Can I wear headphones in the Boston Marathon?
While the B.A.A. discourages the use of iPods and headphones, we do not impose a ban on wearing such devices in the Boston Marathon except for the elite men and women and all those eligible for prize money. Many runners choose not to wear headphones, and instead listen to the crowd cheer them to Boylston Street.
