Oct 2010 - My big challenge...
Hi WR I when to Mallorca in Oct 2007 and we got one day that flooded some roads in Alcudia!
Saying that I'm looking to enter my first marathon and so far this looks quite good. I can also convince the Mrs with the promise of a holiday!
Not sure were I would stay though... Only been up North... Very very tempting!
WR, just being checking out the route and I maybe tempted to stay at Playa de Palma. Looks close and also on the route itself.
Mrs has agreed, so looks like I will book a week out there!
GeeForce - did this issue get resolved?
I've entered the full, and my wife entered the half on 9th May. Its now the 24th, and still no payment on my card. I got an email saying we are registered though.
I emailed the marathon organisers to see if there was a problem, but no-one has replied as of yet
Same for me payless, received confirmation e-mail but no money taken from my account, their website down today also it seems. Booked my flights and hotel so hope no problems with the run itself.
Just tried the website and its still down.
I also emailed Thomson Sport to see if they could help - unfortunately, they said tht the organisation was nothing to do with them - its up to TUI marathon to get back to me.
Flights are booked, hotel is booked, training schedule planned, just need the entry fee paid so I can enter into this without worrying!
Nope - still haven't had a payment taken from my card...
I emailed the address on the confirmation email, (email@example.com) asking if my registration was OK as my card had not been charged yet, the replied on 19th April with, (quote)
"yes, that is correct. The Entry was not charged yet. But it will be during the next weeks. Please do not worry!"
I'm on the List Of Participants though, but I notice there appear to be 2 websites now?
I registered with the first one, (which also has the "List Of Participants" link) I think I will email them again later today
I sent them an email yesterday - but as of yet, no reply.
Hope they take the money soon, the credit card I used expires next Monday..............!!!!
Might have to ring them tomorrow
Looks like the money came out of my account today - entered 4 April
Looking forward to it
Just checked my credit card account and - finally, my card has been charged too
At least I'm more confident now that I don't get a puzzled Mallorcan saying "Que?" to me when I turn up on Saturday afternoon to register!
16 weeks to go...
Glad to see there is a good british presence at this. Count me in!!
Second marathon and looking forward to bit of summer training-starting monday!!
Better check they taken my money though!
Started my training this week!!!!!
stil not had the money taken from account though (paid on 9th May)
Managed to get Drs certificate - nice to know that all the booze hasn't affected me (yet)
Hmmm. interesting, this is off the T&C
Participation is at own risk. Adequate training, the requisite
health and physical condition including a doctor’s certificate
thereof are mandatory
Well spotted...! I wonder if they'll want to see this at the registration event then...?
That's a good spot - I'd better make sure I've got this covered - could you imagine it? You turn up ready and raring to go and they don't let you run...
I'e had a calf problem, then hay feer/asthma so training has been curtailed to about 5k to 10k per week. I may need to go for the half-marathon instead.
When I went to the Doctors, I got the feeling he was pleased to do me a certificate saying I was fit enough - I think it made a change from the usual sicknotes and repeat prescriptions!
