For the last competition, they just posted out the prizes to the winners (unless you had to specify a size...) - I only found out I had won when a big box of energy gels turned up on my doorstep!!

I won a t shirt (apparently) back at the start of November and have seen nothing yet, hope the advent prioze I've won does better than that

Posted: 21/12/2011 at 09:21

Looks like an IT cock-up - seems to be using yesterday's URL
Posted: 21/12/2011 at 09:45

Posted: 22/12/2011 at 08:13

Posted: 22/12/2011 at 08:27

Posted: 23/12/2011 at 09:57

CP I missed yesterdays too.

Posted: 23/12/2011 at 10:30

There's nothing on the sports persuit site reguarding enter?
Posted: 03/12/2012 at 14:23

How do you actually enter this, it just sends me straight to SportsPursuit website just showing their products?
Posted: 03/12/2012 at 18:37

Mmm, i am having the same issue?
Posted: 04/12/2012 at 10:40

Me as well.

How many of us need to comment on this before a solution arrives ?

Posted: 04/12/2012 at 11:38

think it depends what browser you are using,
Posted: 04/12/2012 at 13:12

I use google chrome. It doesn't work for me. 
Posted: 04/12/2012 at 13:24

is this still not working?
Posted: 04/12/2012 at 14:41

It's working now...

Posted: 04/12/2012 at 15:08

 I entered my email and password on Sports Pursuit website but I didn't receive a message stating I've been entered in the competition. Am I missing something?
Posted: 04/12/2012 at 16:37

This is driving me potty. I'm using safari as my browser and every link I try keeps taking me to the sales site only. I'm a member of Sport Pursuit and I've tried it logged in and logged out.

Silly. Silly. Silly. 

Posted: 04/12/2012 at 18:33

I can't enter the competition either.  I can access the Sport Pursuit site and log in, but no sign of the competition!
Posted: 04/12/2012 at 19:26

not working for a third day :-/
Posted: 05/12/2012 at 12:51

Grrrrr this years advent calendar is pants !! Have logged in all three days but it gives no acknowledgement you have entered anything.
Posted: 05/12/2012 at 14:43

Come on Runners World, start to consider your loyal subscribers and stop with this unnecessary jumping through marketing hoops! We've logged in to your website already so why try and make us log into another one to enter a competition??

 How about making this competition work for everyone rather than signing into Sport Pursuit, then clicking today's competition and then being sent back to Sport Pursuit's sales site?????

 Isn't it time you rewarded your loyal readers and subscribers rather than just those you're trying to sign up???

Posted: 05/12/2012 at 20:05

still can't enter


Posted: 05/12/2012 at 20:16

no competition on their site! no post about advent calendar on their facebook! no word about it! I am disappointed. I like your page and your comps - but PLEASE dont co-operate with such sites as sportpursuit. Seems that they dont know about involving (sponsoring) to your advent calendar. Really - pitty. So many days we come here and without any chance to enter. Send them "our warm greetings".(( Its minus 6 here in my place...
Posted: 05/12/2012 at 20:43

there is a section at the bottom of the sports pursuit website that says you have to log out if you are a member then it says to re-enter e-mail & password to be automatically entered into the comp, i agree there is no conformation that your entered but wouldn't be a rw comp without a few glitches!

This week's competition is hosted by Sport Pursuit. Next week, we're back to running them in the traditional way on the RW site rather than a partner's. This was a different way of running a competition and we have taken your comments on board as food for thought for any future competitions we run.

To enter, just fill in your email address in the lightbox that comes up with each day's competition. There is no confirmation email, but the lightbox only appears once - it disappears once you've entered until the next day's competition.
