Has anyone got any recommendations for cushioned long trail shoes? I like to run long and off-road.
I need something with decent grip for the inevitable muddy sections, but cushioning suitable for a 45 mile race. I've tried a few different styles in the past but am keen to hear other peoples' recommendations in the hope of uncovering a new gem!
I ran this last year. The navigation is quite simple; as stated above simply stay on the ridge fir most of it but you will need to get your map out for the sections on the country lanes and through the woods. They out a gpx file on the website before the race so you can download it to a gpx watch or hire one of their gps devices with it pre-loaded.
I took the "raw" option which was £10-15 less and I didn't get to use the food at the feed stations (But you can fill water bottles).
The he course is beautiful and everyone as really friendly. Highly recommend.
