@Beware Of The Fish - as you were overtaking it was your job to do so with due care regardless of what the person in front was doing.
Luckily it's only the non serious back of pack runners who wear headfones in races

Stats are a funny think Artie. For instance, I came top 2.4% in a half marathon with 7500 runners, yet only top 16% in a 4miler the next year.
And of course my comment was tongue in cheek, as I actually lost my proud record of not losing to someone wearing headfones at a 10miler in October this year....he did smack a 57 though, which is alright!
At least you beat the show off....there's something amazingly satisfying about the tables being turned from school...the kids who beat me back then (ie everyone), are now bloated non running boozy layabouts
Also I've heard they use ipods in races
Whilst it can never be proved behind doubt a runner local to me died and at the time it was considered that her MP3 player impeeded her situational awareness.
Tragic loss of life.
