Wearing of headphones in road races
From April 1st 2016 a new rule regarding the use of headphones in road races was introduced into the 2016-2018 edition of the UKA Rules of Competition.
The new rule:
“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 restriction does not apply to races held on dual carriageways provided that there are clear, structured separations between the separate carriageways. Competition Providers of races held entirely on roads closed to traffic may apply this condition where appropriate to local circumstances.”
