UKA Rule 240: "Runners must not be accompanied by a personally owned or controlled dog in the race. NOTE: Entries may be accepted from runners with medical assistance dogs, subject to them being correctly registered and identifiable as such; and subject to approval by the Race Director."
“The wearing of headphones, or similar devices, (other than those medically prescribed), is not permitted in races on any single carriageway road that is not wholly closed to traffic.”This is a direct extract from UK Athletics’ Competition Rules 2018-20 edition. If any runner is seen failing to comply with this rule, regrettably we will have to disqualify.​ Runners can run with bone conducting headphones.
