Re: Road running shoes for fel
You could technically run anything in whatever shoes it's just that it might be a lot harder work than it needs to be. All depends in the route and terrain, and I have no idea what its like. If its anything like Darwen tower you'd be ok, other than that you'll probably be on your arse a lot and coming back down could be quite an intense experience. Though for the sake of a first short race, and no previous experience of fell running I wouldn't bother buying any new shoes. Give it a go, If you like it and you probably will then buy a proper pair of shoes be it Walsh or Inov-8 depending on which fits your feet the best.
Take a look at:
www.peteblandsports.co.uk - The best shop in the country
or www.sportsshoes.com which can have some good bargins, even cheaper instore.
Hope this helps, and enjoy.
P.S On your way back down just remember the mantra - Brain off, brakes off!
