The Rules are clear that “in ear” headphones cannot be used in events where roads are open to traffic.
Bone conducting headphones are the only earphones that are approved for use in all road races under the UK Athletics Rules of Competition.
These potentially prevent accidents caused by traditional headphones and earbuds that block out sounds, runners can enjoy their music and still hear everything around them – including traffic, emergency vehicles and other warning noises.
