  • I'm in !!!! image

    Just checked my email after reading the posts above.... absolutely over the moon and shocked !!! Makes up a little bit for not getting into VLM12...

  • Congratulations Ali!! I didn't get in - boo hoo
  • Grump, grump, grump.  I wonder if there are any charity places...

  • I'm not in either image oh well I can always go and look at the outside of the olympic stadium!
  • I got in too. As I just had cartilage surgery on my knee yesterday, my London Marathon place will have to go back in the pot, but this will make a more realistic target. And if it's slow, all the better - my last cartilage damage came from trying too hard to soon into an injury recovery programme.
  • Wow, well done to those who got in - I didn't.  Oh well. image
  • I didn't get in either, nor did my wife. Good luck to those who did get in, sure you will enjoy it.
  • I'm IN!!!

     Can't believe it if I'm honest. Look at the amount of people on this thread alone that have applied so just think how many who don't come on here have applied as well.

    Like people have said, if it isn't for you fair enough. But to get the chance to run inside the Olympic Stadium (in the Olympic year) is massive.

  • I haven't had an email either way yet...........
  • Still waiting for mine too. I'm starting to think this is punishment for not answering the cheesy "what would this mean to you" questions.
  • I've not succeeded in any ballot for any race, and this was no exception.

    I deserve a medal for perseverance.
  • Yes, you had to suck up to them to get in. I put 'It would be the greatest moment of my life. It would allow me to put behind me the years living on the streets of Central London as crack addict while working as a male prostitute and part time getaway driver. And it'd make my mum proud of me, at last.' I think it was something like that. But my memory's not so good these days.
  • I was successful image i'm so happy after losing out on the 2012 VLM.

    My son just asked.....won't the stadium be just like gateshead stadium and after the day you can just pay £2 ands runa round the trackon a session

  • Congrats to those who got in - I decided to enter on impulse last night, then got the email today to say I didn't get in image

    Damn that cheesy question that I didn't answer...... image

  • Another rejection...... getting so used to these now. Anyone not want to run let me know.
  • No email for me either!

    Ah.  I believe my answers were ''.'' and ''.'' respectively.

    Fiddlesticks.

  • Got my email - unsuccessful image
  • I didn't get in, but my daughter did so think I'll be going along to watch ! image
  • I got in, but my OH doesn't know yet.  Thought it was a scam when it arrived, as I wasn't expecting to hear until November.  Anyway, I am looking forward to it, bottleneck or not..

    I did write a load of rubbish about it having a special big 0 birthday in March 2012...but I assumed that it was a genuine "out of the hat" ballot?

  • I got in and I left the cheesy question blank.
  • I am in and will really enjoy taking a look at the Olympic Park - I won't be there during the Olympics.  But as many people it wouldn't be disappointing (edit - If I hadn't got in).  Just have to decide whether to run Reading Half on the 1t April now.

    Sorry to hear about all of you who didn't get in.

    I expect the question is just so they can pick something out for the media.  Philpub clever use of the '.'   Not that it helped you any.

  • I've heard nothing yet image
  • I just want to be able to get at my money now I've been unsuccessful.  I use a pre-paid card for all things online and the way it works with things like this, and preordering things, is they 'reserve' the amount on the card - it's called a 'balance adjustment' or something.  And it can take up to 30 bloody days for it to be returned for use!  I've also been overspending a bit this year so simply loading more money on isn't an option - the card has a limit for each year.  Sounds a pain, but the disadvantages are outweighed by the advantages - complete peace of mind when making online transactions for one. image
  • My bf and I were both unsuccessful.

     But on the plus side we did get some tickets to the Paralympics athletics events

  • I got in image

    I'm still waiting for an email to find out whether my son has, I'm glad he's not the only one who hasn't heard I was starting to panic that I entered his email address wrong!
  • I'm not in. 

    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.

  • Any idea why some of us havent heard yet? Both my partner and I havent heard yet ...........
