Great athletes need great shoes, and Marathon Sports is the number one place to get them.
Running spikes are necessary for runners who want to compete at their best on the track. Mid-distance track spikes are lightweight, but they still offer some cushioning in the heel to provide comfort during 800 to 1600-meter runs. They’re not as firm as track spikes for sprinters and not as cushioned as traditional running shoes.
Instead, mid-distance spikes are designed to encourage a fast and consistent speed. They offer additional grip on the shoe’s forefoot to make stride turnovers faster and stronger. Track spikes are lighter than trail running or long-distance running shoes, which can also improve a runner’s speed.

Competitive runners require different types of spikes based on their foot size, shape, injury history, support requirements, and other factors. At Marathon Sports, we make it simple to find the best mid-distance men’s track spikes and women’s track spikes— including 800m spikes and 1600m spikes—from the most trusted brands in the game, like:
