Don,t get over hung up on kit. No matter what you read on "essential Spine Kit " its only as good as your ability to use it.

 Re the boots V trainers+waterproof sox thing.  It comes down to comfort and grip. 

 My Salomon Sky boots kept my feet dry this year but for some reason the left boot bruised my foot so I abandoned them after day one. 

 Think of kit choice in the same way as you think of layering. Don,t put all your eggs in one basket. In many ways one of the main kit problems is the limit of 20Kg for your drop bag. You will need different kit combinations for each phase of the race.

Post Spine short recovery run?

One way or another I should be there even if as race support driver.

Liked the look of that but the price and restrictions put me off, £120 entry fee plus another 25 for compulsory gps, you must have someone available to drive you from the event HQ at the end.

Hi all. I have now tried some sealskinz socks and confirm they are damp proof, improvement on normal but still had wet feet.

Does anyone know if the omm 1 bag is suitable for this run (would use a liner and bivvy bag with it anyway).

Pretty sure the answer is no. It's not got an official rating and I think it's been asked and answered as no on the facebook group.
