Ultra Marathon Event Insurance

We provide ultra marathon event insurance for many sporting competitions for ultra marathons throughout the year spread around the world. The list below is a brief overview of some of the main ultra marathon event insurance our customers take out cover for however we provide cover for many more!


Ultra-marathons encompass all running events which are longer than the set marathon distance of 26.2 miles. The events themselves can either be those that cover a specified distance or those that occur over a set time period with the winner being who can cover the greatest distance.


Long distance running has forever been around, but the rise and popularity of ultra-marathon events hit off during the early 1980’s when an organisation was formed to formalise the sport known as the IAU and from there it was officially recognised by the International Association of Athletics Federation or IAAF in 1988.
