Adventure race insurance and fun run insurance

If you organise adventure race events or ‘fun runs’ you need the best possible public and employers’ liability cover. Here’s why…

Is your event in the UK Adventure Racing Championship or just a local fell race up a Lake District mountainside? Every adventure has some risk and a sprinkling of danger – that’s half the appeal for racers. However, you don’t want something minor to become an unexpected (and uninsured) adventure in helicopter evacuation or legal action.

That’s why you deserve a special insurance broker –and bespoke adventure race event insurance designed for your activity. Don’t settle for anything but proven cover to protect you while planning, organising and running your events. In addition, make sure you’re covered for today’s higher indemnity limits (often stipulated in contracts). A £10m minimum is common these days, and many brokers can’t get that underwritten in full by one insurer. We can, which makes everything much easier for you.

More on adventure run insurance

We’re both professionals in our field, so we understand the risks with amateur or professional adventure racing. And how minor mishaps can quickly turn fun runs into ‘not so much fun’ runs:

  • On a fell run in the UK hills, a marshal is run into by a competitor, causing an injury.
  • Someone claims against your subcontractor and you get dragged in...

For thousands of runners, adventure running provides a muddy-but-incident-free challenge. However, as an organiser, one serious issue could mean that your reputation (and your capacity to run more events in future) takes a tumble.

Adventure race insurance that works

Like knee bandages and mitts, insurance isn’t ‘sexy’ or stylish. However, having the right cover, like having good running kit, gives priceless peace of mind. Imagine how reassuring it will feel knowing everything and everyone is covered at every stage of your event.

That’s right, at every stage. Cover shouldn’t just start on event day, especially when annual cover is more cost-effective for you and protects season-long (with year-end adjustment depending on how many events you ran). Imagine the damage to your reputation and livelihood if an early-season claim prevents you organising more events later? It happens with event-by-event cover – but it’s unlikely with an annual policy.

Whatever your event, over 30 years in your field (or ‘on your fell’) and our specialist underwriters mean we arrange the right cover backed by service you can trust. We’ll look after your adventure race insurance while you and your competitors plan and enjoy the run.

Unfortunately, we can’t make hills gentler or puddles less muddy – but that would spoil the fun anyway!
