I acknowledge that this athletic event is an extreme test of a person’s physical and mental limits and carries with it the potential for death, serious injury, and property loss. The risks include, but are not limited to, those caused by terrain, facilities, temperature, weather, condition of athletes, equipment, vehicular traffic, actions of other people including, but not limited to, participants, volunteers, spectators, coaches, event officials, and event monitors, and/or producers of the event, and lack of hydration. These risks are not only inherent to athletics, but are also present for volunteers. I agree that prior to participating in an event, I will inspect the race course facilities, equipment and areas to be used and if I believe they are unsafe, I will immediately advise the person supervising the event activity, facility, or area. I hereby assume all of the risks of participating and/or volunteering in this event. I realize that liability may arise from negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons or entities being released, from dangerous or defective equipment or property owner, maintained or controlled by them or because of their possible liability without fault.
I certify that I am physically fit, have sufficiently trained for participation in the event and have not been advised otherwise by a qualified medical person.
I acknowledge that this Accident Waiver and Release Liability (AWRL) form will be used by the event holders, sponsors, and organizers in events in which I may participate and that it will govern my actions and responsibilities at said events.
In consideration of my application and permitting me to participate in this event, I, for myself, my executors, administrators, heirs, next-of-kin, successors, and assigns, forever waive and release and give up any and all claims, demands, liability, damages, costs, and expenses of any kind whatsoever, including personal injuries to me, or wrongful death, against the following entities or persons: (Sponsoring Organization), City of Alameda, its City Council, Boards and Commissions, Officers, Employees and Volunteers, City Hall, Alameda CA 94501, the event holders, event sponsors, event directors, event volunteers, and event officials which may arise from my participation in the event or while traveling to or from the event, even if caused in whole or in part by the negligence or fault of the parties or persons I am hereby releasing, by the dangerous or defective condition of any property or equipment owned, maintained or controlled by them and/or because of their liability without fault. I fully understand I am forever giving up in advance any right to sue or make any claim against the parties I am releasing if I suffer such injuries and damages, even though I do not know what or how extensive those injuries and damages might be, and am voluntarily assuming the risk of such injuries and damages.
I will assume my own medical and emergency expenses and hereby consent to receive medical treatment, which may be deemed advisable in the event of injury, accident, and/or illness during this event.
This AWRL shall be construed broadly to provide a release and waiver to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law.
By submitting this entry, I acknowledge (or a parent or adult guardian for all children under 18 years) having read and agreed to the above release and waiver including the no refund policy.
