Other Gear

Shoes
Your feet are important! Make sure you have proper running shoes and socks. A general rule of thumb for running shoes is they last about 400 miles or one cross country season. For proper fitting, go to a running store and ask for assistance. If you tell the local running store you run for Walton, most give a discount.

 

Spikes (Cross Country)
Spiked shoes can also be purchased to wear when competing. Since most races are held on grass and dirt, spiked shoes can help with traction and speed. A spiked shoe has five to seven metal spikes inserted into small holes on the forward part of the shoe. When buying spiked shoes, make sure to purchase a distance running or cross country pair. This shoe should have a medium to thick-cushioned heel.

  

Watch
Runners will often need to keep track of both their times on distance runs and in specific workouts. It is very important for each runner to have a running watch and to wear it to practice each day. There are many inexpensive running watches that have everything you need on them to time your runs.
