I have been training in rough terrain running shoes and do most of my training through fields and off road; will they be ok for use on the road when it comes to race day?

The problem you will find with your rough terrain shoes is that they will be heavier and will have a harder surface on the sole of the shoe. They also have a lot more grip. Ideally I would not run in these shoes for a road race, so I recommend you go and get yourself a road running shoe. Make sure you start to use these on some training runs on the road before race day to wear them in.

My running shoes recently got wet on a training run; any suggestions of how to dry them out properly?

How much wear can you get out of a pair of running shoes before you need a new pair and does the surface you run on make a difference?
