Event cancellation insurance specialist expands insurance program by partnering with leading endurance industry platform
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (February 9, 2017) – Event cancellation insurance specialist, Nicholas Hill Group, Inc., announced a partnership today with Achieve’s RacePartner division. The insurance specialist will extend their proprietary Event Cancellation Insurance Program to RacePartner, covering 100 percent of the events that utilize the event cancellation protection benefit.
The lack of refunds for canceled events has become both a public relations nightmare and a potential liability for race directors throughout the U.S. As municipalities and event venues grow increasingly concerned with their own liability exposure, they are frequently forced to postpone or cancel races when Mother Nature chooses not to cooperate on race day.
“Within the past few years, we have seen some of the country’s largest events, as well as smaller regional races, cancelling due to forces entirely out of their control,” said Nathan Nicholas, CEO of Nicholas Hill Group, Inc.
“These race directors find themselves in an unenviable position, having spent the majority of the registration fees on pre-race expenses. Although they would like nothing more than to provide full refunds, the money has already been spent. Today, RacePartner has taken a significant step towards eliminating this concern for every event that chooses to use their platform for registration services.”
With Event Cancellation Refund Insurance, registration companies who provide refund guarantees can now choose to purchase protection in case they must refund registrants of an event that is canceled due to adverse weather, natural disaster or terrorism.
“With the escalating price of entry fees, we feel that the traditional practice of “No Refunds” has become unacceptable for participants who expect to either get what they pay for, or receive a refund of their registration fees,” added Nicholas.
Thanks to innovative registration companies, such as RacePartner, race directors now have a choice – ask their registration company to consider a refund guarantee, or switch to a company that already provides one.
