Can I wear headphones/earphones during the Folsom Lake Sweetwater Trail Run?
Yes, however, when you come into aid stations the event organiser recommends that you remove your listening devices so that they can communicate with you effectively. It is also recommend to only use one earpiece or to keep the volume low enough so you can hear the sounds of the environment, such as runners coming from behind or hikers up ahead.

Yes, the event cut-off time is 9 hours, meaning the event will end at 5pm.
