You will all be aware that, for safety reasons, we follow the IAAF/UKA rule which does do not allow the wearing of earpieces or headphones when an event is held on roads open to traffic, unless medically required and notified to us in advance. This same rule also applies to the use of any device which give pacing assistance. We have in the past disqualified runners for ignoring that rule. Whilst the same rule cannot be applied to the Fun Run WE STRONGLY DISCOURAGE the wearing of earpieces or headphones when taking part in events on roads open to traffic, Please do not do it.
Please note that, although the Fun Run is not an official AAA event, our results are checked and verified for us by an independent referee. Two position recorders record the order of finish of runners across the line, and we then compare these separate records to produce a prize winners list. Times given may not be totally accurate, as the times are taken from the 10 mile Road Run timeclock but, although this is a Fun Run raising money for local Charities, we try to be as accurate as we can for the first 30 or so finishers to give us an accurate prize list. The results given and now published have been verified by our Race Referee.
