On March 14 at 11am PST/2pm EST, Nathan Nicholas of the Nicholas Hill Group, a leading provider of event insurance services, will present an online webinar about why endurance events should hold insurance, with a focus on the most up-to-date policy types and important questions all event organizers should ask before purchasing a policy.

“This webinar will cover the most current information and questions to ask when researching policies for both liability and event cancellation coverage. Insurance is an ever-changing industry, so we look forward to Nathan returning to educate us further about this important issue,” said Brian Lyons, director of membership for Running USA.

Industry experts consider event liability/participant accident insurance coverage a best practice, due to the unforeseen liabilities inherent in hosting a mass participation athletic event. Cancellation insurance is also more frequently carried by event organizers, especially as natural disasters and unexpected weather events have forced the unanticipated cancellation of more running races than ever before.

“We’ll cover all of the most up to date issues and answer your questions about insurance in this webinar,” said Nathan Nicholas, co-founder and CEO of Nicholas Hill Group.

Running USA and the Nicholas Hill Group believe that a properly desired liability policy is the foundation of any successful, responsible event.  Additionally, this critical insurance coverage is typically the first requirement that a venue or event location requires.

Running USA members enjoy member exclusive pricing on any event cancellation policy purchased after verification of their active membership in the industry’s leading non-profit organization. Information about the two policy types and details on obtaining an insurance quote can be found at
