Notice of Disqualification due to the use of Personal Music Devices
Our race takes place on public roads. For this reason, due to safety, UK Athletics have strictly prohibited the wearing or use of Personal Music Devices, as is made clear in our rules. Nevertheless a number of runners, 8, were observed to be wearing PMDs and have therefore unfortunately been disqualified. The Notice of Disqualification can be read here: Notice of Disqualification - 2021.
