I'm considering doing the 30/40 mile ultra in lieu of Cardiff 50.

Does anyone know whether the terrain will be suitable for road running shoes/road runner? Or is it possible it might be muddy e.t.c?

You would probably be better posting this in the ultra/adventure racing section. I believe quite a few on there have done the race before.

I did the 30 last year directions were poor and I didn't think much of marshalling. I told marshalls that a group behind me had gone off track, and were lost, no interest. I eventually finished after several detours (missing markers blamed on walkers) I ran 8 miles extra. If you want to navigate it should be OK if you're looking for a run probably not

Any thoughts on road vs. trail shoes though EKGO?

It was dry and easy in road shoes, I'd imagine it would need to be very bad for trail shoes

Righto. Thanks. Will hopefully get up for a look and a couple of test runs before the day.
