Thanks for the explanation, ITG, very useful.

The only thing I would take issue with is the statement "The commercial party instead can also insure..." This excellent post from a race organiser in March explaining their cancellation policy suggests Covid is/was "a named exclusion on every [events] insurance policy out there" centurionrunning.com

Which tells you something about the wisdom of planning a large scale event right now. No runner is going to get insurance either.

Sure but a runner might well be prepared to take a punt on a 20 quid entry fee. An organiser is less likely to be in a position to shell out thousands with no cover.

Got something to say?
