Can I wear headphones?

Although not recommended, personal stereos, IPods & mp3 players can be used at the Windsor Half Marathon. WHM follows UKA standards and strongly advise that you DO NOT wear in ear headphones or use audio devices during the race for your own safety, especially on road sections The Windsor Half is a 2-lap course and runners need to be able to hear our marshals who will ask the main field to move over as the faster runners and accompanying vehicles overtake them at speed on their second lap. We also occasionally need to get emergency vehicles along the course too. If you really can’t run without headphones please use common sense and show a duty of care to others. However, we endorse the use of Aftershokz and similar bone conduction headphones as these provides a safe solution allowing participants to hear their surroundings as well as their music.
