Many thanks to the organisers and marshals. Really enjoyed the race.
I haven't done the course before but I enjoyed the final 2 miles.
Anybody have a link to the results yet ?
Tx for all the suggestions.I was very tempted by the Inov-8 Trailrocs but felt they were just a bit too similar to my current New Balance 'waffles'
In the end I opted for Merrell Mix Masters. Looks like this weekend's snow might be an ideal tiem to test them out
I'm reluctant to throw my favourite trainers away (or even give them to charity) so I have : 2 x road trainers that have done over a 1000 miles but are fine for mixed terrain muddy training runsThen4 x more regular road trainers (including a pair I bought two years ago and still haven't started using yet)
2 x racers
1 x 'waffles'
1 x 'conversions' - old road trainers now with an off-road sole
1 x athletic spikes
1 x cross country spikes
So that's 12 pairs in total
Thanks for more suggestions.
HRHB (great name BTW ) thanks for pointing out about the rubber compound. Sounds like I need to visit an actual running shop and feel the grip before committing myself.Or pester runners I meet to have a look at their soles (not souls !) ........
Thanks for those suggestions.
All look good options. And those TrailRocs are super light - 245g !
