I love mine but i'm not brave enough to orienteer in terrain in them!
hope this means the achilles is on the mend

They have just about the most aggressive outsole of any Hokas. I think they'd be a bit of a handful on terrain with steep gradients, but OK here where I'm just trundling along. The insole is slightly rubberised, presumably so it doesn't disintegrate like normal Hoka insoles do, but it didn't dry out overnight. They'd make good multi-day shoes though. Planning on another terrain run in them in the week.

Achilles tight afterwards so didn't bother to trek to Cannock for that event but did at least manage a second weekend run on Sunday morning. I'll be happy when I'm comfortable running every day again!

PS. Take a look at the ridiculous position of #17:

What was the point of that??? (There was also a control on a junior course right on the fence line there.)

that's a bit bizarre - and the line to 18 is strangely placed too

Yeah, I wonder why it's misplaced. I mapped my run on to an old Routegadget of the area and it looks as though #18 was in the wrong pit, to the SW (I ran straight to the depression where it's marked and then looped round to that other pit, so I feel vindicated in my suspicion that the map was vague at that point).

Oh well, no points lost :-)
