Obstacle Course Race Insurance OCR

Extreme insurance for extreme events

Over recent years there has been a sharp rise in the number of people participating in running races, not just 5k, 10k & marathon events but also obstacle courses, ultras, adventure races, endurance events and some events that defy description.

The popularity of running events has seen some insurance companies try and cash in on the opportunity by offering event insurance and race insurance policies to organisers. Unfortunately, we have seen a lot of these polices that are not fit for purpose with nasty small print full of exclusions or restrictions. We have even seen some policies that actually exclude cover if a participant or spectator is injured!

At Mann Broadbent we have been insuring sport and leisure sector for over 50 years, with many of us being keen runners – our director did his first ultra way back in 1992 and ended up spending four days in hospital as a reward! Therefore we understand running & races and will make sure we find you the right policy to cover you and your event.

We can also advise you on risk management and administration of your race; discussing marshalling, disclaimers, obstacles, aid stations, risk assessments and all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes that the participants take for granted.

This is why Mann Broadbent is trusted by many of the big names in running events to provide their insurance in the UK and abroad.

If you organise events and would like help with your insurance please contact us or call us on 01905 612336.
