TicketGuardian – new for 2019 

New for our 2019 event, we’ve partnered with TicketGuardian to bring our participants attendee registration protection. We now offer optional consumer protection on all Canada Army Run registrations.

What is TicketGuardian?

TicketGuardian Registration Protection gives participants an opportunity to get reimbursed for up to 100% of their entry fees if they cannot attend Canada Army Run for one of several qualifying reasons.

What does it cover?

Canada Army Run participants who opt for the optional Registration Protection offered by TicketGuardian may be eligible for reimbursement in the following most common situations:

  • Illness or serious injury
  • Employer termination
  • Traffic accidents
  • Mechanical breakdown
  • Carrier delay
  • Jury duty
  • Military duty

How do I purchase Attendee Insurance for my registration?

Canada Army Run provides registrants with the option of purchasing protection for their registration. You will be able to purchase coverage when registering using the Race Roster online platform.

How do I make a claim?

If you are eligible to make a claim on TicketGuardian’s registration protection, visit https://tg-claims.ticketguardian.net and fill out the on-line claim submission form.

Are transfers of the registration coverage allowable?

No, the coverage is associated with the individual purchaser.

What is covered under TicketGuardian?

  • Sales tax
  • Processing fees
  • Shirts or other giveaways
  • Dinners

How is the fee charged for coverage determined?

The total premium fee is dependent upon the registration value. For example, if your registration fees total $100, the premium will cost you 6.5% of the total, so $6.50 in this example.

The coverage protects the consumer’s entire purchase and TicketGuardian will reimburse them for the entire experience, to include the sales tax and the registration fee, should the attendee have a valid, covered reason to not attend.

Let’s look at an example with some round numbers:

$100 registration
$20 shirt
$10 meal
$10 insurance*
Total:  $140
$9.80 in taxes
Total Transaction value: $149.80

In the case above, the consumer will be reimbursed for $139.80

*TicketGuardian is a part of the cart value and subject to tax. The insurance premium and tax on that amount are not refundable. 

What is protected?

The total amount included in the registration order will be covered by TicketGuardian, less the cost of the coverage premium. 

Are donations protected?

No. Donations are non-refundable. This is set out in the registration policy. If a participant wishes to request a refund on a donation, they must contact the charity itself directly as official tax receipts have been issued and only the charity can issue donation refunds as per government guidelines.

Introduced in 2016, the Commander’s Challenge is an event within Canada Army Run where participants run, walk or roll officially in BOTH the 5K and half marathon events.
