I believe that if the organisers have organised this race for the last 6 years then they are in a position to assess the course and we will be informed in the briefing of any changes or places to take extra care..........
everyone who enters this type of race should be prepared and carry the necessary safety stuff incase of an incident.these can happen in any weather.........
not sure about people who have no choice very few have to leave home really...there are no severe weather warning for the area.....and not much flooding in this area.
the rugby game is cardiff is still going ahead with 70,000 people travelling there unnecessarily.........
the emergency services and foresry comission both know the race is taking place and so no doubt would have their say if there was any genuine worries
Well taht was brillliant race..........glad we recceed as it made it so much easier on the night.a few people overtook us a few times so i presume they kept taking detours........
couldn't believe how the conditions had changed in a week since the last recce...so much mud and water........amaxing
thanks to the organisers.......and of course the marshalls..i will be back..........
great to meet RS and few others ........had my bath now ready for bed
another race tonight with excellent marshalls.......only a few at checkpoints but they were out on the beacons in the rain and wind in the dark so that we could run around like idiots.......really grateful to them
SF..............ddi you take a wrong turn after the last checkpoint....................sems like quite a few took a hard way back to the start
Well that was fun, likewise good to meet you Seren, see you at xmas pudding run.
First lady last night, so big congrates to Seren and also to SF well done both of you,
I won nothing!!!
Never have, never will , for me it's just the fun of it, thanks anyway.
It was me first lady..i was amazed..i think its because we took the easiest path home
another brlliant race. stunningly tough - I wasn't prepared enough and got pretty cold and slow but put on the spare jumper and staggered on. Navigation over the moor was interesting - the tape always seemed to appear just after I was beginning to think I'd gone wrong which was a bit teasing .
You have to judge for yourself if you can manage the risks of doing this sort of thing. The organisers have always seemed very explicit to me that I'm responsible for getting back safely, whatever I come across. It's certainly safer than doing it on your own. If you don't think you can do that then it is unfair to depend on others to get you out of it. But if we didn't take any risks we'd die young at home in bed.
I'm glad it went off OK and my fears weren't realised. Still thought it was best to pull out when I picked up a bug a couple of weeks ago. Did a local fell race today and managed to trip over in broad daylight so I don't think night running is for me.
Seren, I heard the first lady ran a very good time, well done you.
Could I point out to all, that those children I turn up with each year aren't all mine! ( 4are)
Good race, was that you Seren on the moorland crossing where my Garmin Edge GPS came in handy for the second year running? Quite disorientating in the misty darkness
Path was easy to follow from there onwards, but some very deep puddles and still the Brinore Tramroad [read Brinore Stream] on the way back down. Easy option it may be but it didn't feel like it...
Well done to all who took part. We must be mad

I headed up the hill as well at that post but it was laziness on my part. The map clearly showed that it was a left turn - thanks to the guys who pointed me in the right (ie left haha) direction.
Can you post a higher resolution jpg or some text if you can? it's hard to read thenames/ times when you zoom in?
this is a little better I hope. Text added to previous post.
Huge thanks to Duncan and the marshals for a great race. Much wetter, windier, colder, darker than last year, so as I hadn't put as many training miles in before the race, it was much tougher. Very happy to finish but just as happy to have competed. Seems that everyone who did the race feels the same. Shame that some even on the morning of the race chose to criticise the organisers and competitors for getting out there and grabbing a bit of life - I guess 'those that can, do; those that can't, criticise'. Well done again to Duncan and the team for making it all possible.
I'll second that John.
Sleepwalker is a tough, uncompromising event where the terrain and weather are the biggest factors. Duncan and the rest of the organisers do a fantastic job and host one of the most unique runs in the calendar.
I also like the fact that all the competitors are happy enough to have a chat on the way round. It's a friendly, low key event that is tougher that some full distance 26.2 s out there by some way

nly 10 mins seperating the top 7 men.that was close.mind at the tail end the women were close as well..........
I honestly didn't feel frightened or out of my depth at anytime due to the course or weather....I actually enjoyed the whole thing.i live in wales.if you don't run when its raining you would hardly ever run

Jayc.............no not me........we managed the whole route from memory and so was fine luckily
Big thanks to all the marshalls, the cup of tea at the turn around was the best cup ever.
Last Saturday in Nov 2013 anyone?
