I know that hiking up a volcano is a potentially hazardous activity. I should not enter and hike unless I am medically able to do so and properly trained. I assume all risks associated with hiking in this event including, but not limited to: falls, contact with other participants, the effects of weather, traffic, and trail conditions, and waive any and all claims which I might have based on any of those and other risks typical found in hiking a trail. I acknowledge all such risks are known and understood by me. I agree to abide by all decisions of any hike official relative to my ability to safely complete the hike.
In the event of an illness, injury or medical emergency arising during the event I hereby authorize and give my consent to the Event Director and the Park to secure from any accredited hospital, clinic and/ or physician any treatment deemed necessary for my immediate care. I agree that I will be fully responsible for payment of any and all medical services and treatment rendered to me including but not limited to medical transport, medications, treatment and hospitalization.
By submitting this entry, I acknowledge (or a parent or adult guardian for all children under 18 years) having read and agreed to the above release and waiver.
Further, I grant permission to all the foregoing to use my name, voice and images of myself in any photographs, motion pictures, results, publications or any other print, videographic or electronic recording of this event for legitimate purposes.
