Hi , I took part in the Brentwood 1/2 yesterday i had a fab race & got a pb of 1.55 so was really chuffed, however i got disqualified... as i was wearing one ear piece in of my ipod! [ luckily was wearing my garmin so knew my time!] Wouldn't have minded but most of the time i didn't have it playing but didn't take it out as it would have been flapping about & driving me nuts!! I have done this race 6 times before & never known that ipods where not permitted. I did go back over the rules & in the small print on the 2nd page it does say no ipods/mp3 players, so i am in the wrong, which i accept, however its a shame they couldn't have publised the ruling more, i didn't see any signs up to say no ipods at the start or hear any anouncements [ no i wasn't listening to eye of the tiger then before anyone comments!!] All in all a fab race, i understand that the wearing of ipods can cause problems but having done the race before i know what the roads & lanes can be like, hence i only put one earpiece in, so i could listen for traffic & commands if they where called.
Anyone else got dq at Brentwood or any other races??
