This Release includes all damage, loss, or injury whatsoever, from whatever cause, and whether it be direct, indirect, or consequential.
I hereby acknowledge that participation in the Event, like all physical activities, has inherent risks and dangers including, but not limited to, slips, falls, contact with other participants, and other such risks, all of which are known to and appreciated and assumed by me. I acknowledge that I am medically, physically, and mentally fit to participate in the Event safely. In the event of any injury to me during, after, or as a result of my participation in the Event, I agree to bear all financial and other responsibility for any medical treatment or other costs associated with or arising from my participation in the Event or any injury arising from said participation. I knowingly assume the risks associated with my participation in the Event.
This Agreement is binding upon me, my heirs, executors, administrators, and legal representatives, and any other parties affiliated with me. This Agreement also constitutes my agreement and covenant not to sue any of the aforementioned Releasees. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Releasees for any injury caused by my negligence or intentional conduct and from and against any and all claims, liabilities, losses and damages, costs, expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, and penalties.
I hereby acknowledge that I have carefully read this Participation, Assumption of Risk, Release, and Waiver Agreement. I understand this Agreement and sign it voluntarily of my own free will. I understand that I would not be permitted to participate in the Event but for my signature on this Agreement. This Agreement contains the parties’ entire agreement. The Agreement is contractual in nature and not a mere recital. This Agreement shall be construed and governed in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio. If any provision should be found to be unenforceable, the remainder of the Agreement shall still be given legal affect.
