I got in too!

I am stupidly excited about this, I couldnt get tickets for the olympics or paralympics so I'm excited just to be inside the stadium.

Hi Tony

I'm the same in that we tired our best at all hours to get Olympic Tickets and failed.

We know have tickets for the anniversary games, and now this

10,00 is a lot of tickets/runners, but who cares, we are going to be part of a once in a life time experience.

I'm in and so excited ! This after VLM is just great, it must be the thought of just 5 miles and not the 26 + that I run (hobbled) around on Sunday but most of all I get to finish in the Olympic Park ! Wowzer

It's now full.

I'm in, so is OH and a friend, both virtually non runners inspired by VLM which they both saw for the first time last week when they came to support me - don't know what we'll do with the kids mind you. Went to Paralympics last year and can't believe will actually be running in the Olympic Stadium - unreal

I'm in. Didn't manage to get Olympic tickets or even tickets for the anniversary games, so I'm well happy I'll now not only get to go to the stadium... but run on the track as well.

One question though: Does anyone actually know what time it starts? Can't see it anywhere? What time was it last year just for a rough idea of whether going up and back the same day is realistic or not?

mrs s has had her place confirmed just waiting for a confirmation email having emailed them, might even have 1 spare place because think mrs has 2 places thanks to me making a cock up. will post on here if i have and give it for the run i did it last year and it was great even though i had flu and chest infection so a chance to beat my course pb is on. hope they play chariots of fire as you run out onto the track like last time! gave away my spectator places last time and might have a couple spare this time but once again will post here

Can't wait, the last time I was in the stadium I watched Mo win the 10k. Hoping I can get my OH and kids into the fun run otherwise there will be a fight for the stadium places!

Legend777 - did it last year, from memory i think it started about 1.30/2 depending on which colour start you get. Got in this morning before everything crashed. Last year was great experience even though in realiy it was 4.5 miles around a building site with final 0.5 mile into the stadium and in the track being the highlight. Looking forward to repeating the experience and chariots of fire as you enter under the stadium

Has anyone received a confirmation email. Paid and said successful but didn't received a confirmation? Did anyone else have this?
26/04/2013 at 07:49

no Gary, but I printed my receipt just to be sure.

26/04/2013 at 08:52

Gary, Andy, yes I received the email. I also received the followup email from the team confirming my entry. They have asked (via twitter) that if you have not had the email to send them your name and reference number and they will check the systems and confirm that you are in all the right places. the twitter account is and the email to send details to is

Their facebook page has an FAQ

Legend777 you were looking for start times? this is what it says:

"The final timetable is still to be confirmed, however we are working towards a 10am start for the event. The Family event will start after 12 noon"

Thanks Rachel - just sent them an e-mail.

26/04/2013 at 09:58

The confirmation email I got came from - so if you haven't got it yet double check your junk/spam folders for that address

I'll wait and see for now.

Hello neighbour. Nice name.
you're only renting it.

I'm in and very excited for that final 300 metres. Now do I
a) Take the final 300 metres slow, enjoy the atmosphere and thrill of being on the same running track where Mo won gold
b) Sprint the final 300 metres emulating the glory of Mo's final lap

In my case both options are the same!  My sprint is slow too!
