We cannot emphasise enough the importance of insurance for the event.

Repatriation (within Europe) is included in the entry fee, but the overall cost of the event is significant and if you have to cancel, we would prefer you to be covered.

While we do not make it a condition of entry, we believe that this this should be the second purchase you make after your entry registration.

There are a significant number of cancellations every year. Some of them are last minute – illness and injury are major causes.

It is strongly recommended that you take out insurance around 12 months before the event.

The required E.C.G and Medical Certificate (not more than 4 weeks before the event) can also identify potential problems which can prevent you running.

The following companies offer insurance for UK-based MdS competitors. Please research them carefully to ensure they offer you cover that is appropriate to you.
