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.

A runner could fall and suffer injuries or a spectator could get injured because of lack of barriers. Either could cite a failure on the organisers to provide a safe environment to ride and take legal action.

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.

Additional Options Available

We appreciate that some events need a bit of time to set-up and prepare. That’s why we are able to extend your coverage to provide Public Liability cover for the period immediately before the event or for a period of time following the conclusion of the event.

I was really pleased with how my claim was settled. It gave me great confidence that Protectivity covers me when the worst happens.
