Can you please let me know how to refund my money for FAILED transaction?

On May-12-2011, When I tried to register first time for open 10K run, my transaction using online banking was failed.

Then I was successfully able to register using my debit card.

I do not see failed transaction details anywhere when I logged in using the above credentials.
