Allianz Partners joins forces with Running USA to protect runners


Allianz Partners USA, a provider of travel protection and consumer specialty insurance, has partnered with Running USA to support the growth of the running industry.

The partnership will see Allianz Partners offer an Event Registration Protector product, which the company said will help provide peace of mind for runners and protection for registration fees if participants are unable to run.

Allianz Partners promotes active living and appreciates its capacity to empower individuals and communities. The company said this partnership will help further this commitment.

Race registration protection plans can reimburse registrants up to 100% of pre-paid non-refundable registration expenses if a racer cannot attend for a number of covered reasons, such as covered injury/illness (of the racer or a family member), job loss, transportation delays, military/family/legal obligations, and more, depending on their plan.

The plans also include 24/7 assistance services, which can offer racers help with race-related problems or questions when things don’t go quite as planned.

Since its launch in 2012, Allianz said Event Registration Protector has protected over 1,500,000 racers and $179,000,000 in registration costs.

Chris Garlock, vice president of marketing at Allianz Partners USA, said, “We’re proud to be part of the Running USA network and better support the running community as well as helping provide the benefits from our innovative race registration product.

“Race registration protection provides runners with both peace of mind when they register for a race and provides relief when they can’t race due to a covered situation. Race organisers like the fact that runners have access to refunds, which may lead to a better race experience.”

Earlier last year, Allianz entered a preferred partnership deal which will see it take on the majority of Aetna International’s health insurance portfolio outside the Americas, Thailand, and India.

Aetna International selected Allianz Partners for this partnership deal to ensure that its customers can be migrated to a reliable and well-established international health insurer that can offer a high level of cover and service internationally.
