Audio Devices

Under UKA rule 240 S5 the wearing of 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. There are some sections on the Gosport Half course which do have traffic coming in the opposite direction to runners and is therefore not wholly closed.

  • The wearing of such equipment may prevent you from hearing instructions from marshals and other event staff as well as the hearing of sirens/horns from emergency services and other vehicles. By wearing such devices you are putting yourself and those around you at risk.
  • Rule 240 S5 also states if the athlete wears bone conductive headphones, these are acceptable as these work by conducting sound through bones and do not sit or block the ears.
  • For the Gosport Half Marathon Bone conducting headphones are permitted so long as the wearer can hear traffic and marshal directions. Please do not risk our ability to get a future license for this event by ignoring this rule.
  • Runners seen to be wearing headphones other than bone conducting headphones will be disqualified buy the Event Organisers
