Why should I consider purchasing race entry fee insurance?

New York Road Runners has partnered with the consumer specialty insurance provider Allianz Global Assistance to provide race entry fee insurance for participants in the TCS New York City Marathon and select NYRR races throughout the year. “Registration Protector” from Allianz Global Assistance is available for purchase by NYRR race registrants, who are United States residents, for select events beginning in January 2018. Registration Protector from Allianz Global Assistance insures your event registration against unforeseen circumstances. Your policy will insure the financial investment you make in your registration (up to the amount of your policy limits) in case you are not able to participate the event for a covered reason.
