Running shoes 'must be the right kind'
Bookmark and Share
It is "incredibly important" for those exercising in running shoes to get the best kind, an expert on the activity has said.

Editor of Running Fitness magazine David Castle said people heading for a long walk or run this summer without the correct footwear could find these will "cause no end of problems from minor ailments like blisters and sore toes through to injuries that can take weeks to recover from".

People should look to wear "breathable" running shoes and take expert advice from the professionals on what to wear.

Mr Castle also said the right running socks are vital as well, with the wrong ones rubbing the skin in the wrong places, while wearing no socks at all can lead to big blisters.

Many people will take up running to get fit and could enjoy taking part in large organised events for charity.

Examples of this include last month's Great Manchester Run, a 10k race setting out from the city centre to Old Trafford and the docklands area and back again.
