I've tried running in Smartwool merino hiking socks but find my foot moves around a bit too much compared to the Asics socks.

Might give those a go, used Hilly twin skins for the last two years which aren't too bad either.

I've tried all sorts of socks in the winter, Asics, Thousand Mile, Thorlo's, etc. For me, nothing beats good, old fashioned Canterbury rugby socks. Never EVER had any issues (or blisters) using 'em.

Going from sock chat, I'm thinking of upping my Tri game next year and make change to no socks for running. Anyone else run with no socks? I'm worried about the blisters.

I ended up getting some Icebreaker Run Lite Micro and some Smartwool PhD Outdoor Light Mini socks.
Haven't tried either of them yet though, been cycling rather than running recently.

can anyone recommend me some headphones for running?
good sound and don't fall out every five mins.
also, wondered if anyone here has done the Eyam half mara…

I'm the same and bought a Nike running hat thing made of thin licra, don't even notice it's there and it holds the headphones in place as well.
Cheers again sydneyking.

Does the ear piece go right in the canal?
I use klipsh which block alot of eternal noise (which I like), but they tend to slide out after 5 or so miles.
Gets very annoying having to keep,adjusting.

The ear piece kinda sits on the ear canal however, depending on your ear size and also how you manipulate the adjustable (by bending) ear hooks you can get a snug fit. There is a bit of external noise however when wearing the aforemenitoned headband, I find that it's completely blocked. Personally, I've never been able to use ear pieces that don't have the ear hooks as I find that they consistently fall out whatever size bud I use.
