I have read this Release carefully before signing, and I understand what it means and what I am agreeing to by signing. In consideration of the acceptance of my application for entry or participation in this Event by one or more Releasees, I hereby freely agree to and make the following additional contractual representations and agreements: 1.

I am aware of and appreciate all of these risks. I understand that both vehicle traffic and spectators will be present along the race course and that police protection will not be provided.

As a condition of my participation, I agree to abide by all traffic and pedestrian laws and regulations and to follow any and all ofReleasees’ safety instructions, including all rules and conditions set forth.

I agree to abide by any decision of a race official relative to my ability to safely complete this swim and/or road race and I further agree that race officials may authorize necessary emergency treatment for me. 4. Having read this Release and knowing and assuming these risks, and in consideration of the acceptance of my participation, I hereby for myself, my heirs, my executors, administrators or anyone else who might claim on their own behalf or my behalf (collectively my “Successors”), covenant not to sue, and FOREVER WAIVE, RELEASE, DISCHARGE, and HOLD HARMLESSReleasees from any and all claims or liability of any kind or nature whatsoever arising out of or related to my participation in this Event, even though such liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of Releasees. 5. In exchange for my being permitted to participate in the Event, and understanding there will be no additional compensation to me, I hereby authorize Goliath Relay, to use my image or likeness for race promotional purposes. I understand the race registration fees are nonrefundable. I have read the race rules and agree to abide by the rules and conditions contained therein. 6. I acknowledge and agree, for myself and my Successors, that the above representations are contractually binding, and are not mere recitals, and that should I or my Successors assert a claim contrary to what I have agreed to in this Release, the claiming party shall be liable for the expenses (including legal fees) incurred by the Releasees in defending such claim. This Release may not be modified orally, and a waiver or modification of any provision shall not be construed as a waiver or modification of any other provision herein or as consent to any subsequent waiver or modification. I consent to the release by any third party to Releasees and their insurance carriers of my name and medical information that may relate to any injury or death I may suffer arising from my participation in the Event. Every term and provision of this Release is intended to be severable. If any one or more of them is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that shall not affect the other terms and provisions, which shall remain binding and enforceable. 7. I acknowledge and agree that there are no refunds if the race is cancelled or delayed due to causes beyond Releasees’ control, including but not limited to, acts of God, war, strikes or labor disputes, fires, riots, terrorism, vandalism, accident, government orders, certain severe weather conditions such as severe heat, electrical storm, snowfall, tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding, fog, severe weather conditions where significant damage or altercations to the race course occur, or any other force or event.
