What is Ultra Race or Endurance Race Insurance?

Ultra race insurance, also known as endurance race insurance, is a specialised form of insurance designed for individuals and organisations involved in extreme sports and endurance events. These types of insurance for racing provide financial protection for participants, organisers, and sponsors in the event of accidents, injuries, or other unforeseen circumstances.

Why do I need Ultra Race Insurance?

An Ultra Race consists of a racing event exceeding the 26.2-mile marathon insurance distance – making it one of the most gruelling and physically challenging races available.

Due to the extreme nature of an ultra race, it is important to have a suitable level of insurance in order to cover yourself as an organiser. Ultra Race Insurance can provide you with protection should a participant or member of the public be injured during one of your events.

Whether your ultra race involves running, cycling or an OCR, Mann Broadbent can arrange ultra race insurance to protect you, your event and your participants. Endurance race insurance can offer peace of mind during an event. Knowing that they are covered in the event of an accident or injury can allow them to focus on their performance and enjoy the experience.
