Fell Running Insurance
Are you planning a trip to go fell running? Make sure you look at travel medical insurance!
The morning air is still hanging over the mountain. You lace your shoes up, making sure they are tight. After you stretch, you look over the course. It is going to be steep and rugged, but that is why you love fell running. You love the challenge of pushing yourself uphill as fast you can.
As you travel the world looking for the next great place to fell run, you need to stay insured. Many domestic insurance plans will not follow you abroad and may not keep you covered as you participate in fell running. Are you prepared to handle an emergency if you have a fell running accident or injury? Atlas Travel® insurance from HCC Medical Insurance Services can give you peace of mind as you travel abroad and can keep you protected while you run.
Many injuries can happen while fell running, including pulled calf muscles, knee pain, neck injuries, swollen knees, and many others. So ensuring you are protected by having medical insurance is an important part of planning your international trip. While many insurance companies charge extra to cover extreme sports, Atlas Travel insurance includes coverage for injuries that occur while fell running abroad at no additional charge. We offer several different Atlas Travel plans depending on your destination for fell running and how many are in your group. Atlas America® is designed for those whose travel includes the U.S. or Canada. If you are traveling outside of the U.S., we have Atlas International® insurance. Traveling with a group? If you have 5 or more in your group, you should check out Atlas Group® for a discounted rate!
Fell Running Locations
While you can technically fell run almost anywhere that an incline exists, most fell running takes place in the United Kingdom. If you are one of many needing fell running for beginners, here is a quick list of some famous places to go fell running:
- Ben Nevis - In the Scottish Highland, this mountain is the tallest mountain on the British Isle. Ben Nevis is commonly known to locals as “The Ben.” Fell running on Ben Nevis goes back to 1895 and each year Ben Nevis attracts an estimated 125,000 complete and 100,000 partial ascents per year by fell runners using the Mountain Track from Glen Nevis. Individuals can choose between two tracks as they explore the mountain. The Mountain Track is the most simple and popular route. The Mountain track starts at Achintee and ends up at the west flank of Ben Nevis.
- Snowdon - Located in Llanberis, Wales, this mountain peak is home to a five-mile path that leads to the top. Snowdon is contained within the Snowdonia National Park. In addition to containing the highest mountain in Wales, the park also contains the largest natural lake in Wales. Snowdonia’s website provides a great list of mountain safety advice and maps for beginners and intermediates looking to go fell running. If you are looking for a challenge in the Welsh countryside, then this might just be the one for you!
