We follow UKA standards and strongly advise that you DO NOT wear in ear headphones or use audio devices during the race for your own safety. 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. 9.

Disqualified runners will be removed from the race results, banned from future Brighton 10K events and reported to UK Athletics 11.
