Mountain Rescue Insurance

If you are planning to participate in this trail running camp, we wish to point out how vital it is for you to buy mountain rescue insurance coverage.

That's why we, as the event organizers and trail runners ourselves, want to stress yet again the importance of having the right insurance coverage!

 

For example, we recommend these sources as some of your insurance options:
