Ian, I havent done the PTL or TDG, but i generally sleep 'on the hoof', so to speak, during very long ultras of 100 miles or more.. Basically, when you get to a relatively flat section of Trail, simply close your eyes and run. Reduce your pace by approximately 35%, and be sure to set your alarm on your watch for a sleep period of no more than 30-40 mins at a time. Do this once every 2 hours when you are tired. It has always worked for me.
