have just seen new balance MT110 which looked and felt pretty good and only 35 quid in sports direct. might buy them anyway at that price!
Roland, I generally like to do reccie runs but unfortunately I live up north and it is too far to go to check it out. although I have a friend who has run it and lives down there. doesn't sound like it is going to be muddy and boggy like the fells so I think WiB is right the course should need too agressive grips
It is the sussex coastal trail which is 6000ft climb over 33 miles, so will be hilly but I imagine the ground will be pretty firm down there. As I am from up in the pennines I am used to bog hopping. Was also thinking of brooks pure grit as I road run in Brooks pure cadence. but I cant believe the grip is as good as they suggest it is
