For running fast on trails, hard-packed trails and over rocky terrain.
Superior trail traction: Multi-directional 4mm deep studs, each with a wide contact area, provide aggressive grip, excellent stability and the quick release of any debris.
Superior trail traction II: Using three sticky rubber compounds on the outsole increases grip and durability. The hardest, most durable rubber is on the heel, with a medium rubber up the center for increased traction.

UPDATE DECEMBER 29 2015:  Please do read the full story below about how and why we decided to travel.  But as we come up to exactly half way in our 8 month journey, feel free to check out some highlights (thanks Russ B) from our time in 10 countries, by clicking on the video link below:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines and sail away from the safe harbour…” Mark (Twain) Bailey

“I don’t want to be told I can’t do something.  I’ll just have a go at it and I may make a terrible mess of it, but I’d sooner make a mess than not have a go at all.  I don’t think age matters. What matters is your determination not to give up and not to stop learning new things….” Dame Judy Dench – York Lass

Well we’ve talked about it for long enough.  And now is the time to do it!

We’re two 50+ year olds, who love travelling…

… and when we heard a radio interview describe life as seven days of the week, we knew we had to act.  If life really is three score years and ten, then we’re on Friday night with a weekend ahead and if we are lucky, a Bank Holiday!  Not much time left really.  So, do we build an extension, stick with a couple of all-inclusive weeks in the Med or buy a sports car?  Or is there more to life – should we just jump in at the deep end, give up our jobs and take off for nine months travelling the World?

For us it was a no brainer because if you don’t do it, you’ll never know what would have happened if you had done it!

And therefore after 18 months of planning, on 31 August 2015, we embark on a 52,000 mile trip to 19 countries, not quite knowing what will happen, who we will meet and whether or not divorce petitions will be served after spending 246 days together…
