I need some advice on xc spikes. I'm doing a race on Saturday in Richmond Park so I'm expecting a lot of mud/ snow. I've done a couple of xc races before but always in my normal running shoes. This time decided to treat myself to a pair of xc spikes. The question is- what length of spikes should I use? The shoes I got came with 5mm ones but the guy in the shop told me I would be better off with 9mm. Does it largely depend on the surface you run on? Which ones would be best for my race? I don't think there are any gravelled sections on this one but every race is different. Should I change the spikes depending on the race?
Advice much appreciated!
