The use of personal music devices is prohibited at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, The Kaiser Permanente Napa Valley Marathon encourages a headphone-free environment.
We believe your race experience and those around you will be greatly enhanced by leaving the headphones or other devices at home or in the car. Running headphone-free allows opportunities to develop camaraderie with your fellow runners and to enjoy everything the race has to offer. Plus, volunteers and spectators will be on course cheering you on and providing directions to help get you to the finish line.
Runner safety has always been, and will continue to be, a top priority for our event. Please be mindful of the other participants and respect the race personnel to ensure a safe and enjoyable race for everyone.
