Moorestown, NJ and Worcester, MA – RaceInsure and RunSignUp announced today an offering designed for races to protect them in the event of cancellation due to weather and other extreme conditions. RaceInsure is a distance running and walking race cancellation insurance program that was built by race directors, for race directors. The insurance is simple, and easy to understand, and available now at https://www.RaceInsure.com.
Race directors invest an enormous effort and take painstaking detail to ensure that every race day variable goes in our favor. RaceInsure helps insure against the variables that cannot be controlled on race day – a vehicle accident or house fire on the race route, bomb threat, severe and dangerous weather, earthquakes, wildfires, etc.
“A number of our customers were asking for help in finding low cost and available cancellation insurance,” said Bob Bickel, RunSignUp Founder. “We worked with RaceInsure to provide excellent coverage at a much lower cost than the 1.5% other companies are charging since we are not playing the middle-man.”
“As a race director myself, I wanted to help create an affordable and fair cancellation insurance product,” said Scott Sutter, Founder of RaceInsure. “As a race director, I have worked with RunSignUp and know they are the leaders in race software with thousands of customers who trust them. So they were our natural partner to spread the word.”
RaceInsure is available immediately and will soon be part of the new RunSignUp MarketPlace.
