Topic - Running in serious snow

KlaasW on 05 Apr 2013
Last weekend, I ran across three Graham's, Beinn Dubh, Doune Hill, and Beinn Eich off Loch Lomond through snow and ice on my Innov8's and running crampons. All went fine but as I crossed a swamp between Graham 1 and 2, my socks got soaked, and on top of the hills again, where the windchill was about -20, it was getting scarily cold. These were only Graham's and not even Munro's. Yet, I see videos of Kilian Jornet running across Mt Blanc on what appears to be running shoes. What am I missing? After last weekend, I feel that the next step up in footwear is B3 boots and crampons. Is this silly? Does Killian use something in between? How do I avoid frostbite on the next run?
