We had 535 gnomes total online this year, with around 480 average online at any given time, and a total of 800ish gnomes in the guild. (We don't kick out gnomes from previous years, I actually promote each year's gnomes to a new rank, giving them a new rank so you can see how long people have been participating!)
We had a pile of alliance escorts, including the lovely Otenshi and Penseroso from Forge Camp Sunshine (Forge Camp Sunshine also won our guild contest, and got 20,000 gold and a Ruby Panther!), as well as people from SeeD, an many people from the Horde, including Malice, and another horde guild who's name I did not catch. But apparently, according to their guild member's email, there were around 70 of them planning to attend and each time they were killed by Alliance guards while killing off mobs that would attack the gnomes, the amount that they had pledged to donate doubled!
A huge, huge thank you to the people of the reddit community especially Penseroso who was kind enough to share the gnome blog repeatedly for me over there, and make his whole guild wear pink tabards for a month! As well as NCRzombie who posted a 183 image gallery from the run, many of the pictures are featured in our slideshow below! you guys upvoted, and shared, and didn't punt gnomes, and spread the word and were awesome.
Also, thanks to Penseroso of Scarlet Crusade for making his yearly video!
Thanks to the folks over on tumblr, facebook, and twitter for reblogging, retweeting, sharing and telling your friends! Especially the folks who liked the Running of the Gnomes facebook page, shared it with their friends, shared pictures (which we reposted here!) and were in general amazing!!

A big thanks to the people on the forums! To people in Scarlet Crusade's forums for putting up with us every year! (We love you!) And to our friendly CRZ buddies for being so excited and welcoming. But most of all, to everyone who bumped our general chat thread, who shared them with their friends, especially people like Moused, Huggywuggles, and Jadesigh. Extra big props to Huggywuggles who not only bumped our thread, but made our teaser video, and made another video as well that featured his experience of the run!
Femtaur did a really great blog post! You can find their great blog here!
(They also took my favorite Stormwind city gate screenshot!)
Also if you peek in their blog post you can see the Sha of Happiness in their screenshots. Much giggling was had when they got invited to the guild between a guildie and I!
Allie O'Neil of the Examiner posted an article on examiner.com highlighting the event! You can find her article here!

If you have a video, a post, or something else and I've missed it, shoot me a message, and I'd love to include it here, otherwise, thank you all for being so amazing, and see you next year! <3
PS: Want to Know how our After Party Went?
A whole bunch of us headed over to go say hi to Garrosh, or as I called him "Hogger", and a few of us even managed to give him a /lick!
