主办方将与独立承包商(包括个人或组织)签订合同,由其提供部分赛事服务和引导参赛者进行活动。本人知晓主办方无义务监管和控制该等独立承包商,主办方不会对独立承包商的行为承担法律责任。此外,活动的场地和设施并非由主办方所拥有或控制,主办方不会监控该等场地和设施的状况,也不对因该等场地和设施产生的损害承担责任。

本协议中的信息并不能穷尽所有的问题和风险,除此之外,仍可能存在其他未知或不可预料的活动、风险和问题,而且主办方不能保证本人(或本人的子女,如适用)的安全或是消除上述任何风险。本人理解,如本人对活动或其风险有进一步的问题本人可以咨询主办方的工作人员。

本人(或本人的子女,如适用)自愿参加本项赛事,在参加赛事及相关活动之前,已充分了解所有风险。因此,本人(或本人的子女,如适用)在此声明:本人同意并接受赛事内在和外在的风险(已知或未知的),并对该等风险对本人或他人造成的任何伤害、损害、死亡或其他损失自行承担全部责任。

INTRODUCTION

Please read this entire Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks & Release and Indemnity Agreement (hereafter “Form”) carefully before signing.  Each participant, and if the participant has not attained the legal age of majority, a parent/natural guardian/legal guardian of the minor participant (minors are those under 18 yrs. of age), must sign this Form.  The participant or, if applicable, the participant’s parent/natural guardian/legal guardian, is referred to herein as “I” or “my”.  I acknowledge that I have legal authority to act on behalf of myself, or if the participant is a minor that I have the legal authority to act for the minor on his/her behalf, and that the child is under 18 years of age.  In consideration of the services of Competitor Group, Inc.t Co. Ltd. and its related parties, in allowing me/my child to participate in the Operator competitive event and other activities (hereafter “Event”), I acknowledge and agree as follows:  

ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND ASSUMPTION OF RISKS

This Event and other activities that I (or my child, as applicable) may participate in and/or assist with as a volunteer (whether simply attending, assisting, observing or actively participating) may take place indoors or outdoors and can include but not be limited to: warm-up exercises; competitive running and/or walking, both in practice and in the Event; demo-ing (trying out) gear; participation in clinics, training, demonstrations or other games and activities, attendance at any activities, use of and/or assistance with any equipment, facilities or premises and traveling in planes, vans, buses or other vehicles to and from activities (this Event and other activities collectively referred to in this Form as “activities” or “activity”).  Activities may be scheduled or unscheduled, mandatory or optional, whether or not authorized and/or conducted by Operator, structured or unstructured and include free time.  I acknowledge that the inherent and other risks, hazards and dangers (collectively referred to in this Form as “risks”) of these activities can cause injury, damage, death or other loss to me, my child or others.  I give permission for my child to participate in and/or assist with all Operator activities and agree to discuss this Form, and specifically, the activities and inherent risks, with my child.  The following describes some, but not all of the inherent risks, as applicable to participant’s activities: 

Risks in any competitive or athletic activity.  Training for, practicing or competing in endurance or other events and associated with running and other conditioning involves frequent and repetitive use of the arms and legs, extreme fitness and endurance, and pushing the limits of the participant’s speed and abilities.

Risks present in an outdoor environment.  Participants may be subject to: high altitude or mountainous terrain; severe storms or bad weather such as lightning, strong winds, rain, hail, snow and ice; extremely hot or cold weather; stinging, venomous and/or disease carrying animals or insects and other natural or man-made hazards. Hazards may not be marked or visible and weather is always unpredictable.

Risks involved in decision making and conduct.  These risks include the risk that an Operator staff member, representative, volunteer, contractor, or co-participant may misjudge a participant’s capabilities, health, or physical condition, misjudge some aspect of instruction, medical treatment, weather, terrain, or route location, or, that one of those persons may not warn participant (and/or participant’s legal guardian) about one or more of the inherent risks of these activities.

Running risks. These risks include the risk of losing control and falling to the ground, colliding with objects or people (including co-participants, volunteers, or spectators) on land, tripping or falling down, or encountering other road/trail hazards.

Personal health and participation risks.  The risk that a participant’s mental, physical or emotional condition (including any use or abuse of alcohol or prescription or non-prescription drugs), whether disclosed or undisclosed, known or unknown, combined with participation in these activities could result in injury, damage, death or other loss.  Although Operator may review participant’s medical information, submitted in the registration process, Operator cannot anticipate or eliminate risks or complications posed by a participant’s mental, physical (including fitness level) or emotional condition.

Risks connected with location. Activity location may cause or contribute to delays or difficulties in communication, transportation, evacuation or medical care.  

Risks associated with premises.  Ruts, holes, rocks, uneven ground or other conditions may exist in and around the activities.  

Supervision and activities risks.  I understand that neither Operator nor any of their staff, representatives, volunteers, contractors or anyone associated with them will be supervising participant during the activities or at any time.  Adult participant agrees he/she is solely responsible for his/her own well-being at all times; or, if applicable, a participant’s legal guardian agrees to take sole responsibility for participant’s supervision before, during and after the Event and other activities, including during free time and at all other times.

Risks regarding conduct.  The potential that participant, co-participant/s and/or third party/s may act in a negligent or intentional manner.

Drone risks.  I understand that unmanned aerial vehicles (“UAVs”, also known as “drones”) may be used at the Event for media or other purposes and accept the risk of a collision with, and any damage or injury relating to, any UAV.

Risk regarding criminal/terrorist activity. The potential that third party/s may commit criminal acts or acts of terrorism. 

These and other risks may result in participants or an attending parent: falling partway or falling to the ground; being struck; colliding with objects (e.g., a UAV) or people; experiencing bicycle or vehicle collision or rollover; reacting to high altitudes, weather conditions or increased exertion; becoming lost or disoriented; suffering gastro-intestinal complications or allergic reactions or experiencing other problems. These and other circumstances may cause heat or cold related illnesses or conditions (including hypothermia, frostbite, hyperthermia, or heat exhaustion/stroke); dehydration; hyponatremia; high altitude sickness; heart or lung complications; broken bones; paralysis or other permanent disability; mental or emotional trauma; concussions; sunburn or other burns or other injury, damage, death or loss -- before, during or even after the participant participates in the Event or other activities.

I understand and agree:  

· I (together with my child, as applicable) will review all materials received, accurately complete and agree to the registration information, documents and process, and obey all rules and policies.  These rules and policies include USA Track & Field (“USATF”) Competitive Rules (including USATF’s Doping Control Rules), Operator’s Competition Rules (including Operator’s Doping Control Rules), as the foregoing may be amended, and all traffic laws;   

· My (or my child’s, as applicable) final acceptance and participation in the Event is contingent upon Operator’s receipt and review of all required information and forms, including this Form;

· before participating in any activities, I (and my child, if applicable) may inspect the race course, facilities, equipment, and areas to be used, if my child and I choose. I will immediately advise Operator or an Event official if I believe or become aware that the race course facilities, equipment or areas to be used in the Event are unsafe;

· I am (or my child is, as applicable) fully capable of participating without causing harm to himself or herself or others.  I further agree that participating in these activities requires extreme fitness and endurance, that I, in conjunction with my (or my child’s, if applicable) physician, am responsible for determining whether these activities are appropriate for myself (or my child, as applicable), before participation;

· Operator contracts with individuals or organizations that are independent contractors (not its employees or agents) to provide some of the Event services and to conduct some of the activities participants will engage in. I acknowledge that Operator does not supervise or control these independent contractors and is not legally liable or responsible for their conduct. In addition, activities take place on premises or at facilities not owned or controlled by Operator, and Operator does not oversee or take responsibility for any aspect or condition of these independent facilities or premises;  

· the information provided in this Form is not exhaustive, other unknown or unanticipated activities, inherent or other risks and outcomes may exist, and Operator cannot assure my (and my child’s, if applicable) safety or eliminate any of the risks. I understand I can and should consult Operator representatives if I have further questions about the activities or the associated risks;

· I am (or my child is) voluntarily participating, and I (and my child) acknowledge the inherent risks in connection with the activities. Therefore, I agree that I (and my child, if applicable) assume and accept full responsibility for the participant, for the inherent and other risks (both known and unknown) of the activities, and for any injury, damage, death or other loss suffered by me or my child, resulting from those inherent and other risks, including but not limited to the risk of my, my child’s (if applicable), a co-participant’s, a Released Party’s, a spectator’s, a volunteer’s, and/or a third party’s passive or active negligence or intentional or other misconduct.

RELEASE AND INDEMNITY

Please read Parts A and B carefully. This Release and Indemnity section contains a surrender of certain legal rights.  

Part A:  To the extent allowed by applicable law, I for myself (and also for my child participant, if applicable), agree as follows:

· to release and not to sue Event sponsors, Event organizers, Event promoters, Event producers, race directors, Event officials, Event staff, advertisers, administrators, contractors, vendors, volunteers, and all property owners and state, city, town, county, and other governmental bodies, and/or municipal agencies whose property and/or personnel are used and/or in any way assist in locations where the activities take place, and each of their respective parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies, assignees, licensees, owners, officers, directors, partners, board members, shareholders, members, supervisors, insurers, agents, employees, volunteers, contractors and representatives and all other persons or entities associated or involved with the activities (individually and collectively referred to in this Form as the “Released Party” and "Released Parties"), with respect to any and all claims, liabilities, suits or expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs) (collectively referred to in this Form as “claim” or “claim/s”) that I may have, for any injury, damage, death, lost property, stolen property, or other loss in any way connected with my (or my child’s) enrollment or participation in and/or assistance with the activities, including use of and/or assistance with any equipment, facilities or premises, howsoever caused; negligence, whether passive or active, of the Released Parties; any breach by the Released Parties of statutory duty; and/or losses resulting from the inherent or other risks of the activities. I understand I agree here to waive all claim/s I may have (for myself and my child) against the Released Parties and agree that neither I, nor my estate, heirs, assigns or beneficiaries nor anyone else acting on my behalf, will make a claim against the Released Parties for any loss I may suffer, if I (or my child) suffer injury, damage, death or other loss; to defend and indemnify (“indemnify” meaning protect by reimbursement or payment) the Released Parties with respect to any and all claim/s brought by or on behalf of me, (my participating child) or other family member/s, a co-participant or any other person, for any injury, damage, death, lost and/or stolen property or other loss in any way connected with my, or my child’s, enrollment or participation in and/or assistance with the activities, including without limitation use of and/or assistance with any equipment, facilities or premises, howsoever caused; negligence, whether passive or active, of the Released Parties; any breach by the Released Parties of statutory duty; and/or losses resulting from the inherent or other risks of the activities.  

This Release and Indemnity section Part A includes but is not limited to claim/s for personal injury or wrongful death (including claim/s related to emergency, medical, drug and/or health issues, response, assessment or treatment), property damage, loss of consortium, breach of contract or any other claim, including claim/s resulting from the negligence of Released Parties, whether passive or active.

Part B:  If the participant is a minor, I (the minor participant’s parent) for and on behalf of my participating minor child, agree as follows: I agree here to waive and release, in advance, any claim or cause of action against the Released Parties that would accrue to my minor child for personal injury, including death, and property damage resulting from an inherent risk in the activity.  

NOTICE TO THE MINOR CHILD'S NATURAL GUARDIAN

READ THIS FORM COMPLETELY AND CAREFULLY.  YOU ARE AGREEING TO LET YOUR MINOR CHILD ENGAGE IN A POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS ACTIVITY.  YOU ARE AGREEING THAT, EVEN IF THE RELEASED PARTIES USE REASONABLE CARE IN PROVIDING THIS ACTIVITY, THERE IS A CHANCE YOUR CHILD MAY BE SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED BY PARTICIPATING IN THIS ACTIVITY BECAUSE THERE ARE CERTAIN DANGERS INHERENT IN THE ACTIVITY WHICH CANNOT BE AVOIDED OR ELIMINATED.  BY SIGNING THIS FORM YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR CHILD'S RIGHT AND YOUR RIGHT TO RECOVER FROM THE RELEASED PARTIES IN A LAWSUIT FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURY, INCLUDING DEATH, TO YOUR CHILD OR ANY PROPERTY DAMAGE THAT RESULTS FROM THE RISKS THAT ARE A NATURAL PART OF THE ACTIVITY. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO SIGN THIS FORM, AND THE RELEASED PARTIES HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO LET YOUR CHILD PARTICIPATE IF YOU DO NOT SIGN THIS FORM.  

To the extent allowed by applicable law, I agree to indemnify the Released Parties for any attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by them in defending a claim or suit brought by or on behalf of my child (whether that claim or suit is initiated by me, my child or another party) that an arbitrator or court determines is barred under applicable law, or, if the claim is withdrawn or dismissed.

OTHER PROVISIONS

I understand and agree:

· Any dispute or claim/s I (or my child) may have arising out of, relating to or in connection with this Form, my (or my child’s) enrollment or participation in the activities, or any other aspect of my (or my child’s) relationship with Operator: 1) will be governed by Florida substantive law (without regard to its “conflict of law” rules) and 2) unless settled by direct discussions, will be determined by binding arbitration as the sole and final remedy for all matters in dispute, administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with applicable Arbitration Rules as interpreted and governed by the Florida Arbitration Code.  AAA arbitrator/s knowledgeable in the field and in commercial matters, acceptable to both the participant and Operator, will conduct the arbitration.  Required Venue:  I agree that any arbitration proceeding, or any suit or other proceeding must be filed, entered into and/or take place only in Tampa, Florida.  

· If I am signing as the participant’s legal guardian, I have the legal authority to act for the participant and on his/her behalf.  If my guardian status is challenged or found invalid, I will release, agree to defend and indemnify, and not to sue any of, the Released Parties, to the fullest extent allowed by law and per the provisions of this Form, just as if I were the participant’s lawful guardian. 

· In regard to my or my child’s relationship with Operator, I agree that the contents of this Form will take precedence over any other forms or contracts I or my child may sign (for parties other than Operator) in connection with these activities.
