I created this site in December 2016 to help people like myself find the right running shoes for them.  I have been into off-road running since 2006 when I moved to a small town just outside London, England.  Swapping the traffic ridden urban streets for a quieter rural place to live inspired me to make the most of my surroundings.  I started running in the fields and woods surrounding my house.  This much more fun way of keeping fit came with it’s own problems, including slippery grass, hills and muddy woodland and I found my amazingly comfortable sneakers (by Asics who I swear by for casual sneakers) just didn’t have the grip.   Now don’t get me wrong, I am certainly not a competitive runner, but rather, ‘run for fun’ and wanted to find shoes that I could run in all year round, not just when it was dry.

Amazingly there wasn’t a site dedicated to cross country running footwear on the internet.  Lots of companies sold such footwear, but how do you know where to start?  I have created this site to compare the best footwear for cross country running.

In the interest of openness, I would like to declare that my site is affiliated with some of the retailers featured but this has not influenced the selection of products on this site.  Rather I have sought to independently analyse products without bias and thereafter seek to affiliate with only those product lines I genuinely consider to be of high quality and value for money to you in order to provide you with a thoroughly researched list of options for you to choose from.

Feel free to send me any questions or comments using the Contact page and I will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible

Thankyou for reading about the site. I hope you enjoy using it and find it valuable.  Good luck with all your off road running…….just keep going!
