- Registration Protection is provided by a third-party provider, Allianz Insurance (a list of what is covered and more information is available at https://www.etravelprotection.com/products/001003822.htm).
- If a claim needs to be filed, it is filed directly by the participant with Allianz. The event and RunSignUp are taken out of the loop. This is like any other insurance policy where a claim must be filed and then approved
