What size of pins for spikes for Xcountry?

What is a good length of pins for spikes for cross country on grassy fields that are not very muddy from little rain? ie. the BC Athletics Cross Country course tomorrow. Should 7mm or 9mm be used?

    the bigger the better

    Always bring every spike length you have to the races, as well as a wrench. Would recommend 9's if it isn't muddy and no gravel, but some races will need 12-15mm such as Jericho Beach on a rainy day, or Kingston

    So is it mud, snow . . .? Why ever would you need 12 - 15 mm pins? Seems excessive. Asked by someone who has never raced in Kingston, but might want to try this year.

    Yes it is snow and mud. The muddiest corners . I have never found 12mm pins to be excessive in Kingston, even though I race in 7's or mostly 9's all season. The first race of the day might be okay in 9's, before the course is churned up, but at XC Nats, by the time the youth (U18) and community races are over the course is one big mud pit
