I hate having to register for an event with active.com
I'm going to complain to as many race directors as possible and suggest they NOT use active.com for event registration
I hate paying extra for a race because I have to register through Active. I will avoid the race and look for ones that don't require Active.

Thank you for your comment, Editor. The Peachtree Road Race generates an enormous interest from runners around the world and puts a significant load on our network. We take a several precautions to try to ensure we have enough network capacity to service the demand when these popular events come up.
But clearly, we have plenty of room for improvement. We will share your feedback with our IT department.
At Active.com, we're continuously investing in our infrastructure and depend greatly on feedback from participants like you to determine how best to spend.
Thank you once again.
I support your comments. Registering for the Peachtree Road Race is a nightmare. At the very beginning of the registration session, Active.com's Web site is unavailable for the registration. They obviously have not prepared for this event registration. As Editor, Computer Times, I find this totally unacceptable in the current Web environment where many retail stores can handle millions of orders a day.
