Track athletes can wear regular running shoes – special track shoes or spikes aren’t necessary. Please make sure the shoes fit properly and are sturdy and not worn-down.
If your child has had prior biomechanical issues with running, they may benefit from getting a running gait analysis to determine the proper type of running shoe for them. Runners’ House (running store) in River Vale can do those types of analyses and make recommendations.
Please make sure your child comes to every practice with a bottle of water.
