California Triathlon is a California non-profit organization that provides clinics, skills camps, races (including those promoted as Grand Prix USA), and other activities for its members. Butterfly Endurance (dba Cal Tri Events) is a California non-profit organization that sponsors running, swimming, and bicycling events for California Triathlon members and for interested members of the general public. In this agreement, both organizations will hereafter be referred to as CAL TRI. Activities and events focus on the traditional triathlon events of running, swimming, and bicycling – some including all three activities, some two, and some, only one.
While there are many benefits to CAL TRI activities and events, it is very important that the PARTICIPANT/PARENT (which refers to either an ADULT Participant, OR a MINOR Participant and his/her PARENTS/GUARDIANS) understands that all physical activities include some inherent risks of injury; these inherent risks cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries. The inherent risks of each event will vary somewhat depending upon the activity site and the conditions at the time. Some examples of these inherent activity risks in running events include, but are not limited to, overexertion, heat related illness, slip & falls; trips on objects; collisions with other competitors, falls on pavement, and vehicle traffic on streets. Inherent risks in swimming events include, but are not limited to, overexertion, being caught in a current, getting cramps, being in deeper water than expected, being in murky water, turbulence, becoming chilled, encountering animals, and drowning. Inherent risks of bicycling events include, but are not limited to, heat related illness, falls, collisions with competitors or with moving or parked vehicles, being struck by a competitor’s bicycle or a motor vehicle, and bicycle malfunction. Other inherent risks include those related to nature including, but are not limited to, inclement weather (e.g. rain, snow, winds, lightning, sudden thunderstorm, extreme heat or cold); encountering insects or wild animals; variation in types of terrain; and risk of disease, including communicable diseases such as COVID-19, influenza, and other viral or bacterial infections. Risks related to participant and co-participants include, but are not limited to,erratic, careless, or negligent actions of co-participants or participant; errors of judgment or lack of attention of participant or co-participant. Risks related to CAL TRI personnel include, temporary distraction or inattention in monitoring the event, failure to anticipate a potential problem or correctable hazard, and other errors in judgment related to the site, the specific activity, and
selection/training of volunteers or staff.

CAL TRI feels it is important that the PARTICIPANT/PARENT understands that three kinds of injuries can occur:
common minor bodily injuries such as scratches, bruises, minor cuts, muscle pulls, muscle soreness, and sprains;
occasional major bodily injuries, including, but not limited to, shoulder pain, runner’s knee, swimmer’s knee, ankle, knee, and other joint injuries (e.g.,
tendon, ligament); broken bones; concussions, tendonitis, stress fractures);
3) rare catastrophic bodily injuries including, but not
limited to, injuries resulting in permanent disability, paralysis, heart attacks, and death.

ASSUMPTION OF INHERENT RISKS: I have read the above warning regarding the nature of CAL TRI activities and some
of their associated risks. I affirm that 1) I understand the demands of the activities relative to my physical condition and skill level, 2)
I understand the types of injuries that may occur as a result of CAL TRI activities and 3) I understand their potential impact on my
well-being, lifestyle, and potential future careers. I hereby assert that my participation is voluntary and that I knowingly assume
all inherent risks, both known and unknown.
