My glasses always steam up (and normally only one lens?!). It's usually when I stop, but can be once I've powered to the top of a hill, or worked a bit harder. I normally just have to give them a wipe and get on with it. Rain is always a problem!

Columba: I don't stick my head under in the Bog of Doom! Though yes, if I lost my glasses racing I'd be well and truly doomed!

The HUN that I watched, people were falling and floundering and bumping into one another in the Bog of Doom, and it seemed to me it would be quite a risk.

Like most others on here, mine only really fog up when I stop. However I've also found that they largely only do so early on in runs, whilst they're cold. After a short while they'll heat up enough from the warmth of my head that the moisture no longer condenses on them. So I just clear them off with my t-shirt a couple of times and it's fine.

I've discovered the heat causing another problem in the past though - I used to have shape memory glasses that would become all floppy and droop over my nose after a hard run!
