Personal accident insurance

Individual accident insurance is optional but strongly recommended. It is proposed to be fully covered in the event of an accident during the Paris Marathon.

This insurance guarantees coverage for the athlete in the event that an accident occurs during the Paris Marathon, whether or not it is responsible, whether or not there is a third party.

Insurance cover extends from start to finish, and all along the Paris Marathon course. They allow you to receive compensation and full coverage in the event of an accident or death during the event.
