Symbo India Insurance Broking , a digital insurance brokerage firm, in partnership with Reliance General Insurance and event ticketing company Goeventz has launched Marathon Insurance – a unique cover for marathon runners.


The comprehensive Marathon Insurance product covers accident and medical emergency during the event. The policy also offers runners cover in case of event cancellation by an organizer or if the participant cannot run due to health issues, accident or bereavement, along with a flight cancellation or loss of checked in baggage during transit. The expected claims settlement period is ten days.


To provide customers with a seamless digital experience, Symbo has achieved end-to-end integration with Goeventz to allow marathoners to purchase the insurance at the time of registration. Symbo’s technology platform will also handle all customer service and claims activity for policyholders.
