The results of the first-ever Broad Street Run lottery are set to be posted on the race’s website tomorrow morning. However, you may receive an email today indicating that you’ve been selected.
I just received an email from email@example.com—the sender appeared as MarathonGuide.com Registrations—that contained my receipt for the Broad Street Run registration fee. As you remember from entering the lottery, you had to include information for a credit card number that would only be charged if you were accepted into the race. So … I’m taking this as a good sign.
Keep your eyes peeled today for a similar email. The subject line is this semi-confusing jumble: MARATHONGUIDE COM / Web Marketing Associates Customer Receipt/Purchase Confirmation.
According to race organizers, the final results—which will be a list of everyone who entered and whether they were accepted or not—will be posted on the race website tomorrow, Tuesday the 19th, by 10 a.m.
UPDATE: Ah, silly me. I just checked my spam folder and found an email from the race itself congratulating me on being accepted. The sender for that one is firstname.lastname@example.org, and the subject line is a self-explanatory “Blue Cross Broad Street Run Lottery Acceptance.” So you may want to peruse those spam emails if you’re unsure.
