For UK residents taking part in Ironman 70.3 events in their country of residence, our sports accident policy offers benefits such as income protection, personal accident cover and personal liability. This insurance can be taken out for the specific day of your race, even as late as the morning of the event.
For those competing in Ironman 70.3 events abroad, our sports travel insurance includes benefits such as £10 million medical cover, sports equipment cover, personal accident, personal liability, baggage and personal effects protection and delayed travel.
Most travel insurance packages don’t include cover for sport. If you already have travel insurance but it doesn’t cover you for half iron man, then our activity top up policy is perfect for you. Activity top up adds sailing protection to your existing insurance, giving you benefits such as medical cover and personal liability at great value for money.

More About Half Ironman Triathlon
Whilst elite athletes typically complete Half Ironman Triathlons within four hours, the races normally have cut-off times for each component, and the overall finish time must usually be within 8 ½ hours from the start of the swim.
Ironman Triathlons first came into being as a result of a dispute over who were the fittest athletes in the world. Was it the winners of the Waikiki Roughwater Swim (2.4 miles), the Around-Oahu Bike Race (112 miles) or the marathon runners of the Honolulu Marathon (26.2)? It was decided to combine all of these races together to create the ultimate test of endurance, granting the title of Ironman onto the winner.

Fantastic company, wouldn’t go anywhere else! Great customer service and competitive pricing – 5 stars from me!
Outstanding service! The support provided when my husband had an accident in France could not be faulted.
100% confidence in this company. I unfortunately had to make a claim last year when my golf clubs were stolen. The claims process was straightforward and well supported by SportsCover Direct.

I have used SportsCover Direct several times now for sports and summer sun insurance. They are first class at covering pre-existing medical conditions.
