“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.
