Ideally I need 3 spectator places.

Mum, Dad and Girlfriend. Hopefully nearer the time they'll put out some information on weather this is possible.

Chris & Dawn, I have emailed them to see if more tickets will be available to buy, the 1st 4.5 miles of the course will be open for spectators if not I guess, I i'll let you know what they say,

The stadium holds more than 10,000 people so i see no reason why they wont look for a way to cash in on the rest.

i hope not everyone buys 2 or 3 more.... running into a stadium with 20,000 spectators...eek, no pressure

According to the website spectators will be penned in the stadium itself so theres no opportunity to go outside of it. It is probably down to the amount of food infrastructure they can lay on for their budget more than anything else. I got in and I am really looking forward to it!!

yeah i just read the FAQ, lets see what they say if they reply,

anyone found a link to the terms and conditions for the run? i cant find them, i just fancied a browse, it seems quite a strictly ran event, and it seems you have to wear your event shirt to run in. just wanted to confirm that or see if its like other ones where its just there as an option.

I think it is going to be a very controlled media day to be honest - I am guessing there will be a BBC presence there on the day so a sea of same t-shirts is what they want. I read the FAQ yesterday and it does seem very controlling but it's an experience.

two of my club (Thanet RR)  have knock backs and one has got a yes! i noted this on the site...

The ballot will be drawn randomly after by Friday 4 November

When will I know if I've secured a place in the run?

All successful and unsuccessful participants in the run will be notified by email on or by 4 November.

so think we will all know by friday.......

I'm in - I heard on 28 October!  Can't wait...

Am looking forward to it only five miles but what a place to run it should be a special never got in London Marathon yet again so this makes up for that disapointment see the lucky ones there like me

I've had a rejection too

Just in case it's possible to transfer entries, why don't we start a waiting list for transfers...?  As the race approaches, there will always be people who can't run through injury

Nothing ventured, nothing gained

@Elizabeth Elmore-Elkin

Did you check your spam folder?

It seems most people have been emailed one way or the other by now.

my son got in too so that's both of us!

 I had to email them to find out if he had a place as I hadn't heard! I think the National Lottery communication was filtered and banned by our company as I can't get onto the National lottery homepage from work either
