AfterShokz, promoters of safe running, are England Athletics’ official headphone partner.
AfterShokz was founded in 2011, in Syracuse New York. Since then, AfterShokz has been a pioneer of bone conduction technology, with over 300 patents worldwide.
AfterShokz, the No.1 bone conducting headphone brand
Bone conducting headphones are the only earphones that are approved for use in all road races under the UK Athletics Rules of Competition. The Rules are clear that “in ear” headphones cannot be used in events where roads are open to traffic. Using bone conduction technology, AfterShokz is able to deliver stereophonic sound through your cheekbones to your inner ear. Potentially preventing accidents caused by traditional headphones and earbuds that block out sounds, runners can enjoy their music and still hear everything around them – including traffic, emergency vehicles and other warning noises.
Safety is a top priority
We recognise that many of our participants across track and field and running enjoy listening to music while warming up or competing, so partnering with the number one bone conducting headphone brand means that we can better ensure their safety. Both England Athletics and AfterShokz are passionate about getting more people participating in running and athletics. Whether that is taking part in events, running solo or running socially with others, it’s key that their experience is safe and enjoyable.
