Title:Solo Runners - Headphone rule for 2015
Date:Saturday April 4th, 2015
Author:Rick Smith
[Report: Image]Dear 50K and 100K solo runners,

The race director (that's me) has announced that "ear phones" will be permitted in this year's race.

In years past, the primary objection to runners' wearing ear phones and similar devices was that safety could be impaired. Runners with ear phones, for example, had more difficulty listening for motor traffic; runners coming up behind them; and instructions or questions by bicycle monitors, course marshals, police officers, aid station workers, and others needing to communicate with runners.

Please (1) don't get hurt, (2) don't hurt others, (3) don't be discourteous or unresponsive to those other people wishing to communicate with you, and (4) don't make the race director look bad for trusting you to wear ear phones or similar devices responsibly.

Thank you for your consideration.
