Spikes

To maximise performance and prevent damage to the Mondo surface, athletes must not use sharp spikes that will penetrate the surface. The only spikes permitted for use on the track are of the Christmas Tree and Pyramid shape variety as pictured below. The composition of the spike, i.e. ceramic or metal, is irrelevant and will not be monitored.

For all training and competition the spikes must conform to the below rules;

  • Track spikes must not exceed 7mm
  • Field spikes must not exceed 9mm except for javelin & high jump which must not exceed 12mm
