I'm looking for some ideas for a new trail shoe. Here's the big constraint: my "A" race will probably be muddy and wet. It has been for the past 3-4 years and probably will be again. Most of the trail is a horse trail (nothing will make you despise horses more than running or riding on a wet horse trail) with a little bit of fire road and little bit of non-technical, soft single track.
I recently purchased a pair of the MT1010. They appear to be fine, except they suck up every ounce of mud possible-the biggest problem is between the pods. I would not consider these to be an option for the race if it is muddy/wet. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm basically looking for a lighweight, low drop, mud shedding shoe that will keep me from sliding around (if that exists).
Race: 5-25K (My "A" race is 20K)
Pace-approx 7:15/mile for 20K
Heel drop: 0-8
Current shoes: Altra instinct, Saucony Fastwitch 5, Saucony Triumph 9. Past favorites: Kinvaras, Mirages. I seem to do fine in a wide variety of shoes. I need at least some cushioning. The Peregrines and Kinvara TRs caught my attention.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
