Triathlon Insurance

There is a common misconception relating to the club insurance cover. Triathletes who join clubs that are affiliated to British Triathlon may assume that they also benefit from the public liability cover for accidents that they cause personally when training with the club and that they would be able to claim on the personal accident cover for certain types of serious injury that they may suffer. These assumptions are incorrect.

To gain the benefit of these elements of cover they would need to join British Triathlon as individual members as well. This is particularly important for individuals who do their bike training on public roads.
