Athletics, like most sports, requires specialist equipment. The most notable piece of equipment is spikes, which come in many different varieties depending on your Track and Field discipline. Choosing spikes is like choosing trainers; you need to research and try them on yourself. You should ask your coach and/or squad leader for guidance on what to look for, if you are unsure.

Other common pieces of equipment are running clothing, trainers, foam rollers and massage balls.


There are many different types of these, and the best research is speaking to fellow athletes, coaches and of course, trying things out yourself.

If you can, we strongly recommend you purchase a foam roller. They are inexpensive and, when used regularly, help you to loosen off those tight muscles post-training, thereby preventing injury!
