Two potential problems with Hokas: They are wide and can twist your feet on frozen churned up mud. Secondly how well do they grip on ice?
Somehow I doubt we will get the same conditions as in 2014 where soft bog was good for Hokas.
Anyone just reading the 2014 blogs will have got only one version of the race. Compared with 2013 ,2014 was tropical ! It never got cold or really windy
. To some extent you need to save your final Kit choices until the last moment. I suspect that some of the 2014 Challanger finishers could be in for a shock if we get snow and ice like the first two years.
If you do go for Hokas then put a pair of conventional shoes in your drop bag.
