Running at the Olympic stadium

For those that were gutted they didn't get place in the national lottery anniversary run.... Around the Olympic park and finishing in the stadium there is another chance. Ballet has opened today....go to to enter. Would have posted a link but technically challenged on the iPad lol

Fingers crossed for a place! :)

  • Thank you. I have entered the ballot. Fingers crossed!

  • So glad we get another chance to apply. Was gutted when missed out originally

  • I've only gone and applied! It'd be amazing to get a place.

  • Thanks Ali! Have just entered; fingers crossed!!

    I was lucky enough to get tickets for the anniversary games at the stadium the weekend after so that would be a double whammy!! :)


  • Ah, lucky you Sue! I tried but I couldn't get onto the site and by the time it was back up, they'd sold out!!

  • Well, this is the first I've heard about this, so thank you AliB1!! I was one of the lucky ones who managed to grab an Olympic athletics ticket in the 'daily sales' last year and it was one of the most wonderful days I've ever had, an ambition realised, and to be able to run around the Stadium would be magical.

    So, I've entered too - you never know, we might get a couple of us through and we could form our own team!! :-)

  • I've entered too! Fingers crossed.

  • I've entered the ballot too, even though I will be in the middle of a run of 12 hour night shifts!

    I couldn't get tickets for the Olympics as I was working in the Police control room and knew I would be on 12 hour shifts for the whole event - it was so frustrating! But I did get to go to the stadium and wander around for a couple of hours one day between the Olympics and Paralympics (but weren't allowed inside any of the arenas or stadium!)

    It did seem really strange to go past on the train every day after seeing it being built and seeing no-one in there, to suddenly having it full of public and seeing athletes using the training field... It was a fantastic event and I am glad I got to be a small part of making it happen! So to go from being a tv spectator to potential participant, wow! :-)

  • How much does it cost? I can't see any figures on the website and don't want to register with the website if there is no point entering the ballot.

  • Ifbi remember right think its 27.50 so not cheap. When u click on the enter link th details come up

  • Having doubts about being able to do this now...they're talking about a 10am start and the first train from Gloucester is 9:10! That either means driving up very early and trying to find somewhere to park, or an overnight stay, possibly £50 or more....on top of the £27.50 entry fee.

    Plus I've realised I'm supposed to be attending a major choir rehearsal that day...ooops! Will have to have a think.....................
