Pól Ó MurchúAug 31 2021, 1:47pmHi Cora, you are not entered into this race. Please check the format of the phone number is in the required format…this is the most common reason for payments failing and is called out in the error message you are getting…
Patricia RyanAug 31 2021, 10:20pmPhone number format needs to be as per instructions on payment page 353|8********
Cora FentonSep 3 2021, 8:34amHi Patricia, thank you, the phone number kept going back to the 087 format but eventually got there, thank you for your help. i am entered and looking forward to it. see all on 18th Sept. Kind regards

Don O'LearySep 6 2021, 8:49pmHi, I tried registering 4/5 times last night for the glen of Aherlow half but it rejected my card due to error.
Is there any other form of payment?

Peter TiernanSep 11 2021, 9:58amHello

Can I register on the day? I would love to run it but online is already closed (why closed so early?!)

Thank you
Patricia RyanSep 11 2021, 12:56pmPeter, no late entries or entry on the day I'm afraid. These larger events always close 2/3 weeks in advance in order to plan for prizes/tshirts and refreshments etc.
