]

    The online entry will send you confirmation initially with a BLANK E Ticket. When you have been accepted in full by both the E Commerce system and IRONMAN UK System you will be send a new E Ticket with all the details of your enrty and transaction including your race number.

    In my defence the ticket isn't blank, it just says it can't be found - surely you can still find a blank ticket [:)] doh, doh, doh!
  • 2hrs 55mins to get in. Must be some kind of record?

    My first IM, bring on the training!!!

    The site is still crashing on me - I got as far as entering my credit cards details and then it bombed and has continued to do so ever since.

    My first ever use of a smiley.....[:@] [:@] - in fact make it a double.

    its only fitting that the entry should be an endurance event - you need iron will just to get in
  • [:D]Im in no problem first attempt at 3.30pm cannot believe it is in bolton, only live half an hour away,brother- in law lives in bolton as well,no need to worry about accomadation,travel etc.

  • So, anyone got any ideas on the course??

    tritalk going on about 3 choices for the swim with rivington seeming to be most popular. At least the water will be flat!!

    Swim is my weakest discipline, the registration letter states a fast bike course compared to last year at sherbourne, with a trip to southport anyone ever ride this way???

    And a flat run course it says. Just hope the great british summer comes around as Bolton in the rain doesnt sound inspiring
  • wow I am in gulp here we go one long hard trining session on its way
  • Hi
