Race Preparation

Insurance

Insurance is a subject we get asked a lot of questions about so we have created a dedicated page to answer all your questions.

British Triathlon Race Licence, what does it cover?

Your British Triathlon licence is compulsory for taking part in a UK triathlon and it will cover you whilst racing for public liability up to £15m. It won’t cover your bicycle should it be damaged during the race or your medical expenses if you hurt yourself. This is especially important to note whilst racing abroad.

Group bicycle and event fee cover, what’s this all about?

Our event day insurance has been created by the team at Yellow Jersey Insurance to cover your race day. Our group policy, if you opt-in, covers you for the re-imbursement of your event entry fee should something unforeseen prevent you from participating (e.g. a new injury). The group policy also covers bikes on the day of the event for damage whilst racing and theft from transition (including overnight).

This is available to purchase when you enter your race, or from the online shop.

What is bicycle insurance?

Your bicycle is likely to be your biggest investment when you are a triathlete and is therefore worth protecting, especially as it is not typically covered whilst travelling and racing on a home insurance. Yellow Jersey offers a fully comprehensive bicycle insurance policy which you can take out for a short term or on an annual basis. Castle Triathlon customers get 10% off the very comprehensive policy which includes:

  • Crash or accidental damage while racing or training
  • Theft at home or away from the home
  • Worldwide cover
  • Bike box cover up to £1,000
  • £2m third party liability
  • 48 hour theft from transition cover
  • Accessories cover

More information can be found here.

Why do I need triathlon specific travel insurance?

Travel insurance is essential for UK residents taking part in our triathlons in France or Ireland. Most standard travel insurance policies exclude cover whilst racing and training abroad. We have made things simple as our partner, Yellow Jersey Insurance, offer the cover you need as standard, online. As a Castle Triathlon customer, you get a 10% discount on their triathlon specific policy which includes:

  • Trip cancellation up to £5,000
  • Medical expenses and repatriation up to £10m
  • Personal Liability up to £2m
  • Emergency Cycle Hire
  • Lost luggage and much more
