    Thanks for the reply

    I have spent too long down here and lost all my ability to spot Northern wit!

    Comon sense doesn't enter in to it....we have entered to run 32 miles after all!

    so you can imagine how bad he is on the fell, especially at night and he is faster and fitter than us both overall.

    you doing the hobble pengy. Tom is chickening out.

    Straight answer based on doing it before - trail shoes

    I will be wearing NB cushioned trail shoes, not quite as padded as road shoes but much more cushioned than conventional trail or fell shoes and with a good amount of raised grip. This is because though there are few muddy patches at times some grip is required. Also most of the tracks are stony and my pure road shoes are too built up and I would be concerned about turning my ankle. If I wore pure fell shoes it would wear the studs down and I also need a bit of cushioning on track runs cos of my back.

    And if you want a completely different opinion, I reckon that road shoes are fine. Last time I did the Hobble I wore road shoes because I'd had knee pain when doing it in fell shoes previously and wanted the extra cushioning. There's a lot of running on hard surfaces.
    I'll probably wear road shoes again this year.

    Mind you if I had AuntySocial's cushioned NB trail shoes I'd probably wear those. But then what would he wear?
