This week's rule is 3.4i — Unauthorized Accessories. 

The rule bans the use and possession during competition of personal audio devices - radios, headsets, iPods, Thumps, etc., and hard casts. The rule is designed to prevent athletes from being distracted and unable to follow instructions for course monitors, police, and other athletes. 

This particular rule has the distinction of being repeated under cycling conduct as Article 5.8 and under running conduct as Article 6.3. When preparing for competition, it is a good idea to leave your music devices in the car or at home. While it may be more fun to have music during the race, it isn't necessary and it could prove dangerous.

Here's the rule:

3.4i. Unauthorized Accessories.


No participant shall, at any time during the event, use or wear a hard cast, headset, radio, personal audio device, or any other item deemed dangerous by the head referee. Any violation of this section shall result in a variable time penalty.
