What is covered under the Event Cancellation Refund Program?

If you aren't already participating in imATHLETE's Event Cancellation Refund Program or, heaven forbid, you don't even know what it is, you must stop everything you are doing and go here and read about the Cancellation Refund Program.

If you already know about it or are interested in learning more, here is what the disclaimer says and what is covered in the policy.

[Spoiler Alert]  The Cliff Notes version is this:
If you cancel an event due to weather or terrorism, imATHLETE will refund your participants in full, up to $1,000,000 per event.  This Program doesn't cost you, the event organizer, a penny. In fact, it's a revenue generator for you.  Yup, you make money.  Find out more about that here.  In the meantime, here's the disclaimer...

imATHLETE'S COMMITMENT TO REFUND

i
mATHLETE will provide a refund of your registration fee to you should the event be cancelled or postponed for one of the following reasons and not rescheduled within 90 days:

Adverse Weather - that is outside of what can be expected on a day to day basis, which occurs or is occurring in the period up to 72 hours prior to the Event and within 100 mile radius of the organized event location.  It does not mean the threat of Adverse Weather.

Natural Catastrophe - earthquake, tsunami, flood, volcanic eruption, hurricane, tornado, forest fire and/or any other extraordinary meteorological event causing widespread damage within 100 mile radius of the organized event location.  It does not mean the threat of a Natural Catastrophe.

Terrorism - this means an act or series of acts, including the use of force or violence, of any person or group(s) of persons, whether acting alone or on behalf of or in connection with any organization(s), committed for political, religious or ideological purposes including the intention to influence any government and/or to put the public in fear for such purposes in the period up to 72 hours prior to the Insured Event(s) and within 100 mile radius of the organized event location.  It does not mean the threat of an act of Terrorism.

Please note that we will not provide any refund should a covered event be cancelled once it has started.  We will also not provide a refund if the event is rescheduled to take place within 90 days of the original commencement date of the event or if the covered Event also provides refunds for the same perils listed above.

Should the event be cancelled for any other reason than explicitly stated above, imATHLETE is unable to guarantee a refund of your registration fee. If such an occurrence takes place, you should consult the event organizer about their refund policy.
