This insurance is a supplemental agreement to cover non-participation in the race due to serious illness or circumstances. The insurance shall be taken simultaneously with sending in your application form. Insurance against non-participation is not possible at a later point of time! 
Under this insurance, we offer non-participants the opportunity to start at the same distance in one of the next two years (no additional payment necessary even if the registration fee should rise in the years to come!), if the applicant in question can bring proof of the following reasons making his participation impossible:
1.The applicant is suddenly afflicted with a serious illness
Severe health impairment following an accident or disease, or decease of the registered applicant. A disease or health impairment is considered severe, if it is definitely impeding participation (e. g. fresh bone fractures, different forms of cancer, which have only been diagnosed after application). A common cold and all sorts of influenzal infection, muscular dysbalance and the like are not consider as severe health impairment. 
Psychiatric diseases, that are only detected after application, and that require in-patient treatment and/or treatment by a specialist doctor of psychiatry.

Application for compensation must be accompanied by: Clinical confirmation of in-patient treatment or psychological appraisal composed by a specialist doctor of psychiatry.
