Shoes for grassy half marathon


Any recommendations for shoes for a half marathon which is primarily on grass but also features some paths (Hackney marshes). I'm tempted by cross country studs, any thoughts?

Thank you.


  • if it's dry normal road shoes will be fine.  if it's been wet for a while some trail shoes would probably help grip.  you won't need studded shoes unless it's as muddy as hell as if it's been peeing down for months.

  • as above, light trail shoes would do the job if wet!!! I only wear studded shoes if it's muddy and hilly!

  • Makes sense. Thanks. 

  • It's pretty dry at the moment. Road shoes or trail shoes should be ok, unless we get a sudden monsoon.
