STATE FINALISTS

Huge Congratulations to our State Finalists for outstanding performances this weekend in Virginia Beach!

 

Nicolas Dewolfe placed 2ndin the Pole Vaultwith a 13'0" vault. His previous best was 11'6" and he rose to the occasion. He almost won the state title with both athletes clearing 13'0" and both missing at 13'6". The score ​went to misses and Nic missed 2 times at 13'0" and the other competitor only once. Congratulations Nicolas!

 

Haley Heironimus placed 10thin the 3200m with her 3rdfastest time ever in 11:33. The race was a more tactical race with a group of girls that slowed the pace and then kicked in the final few laps. Haley competed with guts and gave it her all.

 

Spencer Torok had a NH at 11'0" but almost had a big PR for the day! He competed very courageously. Look to see him back at states again.

Why use running spikes?

Running spikes are ultimately designed to help you run faster on certain, uneven terrain. By providing extra grip to the forefoot you can transfer more force forward, using that stick to push off, improving your stride turnover.

Lighter than regular road running or trail running shoes, running spikes will also help you pick up speed.

 

SPRINT SPIKES:

 

For short distances at speed, sprinting spikes are best for 100 metre to 400 metre sprints on a track. The lightest running shoe on the market they are designed to put the runner on their toes, leaving them with little to no cushioning at the heels and usually quite stiff. The spike plate at the front will have the maximum number of pins to take more force and provide as much grip as possible.  

 

MIDDLE DISTANCE SPIKES:

Still fairly lightweight middle distance running spikes will have more padding at the heel for greater cushioning over an 800 to 1500 metre distance. They're less rigid than sprinting spikes and the spike plate is not as far forward on the toe allowing for a more moderate speed. 

 

LONG DISTANCE SPIKES:

Best suited for events from 1500 metres to 10,000 metres, these running spikes provide the best cushioning while still maintaining a lightweight feel. They also do not feature the same aggressive spike plate as some of the shorter distance spikes. 

 

Designed to take on more force over a longer period of time they're made from more durable, but heavier, materials. Sometimes middle and long distance spikes are grouped together. 

 

CROSS-COUNTRY SPIKES:

With slightly more cushioning than your typical track spike, these are developed for running on grass in cross-country events. Typically used with longer spike pins, these are designed with more ankle support and a more secure fit for uneven terrain.
