shires and spires

hi . shires n spires will be my intro into ultra running .looking forward to the event although a tad nervous at the prospect .

my question is regarding footwear.

anyone ran this course previously advise on type of trainers needed ?

ive a feeling my road shoes may be unsuitable , so if I buy trail shoes do I go light trail or heavy ? 

thank you for any pointers.

happy running .

    I did this few years back as my first ultra .. If it's anything like it was that year ( hottest June ever !) then I'd say just go with whatever is comfy be it road or trail shoes .

    There are a lot of fields to go through , some are grassy , some were baked dry mud , road sections too connecting the off road parts , so a fair bit of Tarmac thrown in .

    It's a really lovely route though , if you get a good sunny day the views & scenery will be greatimage Good luck on your first ultra , it's a nice low key one image
