She informed me that the RRCA has been encouraging headphone bans since the 80s due to the recognized risk.
I had no idea the issue went back that far. I suppose 'knee-jerk' was a poor choice of words.
What status quo would that be?
I am referring to the current ban on the use of headphones at most races. For enforcement, I would settle for a simple announcement before the gun reminding runners that the use of headphones is a violation. I can't say that I've ever heard one. I would be curious to find out if those in violation are aware of it.
