cleaning heavily soiled trail shoes

Hello

 Ran the Eridge 10 this morning, fantastic run, yet my trail shoes are caked in mud

 I would really appreciate some advice about cleaning them, could i put them in the washing machine? not sure if I could face cleaning them by hand

Thanks

 Chris

    No.  Hose them down then stuff with newspaper and leave to dry.  Works fine with mine.

    I have taken a deep breath and cleaned them by hand - yuck

  • i was about to say - it's ok for the shoes - but not the washing machine, it gets clogged up with all the grass and grit
  • Personally I make the missus do it

    Mine usually just get left till next run, then it all cracks/falls off, but if it is really bad, they do get hosed (or sluiced up & down in the water butt)

    However, on my most regular fell-race (series now sadly ended - 'The Trunce'), there was a river crossing not far from the finishimage

    +1

    one other tip - don't use detergent - just let the machine agitation get the crap out
  • just chuck them in a bucket of cold watwer for an hour..........then remove and pout in the sun..................or more likely stuff with newspapers and dry indoorsimage

    or just go and stand in a river at the end ......image

  • I can never catch mine.
  • madlot - stop stalking me!!!
