I know that running in an event that is organized as a virtual activity ("Virtual Event") where I run on my own, at a date and time of my choosing, in a location and running route of my choosing, which will not have any support or security measures in place by Krempels Center (organizer), is a potentially hazardous activity due to risks both foreseeable and possibly unforeseeable, which could result in injury or death. I acknowledge that I am participating in the running and all related activity involved in this Virtual Event by my own free will and at my own personal risk with no expectation that the organizer of the event or any of the organizer’s agents, representatives, successors, assigns, sponsors or officials (hereinafter "Organizer") have any responsibility to me for any resulting injury or death from any cause. I covenant that I will not participate in the Virtual Event unless I am medically able and properly trained to do so, 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 further agree to abide by the Center for Disease Control (CDC)'s recommendations for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 and attest to having read the CDC's guidance at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html, and further that I shall be solely responsible for the consequences of any breach by me of the said CDC recommendations. I attest that if my community or the community where the running will take place has a shelter in place order, that I will only participate in the Virtual Event by using a personal treadmill (and I accept any and all risks of injury or death to me in doing so), and I will not run outside in the community during the duration of a shelter in place order. I agree to follow all pedestrian safety ordinances including running on a sidewalk where available and not in the road. I agree to follow the rules of the road if no sidewalk or multi-use trail is available and I will run against oncoming traffic and not with traffic, all of which constitute activities likely to be involved in the Virtual Event.
I further agree to abide by any decision of any Virtual Event or other race official relative to any aspect of my participation in this virtual 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 virtual race scheduled for May 23 through May 30, 2021 including the terms in this waiver, the timeline of the virtual event, and agree to abide by them. I assume all risks to me associated with running on my own, whether outside or inside, as part of this virtual activity, including but not limited to: falls, contact with other pedestrians, the effects of the weather, including high heat and/or humidity, traffic and the conditions of the road or trail, all such risks being known or unknown and appreciated by me when out running on my own without any type of support from local officials or event organizers.
Having read this waiver and knowing these facts and in consideration of the Organizer of the Virtual Event accepting my entry, I, for myself and anyone entitled or authorized to act on my behalf, waive and release the Organizer, the city of Portsmouth, all event sponsors, their representatives and successors from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in this Virtual Event, and waive any right I may have to bring any legal action against the Organizer entities outlined in this waiver as I am voluntarily electing to run on my own as part of this virtual event. I grant permission to the Organizer entities to use my photographs which I may share online as part of the event, personal data provided during registration and post-event reporting, video or audio recordings, or any other record of this event for any legitimate purpose. I understand that this event does not provide for refunds in the event of a cancellation, and by signing this waiver, I consent that I am not entitled to a refund if the event is cancelled before or during the event.
