new york marathon and others
Hi How do you get insurance for overseas events I have asked a few companies but they say they will not do competive events I am 65 and would love to do some events abroad, any leads or ideas or do you not bother. Bill
I did the NY marathon this year with 2:09 events. They arranged the insurance which also covered you if you were injured in the run up to the event which I couldn't get cover for elsewhere.
The travel insurance i have 'free' with my Lloyd's platinum account covers overseas marathon running and I have a letter off them confirming it. They cover (as they call it) 'fun running' but not 'competitive' running (i.e. as an elite). I had a full conversation with them about their understanding of what I would be doing when I ran NYC and they sent me a letter to confirm I was covered.
Bill - In my opinion, you really need insurance if you are going to run in the US. Medical care is not cheap over there!
I have used InsureandGo who include marathon running in their standard cover without any problems.
