Was looking to enter a particular race. It did not have an entry form or an email address. It just gave a telephone number which looked like a skype thing. I must admit my ignorence about all things skype. Does this mean that I have to have a PC with a camera on it to contact them or is it just a telephone call but it is forcing me to buy skype credit to use it. It said something about needing to buy credit or is it more than a telephone call when you get through. I did try just dialling the number from a landline and it said invalid number.
What race is this ? I cant see that they'll just be getting entries by Skype ? You can just have an audio conversation with them - but you need to download the program.
Seems odd. Did you accidentally add the Skype add-on that shows an icon for Skype-able numbers? You'd probably see the Skype function on other sites too.
Thanks. that makes sense. The computer is a new one so I am seeing it in other places too so must have come preloaded with Skype.
So , if I read this right, the fact that it has the Skype icon on means I can Skype it but alternatively I should just be able to ring it and the fact that it came back with invalid number just means that it was a misprint or I dialled it wrong from the land line rather than anything more.
When I googled the race, I ended up with 2 or 3 different sites which just gave this number and I tried a couple of the 'look for races' sites and came up empty. I have since tried a couple more of these sites and found one that does list it and this does give an Email address for me to chase up.
If you told us the race it might help ?
Dont worry - I probably wont be entering it and nicking the places.
Sorry cougie it was actually the croxteth hall 10 k in Liverpool at the end of the month. After putting the problem on this site, I did find it listed with an Email address on Runners World itself which I should really have checked before putting the problem in although I had checked 3 other places via google. The main one was the whats on at Croxteth Hall which was giving me the skype number only
