My guess is most major events across the country will be forced to follow suit and hopefully forced to enforce the rule. All for the better as far as I'm concerned. Blocking probably the most important sense when surrounded by thousands of runners is a very risky proposition to say the least. If one were only placing oneself at risk, I'd say they have the right to risk their own safety. However, I witnessed a headphone wearing individual cause an incident that resulted in another individual breaking a leg and I've witnessed and been part of other incidents, in races and not, where it was someone in the wrong place at the wrong time getting hurt because an individual wearing headphones was oblivious to his or her surroundings.
