Its about avoiding Injury. During distance races athletes are right up next to others and if something when they bunch up and fall earrings can get caught and sometimes ripped out of ears and a necklace can be pull down. I have seen some nasty falls when I ran track distance runners can get aggressive since they dont have to stay in their lanes like the short sprints.
injuries are going to happen no matter what
over doing rules like this is actually doing more harm than good to the current generation
let me put this a couple of ways
1. the more rules that schools make and the less sens they make, the more the students are going to want to break them and not get caught (that's not a good way to teach our kids now is it?)
2. as far as the overly done safety rules go, if the kids aren't allowed the chance to make the mistakes what's going to happen when they get out into the real world and are no longer suppressed by those rules?
