Spikes are recommended for athletes aged 10 years and up, and may only be worn in competitions by athletes 10yrs and over.

NB.  If you are wearing spikes in sprint events, you will be required to use starting blocks at the start.

In Summer
At Newtown Park’s “mondo” track the maximum permissible spike lengths are 6mm.  Please note that cross-country or ‘needle’ spikes are not permitted on the track.  Please check the notice near the entrance to the track for more information on spikes.

It is important that the right spikes are worn - Cone or Xmas tree spikes are suitable. !!
