I'm about to run my full marathon. I've been training with headphones as music is a great motivating force for me. However, headphones are banned at my event. I got the idea of getting X-minis and running with them - this way I'll also provide a soundtrack to my fellow runners and won't have anything in my ears to compromise safety.
Common sense dictates that these should be allowed, it's not a hazard after all - but does anyone have such an experience? It looks like many events have banned headphones and include more or less the same wording:
As per BARR and UKA guidelines, IPod and MP3 players will be banned. Do not enter the race with headphones or earphones – you may be disqualified
I couldn't find the specific wording of these guidelines, however. Does anyone know more about this?
