I organize running relay races, both one-day and overnight. I greatly appreciate that USATF will sanction and provide affordable insurance for events like mine, while other organizations will not. The online sanction application process is easy, and the support provided by USATF is responsive and collaborative. – Paul Vanderheiden, Race Director for Timberline Events
My organization sanctions 10-15 events each year, and I would highly recommend the USATF sanction program to anyone in the race event management business, for two key reasons. The first is that it gives credibility to our event and our organization. Being affiliated with and sanctioned by USATF elevates us in the eyes of participants, host cities and our event partners. The second is the tremendous benefits of their event insurance. It’s cost-effective, convenient, the USATF staff is always quick to assist, and you don’t feel like you need to be an insurance expert because they’ve already taken care of that for you.  - Jason Todd, Race Director for Flat-Out Events
We at Ragnar Events have greatly benefitted from relying on USATF to insure our relay events. USATF has been the perfect insurance partner for our needs: their rates are exceptionally competitive, they really understand the nature of the running industry and the need for fast turnaround and flexibility in event registration counts, and they are invested in our success as a company. That is clear in their excellent customer service, and their availability and willingness to answer any questions that arise. Ragnar Relay races are especially challenging with the volume of certificates we require to cover a 200-mile course with dozens of entities, and USATF handles it all with flawless execution. They can handle special requests for endorsements and requests for special amounts of coverage. We are becoming convinced that there really is nothing that they can’t do, as far as insurance goes. We would give USATF sanctioning 10 out of 10 stars for customer service, affordability, flexibility to meet needs, and ease of use. They manage to make insuring your event the easiest checkmark on your to-do list. We have been loyal customers for going on ten years and we don’t plan to go anywhere else.” – Katie Seely, Race Director for Ragnar Events
