I want to do the Eastnor castle Icebreaker event in a couple of months as there's a 20km MTB route around my local patch.
Unfortunately it's preceded by a 10km trail run through wet and muddy conditions.
So I need advice for which shoes to (a) train in for the running bit and (b) do the event in.
Training shoes - gore tex or breathable +sealskins?
Event - any point in trying to stay dry? Football boots for extra grip?
