spikes no, studs could be useful. a pair of caterpillar tracks off a tank would be even better !! Hope december isn't too clement for this run, I rather enjoyed breaking the ice before I plunged knee, hip, waist deep last time.

JFB, this year spikes certainly wouldn't have been needed. Apart from the puddles, which are far too deep to need spikes, the rest was fairly hard dirt. Off-road trainers were perfect.

I was told by the salesman in Runner's Need that spikes weren't allowed in Grim, but I don't know where he got that from.

JFB, yes, it is!

Shortly before being pulled out of a puddle by Angelis because I was in over my waist and sinking fast...

Did you say 'puddle'? Some puddle!

It does sound like it's going to be fun.

So - do I use this an excuse go and buy a new pair of off-road shoes for this event or do I wear the tattiest pair that I own and am likley to throw away anyway?

I didn't get any good photos last year :(

Suppose I'll have to do it again!

I'd go for off roaders - I use this race to give mine their annual wash!

Tattiest ones I would say, much easier than cleaning em after.

If you can get hold of a pair of fell shoes, I tend to think the grip is better than a normal off roader.

Definitely in my plans, as well as the knacker cracker. Shall we see if we can do a clean sweep of the prizes?
