THIS IS AN IMPORTANT DOCUMENT. IT REQUIRES YOU TO GIVE UP LEGAL RIGHTS. READ IT BEFORE SIGNING. IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS DOCUMENT, DO NOT SIGN IT.
In consideration of the acceptance of my application to participate in the Pet Friends 5K Run/Walk to be held on the date identified in this registration form (the “Run”), I freely give this RELEASE and make the following contractual representations and agreements. I hereby RELEASE, hold harmless, indemnify, and agree not to sue Graniterock Company and their respective agents, officers, directors, employees, members, sponsors, promoters, affiliates and all volunteers helping with the Run (collectively called the “RELEASEES”) from all liability resulting from all injuries (including death) resulting from or in connection with my participation (or the participation of a minor on whose behalf I am signing this document) in the Run. This RELEASE applies even to injury or death caused by THE RELEASEES’ OWN NEGLIGENCE. I understand that running is an inherently dangerous sport and fully realize the dangers of participating, and FULLY ASSUME ALL RISKS associated with participating, including, by way of example and not limitation, the danger of collision with pedestrians, vehicles, other runners, and fixed or mobile objects; the dangers arising from rocks, obstacles, and other hazards on or near the running surface, particularly in an industrial environment such as the route chosen for the Run; equipment failure and inadequate safety equipment or warnings; adverse weather conditions; insect or animal encounters; and the possibility for serious physical or mental trauma, injury or death associated with running. This RELEASE includes all such risks and claims. I attest that I, and any participating minors on whose behalf I am signing this document, are physically fit and have sufficiently trained for the Run. I agree that the above representations and acknowledgments are contractually binding and not mere recitals. I make this RELEASE, and all representations, agreements and acknowledgements contained herein for myself, my heirs, executors, administrator, legal representatives, successors in interest, and any participating minors for whom I am signing this document. I acknowledge this document must be signed by a legal guardian of any minor participating in the Run. I represent that I am the legal guardian of the minor(s) listed below, and that I am fully authorized to and hereby do sign this RELEASE on behalf of these minors.
