Question: What are the different types of running spikes?

Whats the difference between sprint spikes and distance spikes?

Sprinting spikes have rigid soles that help increase speed while sprinters are on their toes. Long-distance spikes use more flexible soles, enabling more natural foot movement and providing more comfort than the sprinting versions. The shape of long-distance spikes also tends to be flatter.

What is the difference between racing spikes and track spikes?

Track spikes are shorter than cross-country spikes and have more regulations regarding what can be used at each track. Most tracks state that spikes can be only 1/4 or 3/16 inch, or smaller. Cross-country spikes are made to gain traction on high grass and through the mud, so spikes generally are longer.
