Marathon Event Organisers

In the modern day the desire to find new sporting events to define perfection in a physical form reaches its peak. A marathon is a physically challenging and uniquely enduring sporting event which has grown very popular which all age groups. A huge 36,700 were enticed into the London Marathon in 2013 proving a great interest for the grueling 26.2 mile run. Completing, organizing and making such a task happen is rewarding, satisfying yet also taking big risks financially and medically both as an event organizer a participant or even a sponsor. Did you ever consider insuring yourself against the possibilities of event cancellation, disruption or national mourning?

Unless told otherwise we automatically include Loss Caused by National or Court Mourning in the country where the event is being held. This includes the death or funerals of people of national importance which coincides with date of the event.

Your event could be abandoned, postponed or even relocated due to an unavoidable circumstance which is why it is vital to insure yourself against every possible calamity which may arise.

British weather is highly unpredictable so it isn’t the most unlikely possibility that strong winds, torrential rains or blizzards would harm the chances of a Marathon taking place. Other unforeseeable natural disasters such as earthquakes or floods may be unlucky enough to occur on the day of your event which is why it is imperative to gain cover before such disasters strike and cause catastrophic financial losses to yourself and possible other business partners.

We can offer you cover for the following financial losses:

  • Lost Expenditure
  • Cost of Advertising
  • Loss of Profit
  • Return of Charges
  • Return of Sponsorship
  • Cost of Minimizing Disruption
  • Future Event Protection

Every event organizer faces the risk of participants’ complaints and threats of wanting their money back, so wouldn’t it be much simpler to have yourself insured against such a hazard and have that weight lifted of your mind? Even the danger of sponsors demanding refunds, yes we can also insure you for that too.

  In addition to this the insurance can also provide extra cover for:

  • Agreed Additional Cost of Avoiding Disruption
  • Cost of advertising those who need to know
  • Other Additional Expenses agreed with Us
  • Cost of Calculating Claim
  • Failure to Vacate Penalties
  • Other Obligations
  • Future Event Protection

Furthermore we also include Terrorism Cover, free of charge unless told otherwise.
Dependent on where you are based and where event is being held, cover will still be free.
