Trail Running (UK) - - Training -

■ INOV-8 TERRA UL­TRA 260 SHOES With rain overnight and more fore­cast for the race, I de­cided on race-day to go with the ex­tra grip of the new Inov-8. They didn’t let me down; com­fort­able for 80km and stick­ing to ev­ery­thing while run­ners around me slipped and fell.

■ MON­TANE FANG ZIP T-SHIRT Great fit, no stink (thanks to odour-re­sis­tant Poly­giene tech­nol­ogy) and no rub­bing or chaf­ing. Best of all, I could let it soak through with rain and it would dry quickly when the sun came out.

■ SUUNTO SPAR­TAN UL­TRA WATCH With the course loaded on my watch, I was able to fol­low the bread­crumb on the oc­ca­sions where I was a lit­tle un­sure. And the El­e­va­tion Pro­file screen is great for prepar­ing you for up­com­ing hills.
