a delay in answering emails to the site because of this. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
iPods and Mp3 Players.
At the North Staffs Cross Country AGM the subject of iPods being worn during races was bought up. It is against the rules of the competition for anyone to wear
such devices during a race. Anyone seen next season with them will be taken out of the results.
It has always been the case in the Birmingham League. More and more races are now clamping down on the dangerous habit of wearing these devices and at the
Uttoxeter Half Marathon five runners were disqualified despite verbal warnings and notices around registration.
There are more and more tragic stories of people being killed and injured on the roads whist wearing them and it is pleasing to see
clubs taking a sensible attitude to try to prevent these tragedies happening.
