Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2014 Registration-3rd Time the Charm?

Leave a comment

I know that I have posted about registering for the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2014 twice already. The first time, I had assumed that the registration would go through and be sold out right away. Unfortunately, technical difficulties on the website allowed only 20% of the runners to register.

Then, the second time was not successful either. I was surprised that they would have so much trouble! I was really disappointed. A lot of people were wasting a lot of time trying to register and they were still not successful!

Finally, they posted that the new registration day would not be until several days later, Monday, February 3, 2014 at 10:00 AM PST. That has given their tech team plenty of time to straighten out the kinks I should hope. The way they put it though, ‘win the race to register’ is quite discouraging…they sold out so quickly last year, I wonder if people will get a fighting chance?

I checked out the ‘new’ registration instructions and am not too confident about my chances. First, you will go into a waiting room. It warns us that depending on demand, it could take up to an hour before we can get confirmation! That doesn’t sound so good to me.

I now know why there were so few local runners registered last year (I worked at the package pick up and the majority of runners were from out of town)…I think that we Vancouver runners underestimated the popularity of this event and didn’t think that there was any rush to register. By the time that they did, it was all sold out…

I’m still on the fence whether I should bother to waste yet more time trying to register tomorrow. I’m already registered for other full marathons this year, so I was hoping to do this one, just for the fun and all the events. Guess I’ll find out tomorrow!

UPDATE: I just went on the seawheeze website to see if I could register and how long it would take. I went on at 10:00 AM PST sharp and was only in the waiting room for 5 minutes. So if somebody wanted to register, it seemed to be working and not too long of a wait.

Success! I decided not to register after all but was pleased to see that all was fine on the site in case I did want to.

UPDATE: Seawheeze sold out within hours today. Were you successful?
