Any recommendations on footwear? Was contemplating wearing speedcross' but fearing ground may be a tad firm....already have a stress fracture on left foot but fear the padded road shoes wont be grippy enough

Very much watch this space. I ran over box hill each week fir the last week.  I was in my rosd trainers and it's been fine. However rainsis forecast  down here all week.

Cheers....will do.  Travelling down straight from work (in Liverpool) Friday evening to crash at Mr Yaps.  Will probably just bring both and see on the day.  Could always pop the thicker orthotics in the speedcross and hope for the praying for rain mind.....cramped up to buggary last weekend

Im bringing both pairs,  will assess on the day.  Typical its baking hot now after weeks of lovely cool running weather

Aye...there were a fair few dnfs at freckleton half over the weekend and at least one ambulance called out through heat related collapse! Good facilities provided but just too damn hot. Will be my first trionium event and have been warned its a heavy slog

Weather forecast suggests it might rain, so that will take the heat out the air if it does. It is a heavy slog Shaun, but the medal at the end, the knowing of completing a really tough race is worth it. It is fun though, there is no race like it, and even though I was in agony last year, I am still coming back this year. It is worth it.

Sounds good. Have a few trail halves under belt this year but nothing near the hills on this I don't think. Already six toenails down on the marathon training so in for a penny methinks

Hey people

My brother has dropped out due to achillies injury, so got a place up for grabs (just checking with Rob first on info he needs).

Weather looks set fair for tomorrow. About 18 degrees, sunny intervals, chance of showers. I'll buy that.

My quads are already twitching anxiously.

He he he... good luck everyone!

21/06/2013 at 22:37

Gee thanks

22/06/2013 at 05:35

It's going to be a great day... mind how you go!

22/06/2013 at 06:14

Summers here

22/06/2013 at 07:38

Urgh - wet out there! Slippy too.

22/06/2013 at 08:25

What is the advice please from experienced runners out there? 

Normal gym shoes or old worn out road shoes? Or mudclaws (guessing not enough mud around for mudclaws)?


22/06/2013 at 08:51

Forecast is for it to be drying up during the race (no rain forecast for duration of the race), but it will be slippy. Normal trainers would suffice (studs and spikes are not needed). Mudclaws would be a bit OTT.... but up to you. Others may have different advice... (I'd do it in ordinary trainers).

In past years the weather was dry so the ground was firm to good although there can be some softer areas especially under the tree cover.

In between the steps there is a fair amount of running to be had along the trails.

I think this year I'll bring the Adidas Kanadias (cheap off-road shoe good for firm trails).

Thank you, gentlemen.

I am an inexperienced runner, so do not have trail / fell shoes, yet. Normal trainers it is!

Looking forward to this afternoon. Thanks again.

Good luck to everyone.  It's a FABULOUS race.  Gutted not to be there...

22/06/2013 at 21:23

Cheers HappyChap - good luck with the Polesden Lacey 10k tomorrow!


Well done to all participants and huge thanks to all the marshals. Results, photos and video will be up by Monday morning latest.
