I don't want this to become another slanging match about music in races (I'll admit to being pro music).
The status Quo is that they are now banned, however i can find no evidence to back this up? I've read the relevant sections of the current UKA rules book and don't see any mention of it the only thing i can find is a proposal.Rules Revision 2008 Consultation on Proposals A number of changes [b]...[/b] Unnumbered New Rule – Audio Equipment in Road Races: a proposal has been received fromthe UKA Road Running Management Group to the effect that audio equipment using earphones must not be used in road races and that any use of such equipment may result in disqualification.
this isn't a rule its a proposal and a bit contradictory word wise "must not be used" (banned) then says, "may result in disqualification", to me "may" means that the its up to the officials to decide.
Can anyone clarify this? are they banned or not? and where does it say this?
