    Any long distance runners around? I have the opportunity to run a 50km race later this year, going to be in the right place at the right time, and am considering having a go, it features 3300m ascent, running at 2500m above sea level in the French Alps

    So my running mileage is going up, now currently I run up to 10k as my normal session, more because that is a known route from the front door and I am more a endurance mountain biker; but, I do my running in VFF's, I have assorted mountain running shoes here, and was thinking, would you train for such an event in the trail runners, VFF (I often wear them for days on end) or a combination with the plan being mountain running shoes at the event? This last option is my current preferred

    Give them nothing! But, take from them everything!
