What are Running Spikes?

Whether you are running to boost your performance and endurance level, or just making a run to enjoy cross country trails, you always find a need to consider running spikes.
There are different styles and types of spikes for short sprints, middle distance, and long distance. Here you will learn everything that helps you buy the right pair of running spikes for you.

What are Running Spikes?

Spikes are track shoes designed to ultimately boost your performance and help you run faster on uneven terrains. The Running Spikes provide extra grip to your forefoot and improve your stride. Spikes are lighter than road and trail running shoes and thus help you run faster.

Types of Running Spikes

There are four types of Running Spikes;

Sprint Spikes
For a short distance, sprint spikes are ideal. They are quite stiff and have little to no cushioning at the heels. They have maximum pins at the front to provide better grip.

Middle Distance Spikes 400m – 1500m
Middle distance spikes have more padding and cushioning at the heel. They are lightweight and less rigid than sprint spikes.

Long Distance Spikes 1500m and above
Long distance spikes are lightweight but provide the best cushioning. They are made of heavier and durable materials. Adidas, Nike, Asics, and Joma offer the best Running Spikes.

Cross Country Spikes Cross Country Races
Cross country spikes are designed for running on grass and uneven terrains. They have longer spike pins and offer more ankle support and a secure fit.
