The wearing of spikes is recommended, although not essential, for cross-country races. Spikes can be purchased online with no major difference among the usual brands. Some shops, such as the Sports Outlet in Mullingar, will likely have them in stock. They should come with 9mm spike pins/studs which is the preferred length for cross country.
