Fun run website apologise for website crash

Due to technical difficulties with the website caused by exceptionally high demand, we temporarily stopped taking entries for the National Lottery Anniversary Run this morning and apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.

The public are clearly excited about the opportunity to be one of the first to run into the Stadium since the London 2012 Games ended. We are working hard to get the site up and running and will continue to keep the public up to date.
