DK, is that last bit trail shoes terrain or would road shoes do the job? I'm not planning on bringing a selection in the backpack and was thinking that trail shoes that go well on the road would be cover all bases. If road shoes are likely to be okay, I might just stick with them.
Okay, I'm late in on the thread but I'm in on this one too. Coming from a rock in the middle of the Irish Sea, any race in the UK is blimmin' expensive (£300 just for the ferry) so I'll not get sidetracked into talking about money.
How's training going folks?
I have a top tip following this weekend's long run: if you sneak out at night (because you can't sleep) make sure the note you write, in the event that your wife wakes up and wonders where you are, has more detail than "gone for a run". She wasn't supposed to wake up, but did, and was on the verge of notifying the emergency services when I waddled back in at 4am. My bad!!
Good run though - 24 miles off road in the dark whilst tired
