The Wild Ginger Running live show is at 6:30pm every Wednesday, and this week I’m answering a dozen of your trail and ultra running questions including advice on budget GPS watches, headtorch queries, groin injury, ultra pacing, washing hydration bladder, training for a trail half marathon, routes in the East Midlands, drinkable nutrition and running pack zip lube!

GPS watches
I really like my old Garmin 225 (not sold anymore) but I started off with their cheapest model, the Forerunner 30 which is £90

The best budget Garmin for regular runners who don’t need many navigation functions is the Forerunner 235, £127
UK £127

And if you want navigation, I’d go for a Garmin Fenix 5, £355
UK £355

The rival to Garmin is Suunto, they’re excellent quality but I don’t find them as intuitive to use
Suunto 3 Fitness, more basic, for budget and beginners £125

Suunto 5 newest, and best one to go for £219

Also up and coming are Coros
Coros Pace £178

Coros Apex £299
