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.

All the fear, no idea.

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?

All the fear, no idea.

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;10732;421/st/20100904/e/Vitruvian+70.3/dt/6/k/b906/event.png

They seem to have fixed this now, I'm pre-registered. Now I just need to wait for the real registration...

Me too. The first step of a long journey!

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.

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?

All the fear, no idea.

I looked at Austria 70.3 but went for Germany instead, god knows why, it's much hillier;10732;421/st/20100904/e/Vitruvian+70.3/dt/6/k/b906/event.png
