what to wear for Beachy Head
As a regular road runner, I am about to face my first off road marathon in October (Beachy Head)
I currently run in Asics 2150, yet need to also start to train running off road and am not sure of which trail shoes to go for
All advice welcome
I haven't done beachy head yet but will this year.......
i run in Asics 1150's and my son runs in asics 2150's and we both run in the asics trabuco trail shoes.......they are really comfortable and I have done loads of off road runs in them since i had them in december last year
Thanks Seren nos
good luck with beachy head
Hi seren nos,
Are your trabucos the same size as your 2150s or did you have to go up a size?
I've had them in the past, and even 1/2 a size bigger was a bit snug.
My trabucos are actually 1/2 a size smaller than my running shoes...........they are both ladies style............I wear my running ones a full size or 2 bigger than my normal shoes..............I say 1 or 2 because I can'tt remember the last time I bought a pair of shoes that wasn't for running in............. and my feet might have changed.......to clarify. I have usually been a 7 or occassionally 8 in normal shoes...but always run in ladies 9 .( which are bigger than the mens 8 1/2 for some reason)........but in the trabucos I run in 8 1/2's...........I probably don't want these to be loose or I would lose them in the mud.
wemustbemad.............have those got any support for overpronation............I know the trabucos have and as some of the times the trails are hard or I have to run on roads to get to the mountains then I have found the trabuco's great in avoiding injuries on these surfaces.....
I stuck with same size and they are fine.
Hi Seren Nos - I have orthotics - see attached link which hopefully is some help to you
wemustbemad.........do you find them ok..........I take it you wear you orthotics in both........just wondering as the 2150's are for those who overpronate a lot........whilst the ones you linked to seem to be for those who are neutral or under pronate...........
As long as you find they are comfortable and not giving you any problems........then I all is well.
sprint for the line.My OH has those adidas ones and finds them good......he's a neutral runner.... pity my son didn't take after him instead of me
