Not only are they liars, they signed what is considered a legal contract when they want to sue the race about something. They are in breach of contract.
Besides, the problem is that it's not just themselves that are being harmed by their use of headphones. Sure, it's fine to say that they shouldn't be covered by the race's insurance but what about when their negligence results in someone else being hurt?
If they violate the agreement that they signed on to, they should be kicked out. Bottom line, they shouldn't be allowed to enter the course in the first place. Whatever RDs do to keep them off the course, whether not allowing them on the course with headphones or disqualifying them later if evidence of headphone use is found, is perfectly warranted.
