IN CONSIDERATION of Cullman County, allowing me to participate in the Sportsman Lake Park Glow Run 5K, hereinafter referred to as “Run”, I, for myself, and on behalf of my spouse, children, parents, guardians, heirs and next of kin, and any legal and personal representative, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns, do hereby agree to and make the following contractual representations pursuant to this Waiver and Release of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement, hereinafter referred to as “Agreement”;
1. I hereby represent that (i) I am in good health and in proper physical condition to participate in the activities in which the Run provides; and (ii) I am not under the influence of alcohol or any illicit or prescription drugs which would in any way impair my ability to safely participate in Run; (iii) I have not been advised against activities by a health professional. I agree that it is my sole responsibility to determine whether I am sufficiently fit and healthy enough to participate in activities.
2. I understand and acknowledge the physical and mental rigors associated with the activities in which the Run provides and realize that such activities are inherently dangerous and represent an extreme test of a person’s physical and mental limits. I understand that participation involves risks and dangers which include, without limitation the potential for serious bodily injury, sickness and disease, permanent disability, paralysis and loss of life; loss of or damage to equipment/property; exposure to extreme conditions and circumstances; accidents, contact or collision with others, spectators, vehicles or other natural or manmade objects; dangers arising from adverse weather conditions; water, road and surface hazards; equipment failure, inadequate safety measures; participants of varying skill levels; situation beyond the immediate control of the Run; and other undefined risks and dangers which may not be readily foreseeable or are presently unknown. I understand that these Risks may be caused in whole or in part by my own actions or inactions, the actions or inactions of other participating in activities, or the acts, inaction or negligence of the Released Parties defined below, and I hereby expressly assume all such Risks and responsibility for any damage, liabilities, losses or expenses which I incur as a result of my participation in activities.
3. I agree to be familiar with and to abide by the Rules, Regulations, and laws established which include without limitation the rules of operation and warning guidelines of equipment used in said Run, Run rules and warnings, and local, state, and federal laws. I also accept sole responsibility for my own conduct and actions while participating in the activities, and the condition and adequacy of my equipment.
4. I hereby grant full permission to Cullman County and/or any and all agents authorized by them to use any photographs, videotapes, motion pictures, recording and any other record of activity or events for any legitimate purpose.
5. I hereby Release, Waive, and Covenant Not to Sue, and further agree to Indemnify, Defend and Hold Harmless the following parties: Cullman County, Cullman County Commission, their Insurers, Promoters, Run Directors, Sponsors, Advertisers, Law Enforcement Agencies and other Public Entities providing support for the activities, and each of their respective parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies, officers, directors, partners, shareholders, members, agents, employees, representatives, and volunteers (Individually and Collectively, the “Released Parties”), with respect to any liability, claim(s), demand(s), cause(s) of action, damage(s), loss or expense (including court costs and attorneys fees) of any kind or nature (“Liability”) which may rise out of, or relate to my participation in the activities, including claims for Liability caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the Released Parties. I further agree that if, despite this Agreement, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim for Liability against any of the Released Parties, I will indemnify, defend and hold harmless each of the Released Parties from any such Liability which any may be incurred as a result of such claim.
6. I hereby warrant that I have read this Agreement carefully, understand its terms and conditions, acknowledge that I will be giving up substantial legal rights by signing it (including the rights of the minor, my spouse, children, parents, guardians, heirs and next of kin, and any legal and personal representatives, executors, administrators, successors and assigns), acknowledge that I have signed this Agreement freely and voluntarily, without any inducement, assurance or guarantee, and intend for my signature to serve as confirmation of my complete and unconditional acceptance of the terms, conditions and provisions of this Agreement. This Agreement represents the complete understanding between the parties regarding these issues and no oral representations, statements or inducements have been made apart from this Agreement. My signature is relied on by the Released Parties for the engagement in the Run. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. This Agreement is intended to be as broad as Alabama laws allow.
This Waiver of Legal Rights and Release of Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity Agreement is in effect from the date of signing and is continuing in nature.
All registrants have read, do understand, and agreed to this waiver.
