Below is an article discussing an issue that can occur during registration: Two registrations for the event with the same name and email but are different athletes. Their registrations appear to be the same and editing one will affect the other.

Why has this occurred?

This duplicate/linked registration occurred because both participants registered under the same user account in a single transaction and the second participant was registered by selecting the option Myself, 18 or above and Copy information from the first participant, instead of selecting "Someone else, 18 or older"This also occurs if the person that registered both participants claims both registrations under his/her account.

How do we fix this?

  1. Confirm who is the actual owner of the registration email address
  2. Edit one participant's information to the email owner's personal information
  3. Keep one registration unchanged
  4. Cancel the other Registration Without Refund 
  5. Ask the second participant to be re-registered
    1. If registrant is doing re-registration, you can create Discount Code to be used at checkout, in order to avoid having the participant pay twice. There are two options for registrant to re-register:
      1. The original payer (1st participant) re-registers for the 2nd participant by selecting Someone else, 18 or older

  1. The 2nd participant (18+) establishes his/her own user account to register by selecting Myself, 18 or above

  1. Alternatively, the Event Director can register the 2nd participant by completing an offline registration.
  • Note: Before start an offline registration, please ensure to have necessary registration information of the participant at hand, i.e. personal details and registration form question answers.
