Policy on the use of personal headphones:

There are many sections of the RnR Liverpool course where runners are in a closed road lane, but the adjacent lane is separated by traffic cones and open to vehicles. The wearing of headphones in such areas is now prohibited under UK Athletics rules 240 S5. As a race organiser affiliated to UK Athletics we are bound by the rules of racing and headphones are therefore prohibited. However we do recognise the motivational power that music provides and have arranged a line-up of over 50 of Liverpool’s best bands to entertain you around the course.

We will not be instructing officials to enforce this rule strictly by implementing disqualifications, but you should be aware that you will be in breach of UK Athletics rules and are running at your own risk. We will however enforce UKA rules which state runners can be disqualified for not following the instructions of a race official – this includes stewards controlling the flow of traffic and runners, and marshals at controlled crossing points.

Not hearing a marshal due to the use of headphones is not a valid reason to avoid disqualification in this case.

We’ve partnered with several local running clubs to provide the Official Pace Team for the race. Pacers will help you reach the finish line at your goal time. Pace Teams are FREE and open to all participants.

Once you cross the finish line, you will enter a “Secure Zone” – a fenced off area for participants only. Here you will receive your finisher’s medal, can have your photo taken and pick up post-race refreshments.

After you exit the secure zone, proceed to the Finish Line Festival to celebrate your achievement, meet up with friends and family, have a beer and enjoy your headliner, Cast! The festival is free and open to the public.
