Specialist Insurance for Running Events

Regardless of whether you are organising a competitive running race or a more relaxed fun run, it is vital to protect yourself from Public Liability claims.

Public Liability covers you should you be sued by a third party (e.g. member of the public) for injury to them or damage to their property, up to the limit you have selected.

In situations such as these, having suitable running event insurance in place will protect you from having to pay out a large amount of compensation.

What Insurance Do Running Events Need?

If you are organising a race or fun run there are a number of things that you should consider adding to your policy.

Public Liability

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 or property damage and blame the organiser, you’re covered for the defence and settlement costs.

Equipment Cover

You may not be using a large amount of equipment in your running event, but any items you do use can be covered under your policy. With Equipment Cover in place you will be protected against accidental damage, loss or theft that occurs during your running event.

Employers' Liability

If employing any staff, paid or voluntary, it is a legal requirement to take out Employers’ Liability. This covers you as the event organiser if one of your staff was injured whilst working on your event, with any defence costs and settlement covered by us.

Event Cancellation Cover​

Cancellation, Abandonment & Postponement Insurance will cover you for your irrecoverable costs incurred as a result of the unavoidable cancellation, abandonment or postponement of the entire event for reasons beyond your control.
