National Lottery Olympic Park Run

Is this event real or a phishing attempt?

Maybe I'm being cynical.

I've been sent an e-mail with a link to register for an event next March.  All sounds plausible, but it's from a group called Great Activity - who are they?

If you follow the link it asks you for the usual sort of detail you'd put into a race entry.  But it also relates to a login for the National Lottery.  I've never registered with them and it doesn't feel right.

Has anyone else had this e-mail?

I am more annoyed that I had my ballot rejected, as did Sophie Raworth and Jesse Metcalfe.

Anyone get accepted?

My friend has heard she's not in but I still haven't heard.  Any idea when we will find out by?

They said all results by the 4th Nov. I got a place!

OOhh.. will have to check my e-mail HOURLY then

Totally bummed by my rejection letter for this. Is it bad that I'm assuming 4000 of the 5000 places were reserved for corporate sponsors who only want to spectate and not run at all? I'd happily give up my two spectator spots if I could just run it!!

I got in, really chuffed!

I'm in!!  Am new to running so will be great to have something to keep me motivated and to encourage me to improve my times.

Would have loved to have taken part.

If anyone has a place that they can no longer use please get in touch.

I'm in! Lucky me, I entered on deadline day.
31/10/2011 at 13:57
I'm in too. Can't remember when I entered but wasn't expecting to get in!  Now got to sort out the arguments as to who gets the 2nd spectator spot....
