Ive got in and have been on the other thread! @Keyser Suze if you dont want your spectator places can  I buy one? My daughter needs a carer with her which would mean I cant bring my son! I have emailed Customer Services and they say I cant get another ticket! Sure this is going to be a pain for everyone!!

Really wish that places had been kept back for charities or London running clubs.

I'm not sure why they're being so stingy with the spectator tickets anyway. The stadium must take a lot more than 10,000 people. I'm ok because I've only got one child, so the tickets go to my husband and son, but I'm not sure what we would have done had we had two children.

Article on news the other day re security at the Olympic Park and the cost of it etc.  I guess they may be looking a this as a test event in terms of getting large numbers through security.  They'll have 15,000 people to get through security this way which I guess is a big enough test.

 I haven't heard of any other events in the stadium pre-olympics.

Would be really amazing though if the stadium was full!

Hellywobs - the capacity is meant to be 80,000

I'm in - really chuffed as only started running this year and it was my first ballot. Hope my luck continues - see you in March

Anyone not using their place?

Will give generously to charity in exchange for 2 places.

Just seen this - have you had a reply from Customer services or another solution?

Thanks

Anyone got tickets to spare???

Would be very interested in spare tickets for spectators. If anyone is not using any of theirs, I will happily pay some money for them or donate to a charity instead etc. Thanks in advance!

Are there any more places to be had?

Exactly.  I was lucky enough to get tickets for the Word Cup cycling at the Olympic velodrome (capacity 6,000) a few weeks ago and it was clear that the "test event" nature of the occasion extended to the security operation - literally airport-like in its detail, with bag searches, restrictions on how much drink you could bring in, etc.  I would guess that the security operation for increasing the number of spectators at such a minor event as this (with respect!) would probably cost more than staging the race itself.

As would I - need one extra - have 2 kids and a missus - kids are 3 and 12 so can't leave one of them outside while the other goes in with Mum!

Thanks!

Good luck to everyone running and spectating, not looking forward to the 2 hours they say it takes to get in!

I was in Saturdays event, and only have good words to say about it.
From starting to line up, to getting into the Olympic Park was no more than 40 minutes, there was certainly no bottlenecks in getting in the stadium due to different starting waves and everyone seemed to have a great time.
