Hi, I did the Bridgwater 5k on Sunday, they also do a 10k and half marathon....anyway, headphones were banned and if people wore them they would be disqualified, this a new rule by the athletics bigwigs so affects many races across the country. Personally, I think it is ridiculous and really puts me off taking part in races as sometimes music is the only thing that keeps me going and breaks the monotony !! Somebody posted this on a parkrun Facebook page and lots of people said that " real runners" don't listen to music when they run......how do you feel about this new ban??
