I know that participation in a road race is a potentially hazardous activity and involves a risk of injury, including bodily injury. Upon signing this Waiver and Release and thereafter, I agree that my participation at the Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairment’s Run for Sight is at my own risk, and I assume the risk of any and all injury and/or damage I might sustain, regardless of whether I am a participant, a spectator, a volunteer or otherwise. I agree that I am voluntarily participating in the aforementioned activity and assume all risk, known and unknown, associated with the same, including but not limited to falls, contact with other participants, the effects of weather conditions (including extreme temperatures or precipitation), traffic or road conditions.
This year, COVID-19 has been declared a worldwide pandemic and is reported to be extremely contagious, believed to be spread from person-to-person contact, contaminated surfaces, and even the air. The medical knowledge is evolving and the exact methods of spread and contraction are not completely known. Evidence has shown that COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illness and even death. I understand that the Delta Gamma Center cannot prevent me from being exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while participating, volunteering or otherwise at Run for Sight. It is not possible to prevent against the presence of the disease. I have read and understand the above warning concerning COVID-19. I hereby accept the risk.
In consideration of accepting this entry, I, the undersigned, intending to be legally bound, hereby, for myself, and my minor children, waive and release any and all claims for damages, demands, actions and causes of actions against Delta Gamma Center or Big River Race Management, their affiliates, subsidiaries, officials, representatives, employees, successors and assigns for any and all injuries suffered by me in this event including exposure, infection, and/or spread of COVID-19. Further, I hereby grant full permission for the free use of my name and/or any photographs, videotapes, motion pictures, recordings, or any other record of this event for any legitimate purpose.
I acknowledge that I have carefully read this waiver & release. I fully understand that it is a release of liability, and that I expressly assume the risk of participation. I am aware and agree that by executing this
waiver & release, I am giving up my right to bring a legal action or assert a claim against the Delta Gamma Center for myself and my spouse, children, successors, heirs and assigns. Should I or my successors assert any claim in contravention of this waiver and release, the asserting party shall be liable for the expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by the Delta Gamma Center or parties in defending against any such action.
A signed waiver is required for every participant with a paid or free registration including children of all ages. By signing below you signify your understanding, acceptance, and authorization to accept the conditions
