Yes (ok we should probably tell you a little bit more than that…)
Darth Coastal Runners (DCR) is a Guided Running Club affiliated to Welsh Athletics. This affiliation has many benefits one of which is that the club and any running event that DCR organises is covered by WAA insurance. A copy of their Policy can be found below this idiot guide.
The insurance provided through WAA covers the following DCR activities:
- Darth Mannion Beach and Swamp Run Challenge
- Darth Minons
- Darth Coastal Runners weekly runs
- Marathon De Gwyr
The WAA provide Public Liability cover for the organizers of the events. It is not Personal Accident Insurance (if you trip over your laces because you didn’t tie them up – that’s your fault!). It is important you read the insurance policy to satisfy yourself on the level of insurance cover that is provided at DCR organized events.
Your Participation in a DCR event is at your own risk.
Whilst the DCR Committee takes every care with staging all our events, by taking part and paying to either be a member or attend an event you are acknowledging that personal accident and personal items insurance is your own responsibility. The Insurance provided will not cover a loss of reputation, (hard luck Chris Coles) anticipated savings or wasted expenditure, pledges made on your behalf or to charity.
