  ACTIVE Network Launches Race Registration Insurance With Allianz Global

    Participants Can Rest Easy Knowing Their Registration is Insured With
                           ‘Registration Protector’

SAN DIEGO & RICHMOND, Va. -- November 26, 2012

Roughly 15% of race registrants never even make it to the starting line^1.
ACTIVE Network, the leader in cloud-based Activity and Participant Management™
(APM), and Allianz Global Assistance USA, a leader in consumer specialty
insurance, are partnering to provide event organizers and participants peace
of mind by protecting registration fees for both parties when participants
can’t show up on race day with ‘Registration Protector’.

“Registering for an event in advance may seem more appealing to a participant
if they know that a sprained ankle won’t jeopardize their registration fee,”
said Eric McCue, general manager of sports at ACTIVE Network. “For event
organizers, Registration Protector solves an important customer service issue
by making refunds available to participants without the need for organizers to
manage or pay those refunds. Allianz Global Assistance was an obvious partner
for us to help roll out this robust insurance plan to our customers because of
their technical sophistication and impeccable reputation.”

Registration Protector is a new benefit to all customers who sign
up for events online. During registration, participants will be provided with
the option to purchase Registration Protector. With Registration Protector, a
participant who misses an event for a covered reason such as an injury,
illness, job loss, transportation delays, military/family/legal obligations,
and more can get their registration fees reimbursed.*

“It appears to be a win-win situation for both event organizers and
participants,” said Sally Smith of Big Sur Marathon Events. “The covered
reasons are very robust, much more so than other plans we’ve looked at. We
also like the fact that the participant deals directly with Allianz Global
Assistance. An event director won’t have to spend time explaining, arguing or
upsetting participants who ask for a refund, nor will they have to deal with
the refund process.”

Registration Protector will refund 100% of insured registration costs, subject
to certain conditions and limitations, including fees and other related costs
up to the maximum coverage amount of $10,000 and includes Allianz Global
Assistance’s 24/7 service and assistance. Allianz Global Assistance manages
all customer service and claims activity, without risk or management resources
from event organizers.

“We’re pleased to be partnering with ACTIVE Network to offer event
participants and organizers the tremendous benefits that Registration
Protector has to offer,” said Mike Nelson, CEO of Allianz Global Assistance
USA. “Every year, we provide great coverage and outstanding 24/7/365 service
and assistance to 13 million customers. We’re happy to be able to offer this
coverage, service and peace of mind to ACTIVE Network customers and partners.”

*Conditions, limitations and exclusions apply. For a complete description of
the coverage, carefully review the terms and conditions of the certificate of
insurance. Insurance coverage is underwritten by BCS Insurance Company (OH,
Administrative Office: Oakwood Terrace, Ill), or Jefferson Insurance Company
(NY, Administrative Office: Richmond, VA), depending on the insured's state.
Allianz Global Assistance and Allianz Travel Insurance are brands of AGA
Service Company. AGA Service Company is the licensed producer and
administrator of this plan and an affiliate of Jefferson Insurance Company.
The insured shall not receive any special benefit or advantage because of the
affiliation between AGA Service Company and Jefferson Insurance Company.
