#533 for me this year. Picked it up an hour ago after a decent trip down ( gorgeous weather, hard to believe it'll be totally different tomorrow!). Have to say missing the course map off the back of the t-shirt and hoodie this year! Always found it was a bit of a talking point. Plus they've omitted the year now from the hoodie so it's just a generic design. Seems better quality but prefer the old design! Lady selling them said people seem to be 50/50 whether they like it or not. Still can't shake my runny nose but (fingers crossed) its not getting any worse. See you in the morning. If anyone spots me at the start, come and say hi!

I will be standing on the start line as always special vest with no number on it.

If you spot me please say hello because chatting on forums like this to people you have no idea what they look like is funny,

Have an enjoyable race

After the last 2 days up here I'm gutted the weather is suppose to be so bad tomorra but hey Ho skin is waterproof I suppose! The few extra pounds I have gained the last few weeks will help me keep warm! Gonna be a long tough day out there I think, as long as we come away with the slate sure we will be happy! All the best everyone, hope you achieve your targets

No - 1083 Bideford AAC vest or tshirt say hi if you see me!!

Weather awful, but not a bad day- apart from falling twice on the mud and hurting my arm!! Got another GFA and finished in 3:13.29

Weather was VILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Off for food now!

Think Rou must have finished in the prizes- she passed me early on and didn't see her again!

Well done Gobi- cracking time in the conditions. Hope to catch up with you this evening

finished safely (just about) in 3:14 went off easy for the fourteen miles or so and then cranked it up passed loads from beddgelert and even a few heading up waunfawr, done the usual and ended up on my backside coming down the hill. treacherous conditions for a normal running shoe but nothing hurt. took a bit of my confidence and maybe cost me a bit of time as i took it a lot easier. first snowdon and it isn't as bad as everyone makes up. i felt better in this one than all my previous nine marathons forst and foremost as i paced it to perfection with a lot of help from arwel lewis. biggest lesson i have ever learnt running wise go off easy you will make up the time further on in the race. i will definitely be doing this one again maybe not next year as i am chasing a sub 3 and might try abingdon. well done to all finishers have a god drink and a good rest

Jason - where are people this evening ?

After breaking down just after leaving home this morning, leaving the garmin in my car and having an awful interview with S4C (safe to say they won't be showing it!) I was very pleased with the run - just under 2h55m I think. I felt in good nick before the race, but didn't expect that. Great to finish just behind stonemonkey who like me has failed to go sub 3 at Snowdonia in the last 5 years

Llongyfarchiadau/congratulations again Rou - really pleased for you (although I couldn't help laugh at watching you reaction to that piece of sports bar which you got afte the race!!)

JB- well done

Gobi- Padarn Lake Hotel- lounge bar around 7 I think

29/10/2011 at 17:07
Jb - nice running. very nice indeed.
29/10/2011 at 18:21
Well done John Bach, absolutely over the moon for mate.
29/10/2011 at 18:21

*for you mate*

What a fantastic day! (and yes I am glad I wore my vest&shorts!)

Got my sub 4 (3:53:13) despite falling on the descent-possibly would have been bit quicker if I wasn't being cautious after that even if mix of blood,mud,sheep poo&rain is a good look,but almost worth it to be patched up by v nice Dr after! ;-D think I'm gonna ache tomorrow!

Well done all,some fab times done by all

Good to meet some of you even if it was only briefly,definitely a small world TR39-and top marks to Mrs TR39 for recognising me before the start!

Enjoy the party tonight guys!

Bring on SNOD 2012
