In consideration of Animal Friends Humane Society permitting me to participate in the Dog Jog and/or 5K (no animals are allowed in 5K) activities (collectively, the “Event”), I, on behalf of myself, my heirs, executors, representatives, administrators, agents and assigns (collectively the “Releasors”) irrevocably and unconditionally fully and forever waive, release and discharge Butler County, Ohio, the City of Fairfield, Ohio, Animal Friends Humane Society (AFHS), and each party’s agents, officers, elected or appointed officials, directors, employees, and volunteers in their corporate and personal capacities (collectively, the “Released Parties”), from any and all claims, demands, actions, causes of actions, judgements, rights, fees, damages, debts, obligations, liabilities and expenses (including attorney’s fees) of any kind whatsoever, whether known or not, whether a rising out of contract or negligence, that Releasors may have or may ever have against the Released Parties arising out of, or in any way related to my participation in this Event.

I know that participating in a road race is a potentially hazardous activity, and that I should not enter, run, walk or jog unless I and my animal are medically able to do so and sufficiently trained. However, with this knowledge I have made a decision to participate, and having done so, I hereby assume all risks associated with participating in this Event including, but not limited to falls, contact with other participants and other animals, exposure to and/or contracting a communicable disease such as COVID-19, the adverse effects of weather, traffic, and course conditions. I acknowledge that all such risks are known by me, understood by me, and assumed by me.

In the event of any illness, injury or medical emergency arising to myself or my animal during the Event, I hereby authorize and give my consent to the Event organizers / volunteers to secure any medical treatment that they deem to be necessary (including, but not limited to treatment, medications, medical transport, and hospitalization) from any medical professional, emergency medical technician, hospital or clinic, and I agree that I will be fully responsible for the full payment of any charges for these goods and services. 

I agree to abide by all decisions of any race official relative to my and my animal’s ability to safely complete the run. I certify as a material condition to my being permitted to enter this race that I am physically fit and sufficiently trained for the completion of this event. If I am participating with my animal, then I also certify that he or she is physically fit and sufficiently trained for the completion of the event. I understand that at any time during the Event, I can be asked to leave the Event if I or my animal displays any inappropriate behavior, including but not limited to acts of aggression that may be threatening to any other persons or animals at the Event, and if this happens there will not be any refund of my entrance fee.

I understand the Event allows only one animal per person and that all animals must wear ID tags, be on a leash (no retractable leashes permitted), socialize well with other dogs and people, be current on rabies vaccinations and not be in heat. I understand no animals are permitted in the 5K and that if I am participating in both the 5K and any other part of the Event, I will have someone else care for my animal while I participate in the 5K. I further understand that I am solely responsible for the actions of any animal that I bring to the Event.

I understand the Animal Friends Humane Society reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse entry of any animal or person based on safety or other concerns. 

This event follows the standard running industry policy: All entry fees are non-refundable. AFHS reserves the right to postpone or cancel the event due to circumstances beyond its control, including but not limited to a natural disaster or emergency, or as required to protect the safety of participants, animals, staff, volunteers, sponsors and the public. No refunds will be issued under these circumstances. AFHS reserves the right to change the details of the Event without prior notice. I understand that my entry fee is nonrefundable and bib numbers are non-transferable.

Employees, agents or volunteers for AFHS, members of the press/media, or other persons who may attend or participate in this Event may photograph, videotape or take statements. I grant permission to all of the foregoing to use my photographs, motion pictures, recordings or any other record of this event for any legitimate purpose. 

Covenant Not To Sue – I agree not to bring suit, action, proceeding or claim against AFHS or any other Released Party for any dispute or dissatisfaction arising out of my participation, or application to participate in this Event.

By submitting this entry, I acknowledge (or a parent or adult guardian acknowledges for all children under 18 years) that I have read the entire Application, Waiver & Release form including the no refund policy, and that I agree to all of the Terms and Conditions contained herein.
