What’s covered

Public Liability cover makes up the backbone of all our running event insurance policies. This means that should a member of the public, whether they are running in your event or not, suffer an injury and blame the event organisers. If they decide to sue you, the organiser, for their injuries, we will handle solicitors, the cost of defending you and if you are found to be negligent, the settlement of the claim.

Having Public Liability also covers you and the event should property damage by blamed on the event you are hosting. Like injuries, your insurance will cover you if negligence is found on your part.

We can tailor the policy to suit your needs, including the following benefits:

  • Employers’ Liability:┬áIf you have marshalls or other staff, voluntary or otherwise, this cover will protect you should they suffer an injury or have their property damage whilst operating at your event.
  • Sports Equipment: If you’ve use specialist equipment to operate your event, we can cover that for theft or damage too.
  • Set-up/down cover: We can extend your cover period to stretch to the period of set-up before your race and the time it takes to set-down all of your race equipment.
