Missed last years race for the first time in years to do another so had to enter via the ballott system - has anyone heard the results yet?

I didn't get a place.

There was a link on the GNR website earlier to check if you got in . It's gone now though for some reason.

I'm totally confused now Kev. Just checked the GNR website again and this time I have got a place!

I think their system has fallen over!

Best wait for the email to be sure of what's happening.

Kev, the link s now working on the GR website.

And this time I have got a place!

Just Checked and did not get a place. I do not know what the criteria was or was it just lucky dip.

Have done GNR 7 years on the trot but missed last year. Already have a place for Great South Run, so very dissapointed. Apparently there is another ballot in 2 weeks time after intial winners have had a chance to confirm their interest. So fingers crossed fro that.

It was just lucky dip.

I'm sure that there will be plenty of dropouts, when people panic when they get a place. There's always the option of running for a charity.

Best of luck.

Yeap, no place for me either. Registered step-mum and b/f and they both got a place!

Not sure if I'm pleased or not :-!

Sorry you didn't get in Mitten. Not fair that you registered others and then didn't get a place yourself.

I'm in and so's my sis - she got in on the Times Ballot. Did it last year for the first time but had a charity place then. Loved it, and v glad we'll be there again!

Yipee i'm in to. Going back to my roots at the Toon. ( live in midlands now)

I got my email today. Thought the chances of getting a place would be pretty slim - and guess what - got a place!! Only recently started running and someone suggested GNR would be a good incentive to keep going(?) Paid my fee straight away so there's no backing out now!
16/02/2005 at 16:08
yup, got in today. should be good.
16/02/2005 at 16:12
Got email today saying I was in.

I was a former Times "early-entry ballot", then put into main ballot.

What are the chances of that happening ?

Can't say I'm bothered either way now !

16/02/2005 at 16:18
Me in too - same way as Karl - former Times entry. Received email today - paid - and place confirmed!!

I'm in too!
Never done it before
Just got to work out how to get there now
16/02/2005 at 16:33
I've missed out!

We were organising the trip - all for nothing
16/02/2005 at 16:39
I missed out too. I sort of thought I wouldn't mind not doing it but now find myself dissapointed!
