The Great Runner's Word Controversy

Trail Shoes

Posted: 08/03/2014 at 21:04

I have a pair of inov-8 315s for mud and Brooks Cascadia 8 for dry firm trails as they have more cushioning. 

the idea of Neutral/Stability shoes etc seems to be going out of favour and is rare in trail shoes anyway because you are constantly shifting and rolling a little. Just go for a pair that are comfortable and have the kind of grip you need.

if you are getting advice in a running shop check they are trail runners themselves. I have heard all kinds of crap from people in what are suppose to be reputable running store. And stay out of Sports Direct at all costs!

if you enjoy going to events then go but be prepared to run it rather than race it and just focus on enjoying he atmosphere. If the reason you signed up was to race it then I would maybe rethink.

Way up from Jevington is nice and dry and firm now. Just back from a 29 mile run that way. Had a look at the way down into Eastbourne after getting lost up there last year. My advice is...

head right to the top of the hill until the trig point is on your left and a five bar gate is on yOur right. Turn left keeping the trig point to your left and go in a straight line. Look for a gully going down and to the right.

hopefuly this year visibility will be a little better this year!

Hope the news is good Debra I found that once I could start running again I could build up the miles pretty quickly. Was afraid that after 6 months I would be starting from scratch again. Have a feeling I will be racing the cut offs on this one though.

Looks like I'll be running it again this year. Been touch and go. I have barely run since August after falling backwards down the stairs and over on both ankles but I managed a 30 miler and a hilly 23 today so I figure it is worth a shot. Loved it last year despite the gales and icy driving rain - how much more fun could it be this year

Suits me - I don't do competitive. I live in Seaford and it sounds like the route is likely to be over my favourite trails

I'll play it by ear. My wife ran it last year and did 10 laps (we were going to run as a mixed pair and aim for 10 each but I got in a car accident so she went solo). I think she would like to top that this year and I will cling on for dear life to keep up
