7737 vs 6770 right now.
And we're exactly 1,000 in the lead! 7,797 vs 6,797!
This really is a phenomenal level of voting. I'd never have believed we could get so many! I've never seen numbers anything like this.
Ten past midnight in Norway now and my bedtime in the UK. Off I go!
I hope someone will keep an eye on the board and on Steinar's Facebook page to see what happens at the end!
Here's his page:
Steinar J. Olsen covered over 210 km and finally arrived in Risør just after midnight. Yay!
Then Steinar J. Olsen covered over 210 km and finally arrived in goal https://twitter.com/stormberg/status/340957456589004800/photo/1, just after midnight.

Didn't quite get to bed but I can go now happy!
7,849 to 6,851 in the end. Just incredible.
Thanks to everyone who voted, told their friends and family, emailed organisations, and kept on doing it! Big victory for us in an important cause.
Time to get the balloons out!
Phenomenal! It just shows that we can and do win big sums of money for ME research when we vote in these competitions as a united community. With that in mind, dont forget to vote in the other competiton that is in progress at the moment, if you havent done so already!
So pleased. Brilliant achievement
YAY!!!!!! Nice work, everyone!!!! Let's keep this up and get the MEandYou study funded!!!
Glad you were awake to see the victory!!!
Wow, that really was a blinding surge!
If only we knew where it came from! Do we have any time correlation data on the start of the surge and the various emails that went out? Was Tom's the first email that went out to Co-Cure on this? Did we send out a signal that went a bit viral somehow? I know I panicked when I heard the lead was down to 60, and put up the forum notice and emailed my own mailing list; I guess maybe a bunch of us pulled out our last few cards at that point, and the combination of the tight timeframe, the close contest, the significant sum of money and the obvious worthiness of the cause probably helped create a perfect storm. But 1,000 new votes - new one-time voters at the last minute - that's just incredible! Whatever it was, we want to bottle that if we can.
The Norwegian ME Association posted about the contest towards the end on their Facebook page:
But there must have other people/societies posting and maybe sending newsletters too. Would be interesting to know
Thanks. Wrote to 18 lists on Saturday evening. These are non-Facebook groups so one doesn't get flagged for spamming if one posts a lot together.
I also posted to quite a few Facebook groups as well but I got warned recently on that for something else so have to space those out more.
There was a huge rush on Saturday so obviously was a team effort.
