The Music Never Stopped

I direct some races, including a 100 miler. I had no idea how passionate a person could be AGAINST music on the trails. This year, one of our runners made a really big deal out of another runner's choice to listen to music with 2 headphones, then ignore his requests to remove his headphones. In all my travels to big races around the US and abroad, I had never considered this an issue. I have raced along side some great runners with everyone wearing headphones and still carrying on a conversation. 2500+ thundering through Chamonix with music blasting and headphones in…no big deal. However, to this runner in my race, it was the greatest evil one could do and was reserved solely "for road runners and triathletes." Is this really a thing? Do people really care about whether another runner wears headphones? Or, is this just a pet peave of one runner?
