Miscellaneous Info

Running Watches

Your student should have a simple running watch to time their runs. Running watches are required for some workouts.

 

Cross Country Spikes

Spikes are special racing shoes used to keep traction on cross country courses since they are not paved.

 

A good pair of spikes will give any athlete an edge in competition due to their light weight and ability to grip uneven terrain in Cross Country. However, this advantage comes with a pricetag of approximately $50.  We recommend any varsity runner to invest in a good pair of spikes if possible.  Likewise, the top JV runners should also consider buying a pair of spikes, especially if their shoe size is fairly stable; as the spikes can last their High School XC career.
