I am intending to run in the 13km 'Trail Blanch des Vallées d'Ax' on the 23 January which will be the first race I have ever done in the snow. The current weather is providing a good opportunity to test out my Inov8 Mudclaw running shoes in snowy conditions so we had a little jaunt along the road to the shop at Espies this morning to see how they performed.
They proved to be extremely grippy on the snow but their grippiness failed (not surprisingly) when they came into contact with the layer of ice that coated the road beneath the powder. However, the race will be on pisted tracks and trails around the Plateau de Beille so I am confident that the shoes will keep me upright. I can't wait!
