I know that running/walking a race is a potentially hazardous activity. I should not enter and run the 2017 Half Marathon, 5K, or Kids Fun Run unless I am medically able and properly trained. I agree to abide by any decision of a race official relative to my ability to safely complete the run. I assume all risks associated with participating in the event, including, but not limited to, falls, contact with other participants, walkers, baby strollers or "baby-joggers", in-line skating, dogs on leashes, bicycles, the effects of the weather, including high heat and/or humidity, rain, traffic and the conditions of the road, all such risks being known and appreciated by me. I hereby consent to receive medical attention, which may be deemed advisable in the event of an injury, accident and/or illness during this event. I understand that all evacuation and medical costs for participants and volunteers will be borne by that person or their heirs. Chosen, ABBA Fund, city officials and the race organizers and sponsors are in no way liable or responsible for medical costs or emergency evacuation.
Having read this waiver and knowing these facts, and in consideration of your accepting my entry, I hereby for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators or anyone else who might claim on my behalf, waive and release any and all organizers, sponsors, their representatives and successors, the city of New Braunfels, the county of Comal, the Summit Resort, race officials and race volunteers from all claims or liability for death, personal injury, or property damage of any kind or nature whatsoever arising out of, or in the course of, my participating in this event whether same be caused by negligence or fault. This release and waiver extends to all claims of every kind or nature whatsoever, foreseen or unforeseen, known or unknown. I also give Chosen and their parent company, ABBA Fund, permission to use any race day photographs or video footage of me for select promotional purposes. This also includes any photo shoots before or after race day.
If my child is participating in the Kids Fun Run, I understand that all above waiver criteria applies to him and/or her, as well, and I release Chosen and related officials from liability.
If I am part of a team whose adoption does not come to completion, I agree that my registration funds will be funneled to the General Fund, which benefits multiple adoptive families.
