Foot Care : Day one Gortex Boots and Gaiters so dry feet.
Day 2 on very deep water and bogs : Army Surplus Gortex Socks with Marino blend socks underneath. The AS socks were brilliant. They cost £ 9.50 .look as ugly and misshapen as hell but are built to keep a soldiers feet dry when carrying a 40 Kg pack through hours of bogs.Mine were previously owned by : SMITH 232.
I ran unsupported which makes the race a whole lot harder.
GPS was used as a back up to the Map and compass. The most difficult nav was in the farmland areas as a small mistake could lead you into a dead end field boundry.
