This specialist product will provide protection purely for the marathon running element of your trip as an add on to your existing travel insurance.

More About Half Marathons
Half marathons are popular races for beginner runners looking to take on their first challenge, as well as club and experienced runners seeking to push down their finish times. As with all distance running, the appropriate training is crucial, and training distances should be built up over time before the race.
Half marathons are classed for us as a sport of low risk. It is really important however to warm up and stretch properly before a race to minimise the risk of injury.
