    Definitely trail shoes. Very hard underfoot.

    If it's very hard and dry, might road shoes be better?

    There are a couple of sections, the descent of Roseberry Topping, and both the initial ascent and final descent through the woods, that might give problems with road shoes.

    I agree with (I've forgotten who!) above that there are enough rough bits that road shoes would be a risk - there are some quite rutted bits where it would be easy to turn an ankle. Definitely trail shoes.

    Yes anything with abit of padding would be to the good, but there are a few tricky sections which might turn an ankle or two so no high heels.
    Ankles and feet were sore after the recce. The descents of little roseberry and roseberry are softish being fern mulch.

    Is enjoying the running
