UK 70.3 2010 Preregistration

Having been firmly bitten by the tri bug this year I thought i'd step up to a half ironman next year to give my training some focus over the winter. I saw that pre registration for next years UK 70.3 had opened but when I try to register I keep getting a 500 - Internal Server Error (I've tried a few times since yesterday on a few computers).

Has anyone else tried and got this problem or is it just me? And how long do they keep the pre-reg open for? There doesn't seem to be an email address to contact them about it either.

    On a whim I just tried myself... Got the same message.

    Quite relieved in a way.

    In a moment of madness (well deep down I know it's what I want to do, and ought to do), I had a go at pre-registering, and yep, failure.

    Wish I had my HR monitor at the time, becuase I think I would have set a new max when I finally pressed the submit button.

    Incidentally, as an alternative I was looking at the Austrian 70.3 on May 30th 2010.

    190 euros to enter (so 190 quid these days)... really tempted you know. Oh christ what in gods name am I doing?

    At least it's not just me that can't get it to work. Would be nice if they fix it before I chicken out though...

    Me too. My sphincter is twitching just thinking about it, and it nearly 12 months away, and I can't even pre-register yet.

    Hi Guy's,

    I wouldn't worry this happened last year as far as I remember, you shouldn't be worried about pre-registration your only signing up to say your interested, now once your actual entry is in, that's when you should start to shit yourself

    Just add my name to the Internal Server Error guys...lets hope they sort this out soon
  • jibby26jibby26 Posts: 261
    They seem to have fixed this now, I'm pre-registered. Now I just need to wait for the real registration...

    I've pre-reg'd too. I've got one sprint done. Possibly the Goodness Shakes one at the weekend, a couple more of the f3 ones, and then barcelona OD in october.

    I think I've probably got something wrong with me

    It's not just you, it's all of us, must be a mid season thing. Don't let the press find out something is going around, or we'll have another pandemic on our hands!

    Have just pre-registered. Still fancy the Austrian 70.3 at the end of May, but thought I'd hedge my bets.

    Oh god... Can we pre-register for Coneheads Long Distance Rookie Day as well?

    and a little less hilly - my legs still hurt - still, I have preregistered too - glutton for punishment - but I might miss it if I can get a slot at IM Switzerland 2010

    Pre-registered as well. Going back to Wimbleball for another go. Loved every minute of it. See you there?!?
  • willtriwilltri Posts: 436
    why do i read this forum I'm now finding out about packages to austria 70.3
  • grant1974grant1974 Posts: 262
    I looked at Austria 70.3 but went for Germany instead, god knows why, it's much hillier
  • gavinrigg06gavinrigg06 Posts: 176
    Do they not do a 70.3 in Holland, it's nice and flat there !!!
  • I have pre-registered to go back to Wimbleball and smash my time!! Still think the organisers should put the race start back to about 7 or 8 to avoid the standing around and waiting at the beginning; still blaming that for my cramp (and sunburn)

    flavadave and willtri... I am 99.9999999% certain to do Austria 70.3 2010... the only thing holding me back at the moment is the check that some chums that live 30Km away can put me up. It should be happening though.

    See you there!

  • FlavadaveFlavadave Posts: 749
    Nice one didds!

    Might casually ask the misses tonigth if she fancies a break in Austria. Just checking the date as well and the Monday after is Bank holiday. Sweet!

    Same plan - couple of glasses of wine and then.... "austria's supposed to be lovely at this time of year"!!
