ATRA Adds Member Benefit
Partnership with Outdoor Recreation Insurance

Colorado Springs, CO ---- The American Trail Running Association has partnered with Outdoor Recreation Insurance to offer a new member benefit – accident coverage for its members.
“We’re thrilled to lend support to ATRA and to the rapidly growing community of off-road runners. Trail and mountain runners face inherent risks that aren’t always obvious. Outdoor Recreation Insurance (ORI) provides affordable accident coverage that softens the landing when the trail suddenly takes a nasty turn,” says, ORI’s Tad Linn.
The personal trail running accident coverage is priced at $85 per year under the ATRA group policy. (Coverage includes additional mountain activities). ORI accident benefits are paid directly to the injured person. If an individual has health insurance, ORI’s cash accident benefits can be used to pay deductibles, co-insurance amounts and other flat-fee copayments. If an individual does not have health insurance, ORI coverage may still be purchased for the same price using the cash benefits to pay medical bills directly. All benefits are paid on a cost-incurred basis. When purchasing, the ATRA member will be asked to provide an ATRA member number, which is simply the individual’s primary 10-digit phone number.
