Pack arrived today: Being in the red wave, I've got 2 red spectator wristbands. Really could do with an extra one. Can anyone oblige?

the facebook page is where ive seen most spare passes given away.
23/03/2012 at 13:29
Anybody know of any spare places? Would love to do this but didnt get in!

someone on the facebook wall posted that they cant run due to unforeseen circumstances, might be worth messaging them?

you wont get her wrist band passes though, they are in high demand and swallowed up by others within mins of going on the fb page.

in other news....less than 1 week

Hi Marc,

Thanks for the response, I can't seem to find that message on the Facebook event?

10th reply down, by elain.

the wristbands have been taken but i see no mention of the race place.

its a long shot but a polite message costs nothing.

Thanks Marc!

 I have pretty much given up now, but have sent a message, you never know!

I am in desperate need of 1 white wristband for one very devastated little lad who will be heart broken if he is unable to go. I have tried the Facebook page but to no avail. I have called Nova trying to explain but was told that they were unable to help unless my child was under 2 to which they can accommodate if you supply all the details they will provide extra wristbands at no extra charge to collect on the day

Patsy - I have one spare white spectator wristband. I have two kids, and both are reconciled to not going (couldn't take one without the other). Let me know how best to contact you.

what a fantastic event, the organisation was outstanding, the Great run people really did a great job, the entertainment (from what i saw) was good, the race itself was very well organised, the olympic stadium looks great (the rest of the course is still a little bit of a building site) but the workers were cheering everyone around,
Everyone who took part seems genuinely thrilled to have a place and i even got to meet some of Team GB's former athletes,
Running through the tunnel and into the stadium was a truly awesome memory i will never forget, i ran the full lap of the track with my Union Jack.

All of the above (except the Union Jack bit) , plus I ran a minute inside the time I had hoped for! A day I will remember for ever. Now I can't wait for the Olympics to start

It was a great run - Chariots of Fire was a nice (if slightly cheesy) touch which made me well up!
The atmosphere was great and I was very proud to be one of the lucky few.

Ran a bit quick in 42:20 which cut my last long pre VLM short the next day, but I know I've done the training and can do it so it was worth it. The course was pretty good too, although clearly lots of zig zags had been put in to make it up to 5 miles. There were a couple of hills which seemed to catch some people out too. Speaking of the distance, I'd heard the course was long. Anyone else hear that? My Nike+ was short, but it's not being at all reliable at the moment so I'm not trusting that.

I'll be wearing my t-shirt with pride!

a lot of garmins read 5+ miles, but with so many corners it was hard to run the exact line, + under the stadium meant that all GPS switched off, it was an official measured course, should have been right.
