In consideration of the acceptance of my application for entry in the Intrepid Race and related activities (the “Event”) conducted or organized by Intrepid LLC (the “Organizer”), I hereby freely agree to make the following contractual representations and agreements. I understand that I should not register for or attend the Event if I have any objections to the following terms and conditions.
I acknowledge, appreciate and agree that the the risk of injury and/or death from the activities involved in the Event is significant, including, but not limited to the following: (i) fractures; (ii) heart attack; (iii) head trauma; (iv) collision or entanglement with pedestrians, vehicles, wildlife, or other racers; (v) animal attacks; (vi) hypothermia; (vii) mental trauma; (viii) equipment failure; and (iv) the potential for permanent paralysis and/or death.
AFTER AN OPPORTUNITY TO FULLY INFORM MYSELF ABOUT THE EVENT, I KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME AND ACCEPT ALL SUCH RISKS, BOTH KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, and assume full responsibility and all risks for my participation in the Event.
I, for myself, my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors, and assigns, forever WAIVE, RELEASE, DISCHARGE AND PROMISE NOT TO SUE the Organizer and/or its directors, officers, employees, volunteers, representatives, and agents, Event sponsors, Event volunteers, law enforcement and all other public entities involved in the Event, and private property owners or special districts through whose property the Event may be held (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any and all liability, including but not limited to, liability arising from the negligence or fault of the Releasees, for my death, disability, personal injury, property damage, property theft, or actions of any kind which may hereafter occur to me during the Event or during my travels to and from the Event. I further agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Releasees from any loss, liability, cost, claim or damages arising from my participation in or association with the Event. Under no circumstances will the Releasees be held liable for my injury or death or any loss or damage of my personal belongings resulting from my participation in the Event.
Should I require emergency medical treatment as a result of accident or illness arising during my attendance and participation in the Event, I consent to such treatment. I acknowledge and I agree to be financially responsible for any medical or other bills that may be incurred as a result of emergency medical treatment; however, I understand that the Releasees are not legally obligated to provide any medical service whatsoever to me. I also acknowledge and assume the risk that I may become injured or incapacitated in a location where it is difficult or impossible for me to receive medical aid in time to avoid further physical injury or even death.
I understand and agree that situations may arise during the race which may be beyond the immediate control of the Releasees. I accept responsibility for the conditions and adequacy of my equipment and training. I have no physical or mental condition which, to my knowledge, would endanger myself or others if I participate in the Event, or would interfere with my ability to participate in the Event.
I agree it is my sole responsibility to be familiar with the race course, the rules of the Organizer, and the special regulations of the Event. I agree that it is at the sole discretion of the Organizer to change the rules at any time in the interest of safety and sportsmanship or for any reason deemed appropriate by the Organizer, and I agree to abide by those rules. I understand that the Organizer may postpone, cancel, or modify the Event or remove any participant from the Event in the interest of the community, law, safety, time, sportsmanship, acts of nature or any other reason deemed appropriate by the Organizer, in its sole discretion. No refunds will be granted.
I agree, for myself and my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors, and assigns that the above representations are contractually binding, and are not mere recitals, and that should I or any of my successors assert any claim in contravention of this agreement, I or my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors, and assigns shall be liable for the expenses (including legal fees) incurred by the other party or parties in defending such a claim.
I hereby grant permission for the free use of my name, any photos, videotapes, recordings or any other record of me for any purpose without limitation or compensation.
I HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT, FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS TERMS, UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS BY SIGNING IT BELOW, AND SIGN IT FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY WITHOUT ANY INDUCEMENT.
