How to deal with running and walking blisters…

Whether you walk or run, one of the biggest challenges with an ultra marathon such as the Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones is the possibility of getting blisters along the way.

 

These tips are relevant for all of the Threshold Ultra Trail Series events.

 

While a professional shoe fit and custom insoles can certainly reduce the risk of running and walking blisters, over 100km of varying terrain and weather there are no guarantees.
