RaceInsure is a distance running and walking race cancellation insurance program that was built by race directors, for race directors.
As race directors, we invest an enormous effort and take painstaking detail to ensure that every race day variable goes in our favor.
For the variables we cannot control on race day - a vehicle accident or house fire on the race route, bomb threat, severe and dangerous weather, earthquakes, wild fires - we use event cancellation insurance as our backstop.
Thanks to RaceInsure, even if the worst case scenario occurs... we must cancel our race... we are absolutely confident that all of our vendors will be paid and participant's entry fees are refunded. In the end, we retain and improve our goodwill and trust within the distance running community, as well as remove the financial risk of race cancellation from our balance sheets.
How do I get proof of insurance?
Once you complete the purchase process, a confirmation email will automatically be sent to you that summarizes the insurance coverage that was purchased.
