I too am looking at my first Ultra. I have previously run marathons one of which being the Neolithic Marathon.
I am looking at The Ox (white star running) which is 35 miles and seems to fall on the May bank holiday and I can second The Salisbury 54321 I have done the 30k and aside from the lack of signage around the last bit in the city centre its a good set-up.
I have looked for a similar thread on this subject but can't see it so hoping you could help me out?
I have been using the AdiStar Ride 4 and before that the AdiStar Ride 3 but Adidas have discontinued the line and have superceded them with the Boosts. I am not very keen on the Boosts (really, really narrow) and am wondering if anyone has found a decent replacement?
I like the fact that the Ride's were quite narrow and neutral with a slight cushioning. Alot of the shoes I have found are like running in slippers and I'm a bit out of ideas as there are only so many shoes I can try on.
