Penn Relays has advised us that CYO teams are not permitted to use spikes at the Penn Relay Trials on Tuesday, nor at the Penn Relays on Friday.
We will be checking for spikes in the Paddock Area on both Tuesday and Friday. Any athlete who is found to be wearing spikes will be suspended for rest of the 2007 season and their coach will also be suspended for the rest of the season.
Running flats or shoes that take spikes without the spikes in them are permitted. Anything that resembles or functions as a spike can not be used.
It should be noted that shoes that accept spikes do not need to have blanks in them, they simply cannot have spikes in them.
