Adventure Racing Travel Insurance

Australian travel insurance is limiting – it only covers “racing” if it is a foot race. The foot race/run has a max coverage of 42.2kms so maximum coverage is a marathon only, so no insurance coverage for a triathlon, adventure race, some trekking,etc.. Additionally they only provide coverage from trip end to end (i.e. months of travel, around a comparatively short race).

For serious coverage, unlimited activities, unlimited altitude,etc. and specific dates, a reliable option is the aptly named Ripcord Rescue Insurance.


Emergency medical/helicopter search and rescue and evacuation (to $750k) works out to be ~$15US/day. Easy.
