Headphones From 1 April 2016 a new rule regarding the wearing of in the ear head phones in road races was introduced into the 2016-2018 editions of the UKA Rules of Competition.

The wearing of in the ear headphones, or similar devices, (other than those medically prescribed), is not permitted in races on any single carriageway road that is not wholly closed to traffic. Runners who choose to ignore the rule will be disqualified.

Headphones that work by conducting sound through bones and do not sit in the ears are acceptable.

The Start - the race will start at 6:00 pm; assemble on the Princess Gardens by 5:55 p.m. The start is approximately ¾ mile from race HQ next to the Torbay Big Wheel so you need to allow time to collect your race number with timing chip before making your way to the start.
