So I wrote about the Inov-8 X-Talon 190s as the Ultimate Footwear for ME to Run a Tough Mudder, but I’ve received questions. People have asked are they cleats?
Cleats are not allowed in the Tough Mudder. Imagine someone climbing over you to get over a wall with cleats on – no thank you.
If you want a program to help you get ready for an adventure race, like the Tough Mudder. Or if you just want to get in the best condition of your life, then you may be interested in this program from Craig Ballantyne. Check out his Turbulence Adventure Training Program.
Cleats or Not?
My conclusion is these are not cleats. I’d gladly help hoist someone over a wall at the Tough Mudder if they were wearing these. But if they were wearing cleats … not a chance.
