Severe disease can lead to spinal fusion and disability.

AfterShokz Headphones

Cheshire-based AfterShokz and the Mablethorpe Marathon come together in new race partnership.

AfterShokz, the UK’s leading open-ear sports headphone brand, is to partner with us for this year’s Marathon and Half-Marathon events on Sunday 4th October.

Helen Nicholson, Chair of the The Mablethorpe Marathon Foundation said: “We are delighted to have signed this new agreement with AfterShokz and look forward to working alongside the team for the first time at the Mablethorpe Marathon this October.

“We are extremely proud of the Mablethorpe Marathon having been awarded a Gold grade by the British Association of Road Races the highest of the grades which demands the very highest standards of race organisation and provision. We also appreciate that many people train or race with music, and many want to listen to it as they take part in our events, but because conventional headphones are designed to block out ambient sounds, we continue to recommend runners do not use MP3 players with conventional ear buds. AfterShokz headphones are different in that their open ear design, which sits on the jaw bone, keep the ears free to hear ambient sounds which heightens awareness and fosters greater safety.”

AfterShokz President and CEO Bruce Borenstein said: “We’re thrilled to be on board as the official headphone partner of the Mablethorpe Marathon and to support this gold standard race which caters for the needs of runners of all AfterShokz open ear headphones have secured a series of national and international awards for their innovation and design and Mablethorpe Marathon Foundation are offering our runners the chance to obtain this wonderful product at a special promotion price.
