I reckon that answering the question with "Well, it will inspire me to stop giving crack to my  getaway driver in exchange for blow jobs and to take up running instead" might have gone against me.

I entered but unfortunately got an "unsuccessful" email yesterday, pretty gutted as I think it would be a good atmosphere and as others have said a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I've got the unsuccessful email too

I have still not had an email of either variety

I entered to give them some paperwork. Bit like VLM really. No idea what the result is. If someone takes the money, I'll check the spam folder.

I got in! Yay. I answered the 'What will this mean to you?' question but no idea if it made a difference - ballot closed at midnight on the 27th, I think, and I got the successful e-mail by noon on the 28th.

Only issue I have now is who to give/sell the tickets to...

Both my partner (who is a bit of a non runner) and I entered.  I was hoping one of us would get accepted however have been over the moon to find us both accepted.

And yet again I STILL have not heard - I'm beginning to think I imagined entering the ballot now ........ I've e-mailed Camelot to find out ...... fingers crossed.

had £15 cash taken from my bank account but no email  - anyone else had this?  (and yes I have checked junk box)

I'm still waiting to hear from them as to whether hubby has a place or not - I've constantly checked the spam folder but nothing to say he is in or not in!

Gjranit - I know of someone who had the dosh taken and then a couple days later got the email to say they had a place - so fingers crossed for you

I also haven't received the email yet! My other half didn't get in though and got his rejection email on the 28th, i'm hoping that is a good sign for me!

Still not heard anything, but no payment has gone out so I guess I'm not in. Pity, was hoping to have a crack at breaking 30 minutes for the first time.

I got in buy my uncle didnt so he's pretty annoyed with me lol

has anyone else had the £15 taken but no email at all?

The confirmation email is sent by Nova International who do the Great Runs.  No contact number is listed but if you want to chase it up you could email info@greatrun.org which is listed at the bottom of the email. 

Otherwise, have you checked the junk/spam folder by logging into your email via your suppliers website as it could be in there?

Failing that assume you're in and be very disappointed if the pack fails to arrive next March.
