4. Booking Protection:

For the 2018 event, you have the option to Protect your booking with Registration Protection for a small fee. Receive a full refund of the purchase price and processing fee should you be unable to attend the event due to a specified reason, such as:

  • Injury or illness
  • Vehicle breakdown or theft
  • Adverse weather resulting in travel warnings
  • Work relocation
  • And more

You will be able to select this option at the checkout stage and download the latest coverage details. Registration Protection is provided by Booking Protect Ltd, and you should contact them directly about your policy and how to claim and not the MK Marathon team.
