Why do I need hiking shoes?

The course has several elements which will require walking/hiking on trails in hilly areas up to 5 miles. The regular tennis shoe or sneaker is not stiff enough to prevent rolling an ankle on uneven terrain often causing sprained ankles and other injuries.  You can wear a full boot, though many prefer the lighter ventilated trail shoe type. No tennis or sport shoes please.
