I know that running and/or volunteering for a road race is potentially hazardous activity, which could cause injury or death. I will not enter and participate unless I am medically able and properly trained, and by my signature, I certify that I am medically able to perform this event, and am in good health, and I am properly trained. I agree to abide by any decision of a race official relative to any aspect of my participation in this event, including the right of any official to deny or suspend my participation for any reason whatsoever. I attest that I have read the rules of the race and agree to abide by them. I assume all risks associated with running in this event, including but no limited to: falls, contact with other participants, dog bites, the effects of the weather, including cold temperatures, snowy and/or icy conditions, traffic and the conditions of the road, all such risks being known and appreciated by me. I understand that bicycles, skateboards, roller skates or roller blades, animals, and personal music players are not allowed in the race and I will abide by all race rules. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts and inconsideration of your accepting my entry, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the A Christmas Story Run, the City of Cleveland, the neighborhood of Tremont, A Christmas Story House and Museum, RoadRunner Enterprises 100 LLC, Lumen Group Inc. and the Road Runners Club of America, all event sponsors, their representatives and successors from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in this event, even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons named in this waiver. I grant permission to all of the foregoing to use my photographs, audio and/or video recordings or any other record of this event for any legitimate purpose.
If I have dutifully registered my dog to participate with me I also agree that I RELEASE, WAIVE, DISCHARGE AND COVENANT NOT TO HOLD RESPONSIBLE any of the above named parties (referred to as Releasees) their officers, agents, servants, or employees from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions, including court costs and attorney fees, and causes of action whatsoever arising out of or related to any loss, damage, or injury, including death, that may be sustained by me, or any of the property belonging to me, including my dog. I VOLUNTARILY ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RISKS OF LOSS, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY, INCLUDING DEATH, of other event participants that may be caused by my dog or as a result of the presence of my dog, WHETHER CAUSED BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE.
