Event Partner Sony Europe are giving away a pair of truly wireless WF-SP700N earbuds to one lucky Weybridge 10k runner.
As the name suggests, these sweatproof (IPX4) earbuds are truly wireless – they enable you to listen to your favourite tracks with Bluetooth® connection and NFC connectivity for up to three hours when fully charged. They come with a compact case which does more than just keep the earbuds secure – they hold a further two full three hour charges to give you up to 9 hours of music playback and the ability to power up on the go!
These earphones come in 4 different colours and are the perfect choice for the Weybridge 10k when used in the “Ambient Sound Mode” – because this setting enables you to still hear your surroundings (marshal instructions etc) whilst listening to music. On the contrary, these versatile earphones also sport noise cancelling technology to block out distractions to keep you focused when listening to music in safer environments (gym, commute etc). So no matter when you like to listen to music, the Sony truly wireless WF-SP700N earbuds will have you covered!
To be in with the chance of winning a pair of these versatile earbuds, you must first ensure that you have entered/enter the Weybridge 10k. Then, tell us (on the giveaway post) what song you would use them to listen to whilst running (ahead of the giveaway deadline 23:59 on Monday 13 May). One winner will be chosen at random from all eligible entrants and contacted. By taking part in the giveaway, you understand that you will be contacted by the organisers if you’re lucky enough to win and your first name may be announced on social media. The prize can be collected from Weybridge Sports Shop.
Regarding the use of earphones at the Weybridge 10k, Race Director Rob Sweetman said:
“The Weybridge 10k is a UKA-affiliated event and is therefore compliant with UKA rules and regulations. The UKA rules of competition are clear that “in ear” headphones cannot be used in events where roads are open to traffic. For everyone’s safety, those who want to run with earphones must ensure that they can still hear and listen out for instructions from marshalls at all times – so they should not wear earphones without an Ambient Sound Mode (as described above) or bone-conducting technology. Earphones like the Sony truly wireless WF-SP700N earbuds will not only allow you to run safely whilst listening to music, but enhance your race day experience – the Weybridge 10k is well-known for its incredible atmosphere; the buzz of the cheering crowds is a part of what makes the Weybridge 10k such a memorable experience – it would be a shame to miss it.”
