    Looks like I am signing up for this race - work is having a global marketing meeting September 25-30 in Sweden, so they'll sponsor the 'big flight' to/from Europe and I just have to find a way from Paris to Sweden one way after the race.

    Not much time to prepare at all - but omg, I didn't think this was even a possibility. :love:


    EDIT:
    BIB PURCHASED. REGISTRATION SAYS 0%. WORKING ON GETTING WAIVER DONE. WHAT ELSE IS LEFT?

    Glad you can mix pleasure (if you can call running a half marathon(?) pleasure :hyper2:) with business!

    Will you be earning a Castle to Chateau medal?

    Have any of you had problems with entering your phone number on the registration site? I keep getting an error saying "invalid phone format". So I can't chose my shirt size or daddy emergency contact. I wrote an email and got the respons that it would work now, well, it didn't so I wrote again and once again they replied that it would work now, and it doesn't! I really want to get the registration done now, since I have finally been able to upload my medical certificate. Hoping to hear from then again soon.

    Try to do not enter your country code and also skip the zero at the beginning of your phone number!

    If your phonenumber is like +45 2345 6789, try only to enter 2345 6789. Worked for me, ...

    We figured out what happened with my mom's 5K registration - it registered ME instead of her! She registered me for the 10K and Half as I was camping and without internet access, then she used the "register another family member" option to register herself for the 5K. When I log in, I see my 10K and Half registration and was able to finish it out, upload medical and race certificates and am done. But when she logs in as herself, it shows a 5K registration under my name and info instead of hers. She distinctly recalls putting in HER info and she has a separate payment receipt for her 5K. We've both emailed multiple times but nobody is responding.

    All we need is for them to change the registration to her name, even if it's a transfer. Anybody had this same issue or any luck with a cancelation or transfer? I suggested to my mom that she just register again for the 5K (since it's still open) and dispute the first charge with her credit card company to resolve it quickly, before any deadlines.

    Registration is at 75% - waiting on the medical waiver form to be filled out. This is so tricky - and stressful! :(

    Castle to Chateau information entered with my race certificate from Tinkerbell. Shirt size filled out too..... I wish I wasn't traveling so much this month because I am stressing out about getting that waiver completed. No one is returning my phone calls and emails! :sad2:

    Phone calls?? What line are you calling? The only contact info I've seen is that email address but would love another option to try.

    It's an untimed fun run. Rather than deal with a chargeback, she could just run with the bib in your name. Unless she intends to keep the bib for sentimental reasons?

    We've discussed that, just weren't sure how strict they were on it. I suppose we could just put her shirt size on that registration and call it good.

    Can I just say how much I hate the enrollment system? For some reason the system keeps rejecting my Tink race certificate - so I don't think it was submitted. Emailed them the doc with the finalized registration and a note that I'm doing the Disneyland Half in three weeks.

    UGH - why so much stress for a bonus medal?!

    Good luck. I'm sure everything will work out. All the stress will make crossing the finish line and earning those medals that much sweeter.:-)

    So glad it worked out for you ! I saw the medals and was tempted to book this one because of it. I even have the airline miles available and flights are available. However, the overall cost is just too much with all the other races I have on tap.

    I hope you have a blast!

    For those that did the races last year, were bib numbers, corrals, and the event guide released two weeks prior (similar to US races)?

    Just in a case anyone is curious, or is waiting for a response to an email you sent, I received a response yesterday to my email from a month ago. So, it took them some time, but they did eventually answer.

    In the email I received yesterday, they said bib numbers would be available 15 days in advance.

    It's getting close - leaving in 15 days :cool1: Making costumes at the moment - so excited!!! ::MickeyMo

    But I have had so many problems with the registration!!! I wasn't able to do the registration because I kept getting an error message that my phone number was invalid.... I have been in contact with them on email and on facebook. They have been very helpful, but it took them 2 or 3 weeks to get it to work. I tried every combinations of my phone number, they tried to put it in, but it still didn't work. Finally they succeeded putting my number in and I gave then permission to finish my registration (agree to terms and condition, put in my shirt size, adding my emergency contact etc.). And finally my registration was done and my medical certificate accepted. BUT my friend had the same issues (we booked together), we gave them permission to fix it and it worked - sort of. I told them that she hadn't uploaded her medical certificate yet since she couldn't get a doctors appointment until 29/8. I got a reply that it was ok and she just had to upload it before 1/9. After she went to the doctor she went online to upload the certificate. But now her registration said 100% and pending, so she couldn't access her registration account. Again I had to write to them. They have sent it to the techs and changed our password. It still isn't working and we're getting a bit nervous about the situation.
    This has really been annoying and a lot of time to get it to work. Waiting for an answer - we really want to get her medical certificate uploaded and approved.

    Has anyone else had this problem??????

    I know the event guide will be out soon, but does anyone know, or expect based on last year, whether they will have pacers during the half? If so, how far apart (10 minutes between pacers, 15, 5)? TIA.
