IN CONSIDERATION for Blood Sweat Chemo, Inc. and its sponsors, subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, representatives, and agents (collectively, “BSC”) allowing my participation in the Fulton Grand Fondo (the “Event”); I, the undersigned, and on behalf of my spouse, heirs, next of kin, any legal and personal representatives, successors and assigns, hereby agree to and make the following contractual representations pursuant to this Waiver and Release of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement (the “Agreement”);
PARTICIPANT REPRESENTATIONS: I acknowledge that I am participating in an event organized and produced solely by BSC. I hereby represent that (i) I am in good health and physically fit to participate in the Event; and (ii) after having been advised to seek the opinion of a qualified health professional in regard to my participation in the Event, have not been advised against participating in the Event by a qualified health professional. I agree that it is my sole responsibility to determine whether I am sufficiently fit and healthy enough to participate in the Event. I agree to wear a bicycle helmet that meets the requirements set by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission at all times when actively participating in the event.
ASSUMPTION OF RISK: I understand and acknowledge that there are dangers, hazards and risks of injury or damages, some of which are inherent, in my use of, presence at, or participation in the Event. I understand that these dangers, hazards and risks, arising from my use of, presence at, or participation in the Event, whether running, bicycling, swimming, or other portions of the Event, include but are not limited to: the potential for serious bodily injury, permanent disability, paralysis and death; drowning; loss or damage to property; exposure to extreme conditions and circumstances; accidents, illness, contact or collision with other participants, spectators, pedestrians, vehicles, or other natural or manmade objects; dangers arising from adverse weather; imperfect course conditions; water, road and surface hazards; equipment failure; inadequate safety measures; participants of varying skill levels; and other accidents or incidents that may result in injury or damage (“Risks”). I understand that these Risks may be caused in whole or in part by my own actions or inactions, the actions or inactions of others participating in the Event, or the acts, inaction or ordinary negligence of the Released Parties defined below, and I hereby voluntarily and willingly assume all such Risks and any other damages, liabilities, losses or expenses to my person or personal property which I incur as a result of my participation in the Event. I assume all risks of loss, damage or injury to my personal property, whether by any Risks defined herein, or through theft or other unlawful activity. I understand that BSC is not performing any inspection of my bicycle or any other personal property, and I alone warrant and represent that all such property is suitable for use in the Event. I further acknowledge that the nature of the Event itself prohibits supervision of the entire Event course, and that I may not be able to rely on emergency personnel being immediately available without contacting “911”. I acknowledge being advised to consider any safety and security precautions necessary to protect my health or my property throughout the Event.
RELEASE OF LIABILITY: I hereby Release, Waive and Covenant Not to Sue: BSC, all Event sponsors, and all Host Cities, Local Organizing Committees, Venues and Property Owners upon which the Event takes place, Law Enforcement Agencies and other Public Entities providing support for the Event, and each of their respective parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies, officers, directors, partners, shareholders, members, agents, employees and volunteers (Individually and Collectively, the “Released Parties” or “Event Organizers”), with respect to any liability, claim(s), demand(s), cause(s) of action, damage(s), loss or expense (including court costs and reasonable attorneys fees) of any kind or nature (“Liability”) from my use of, presence at or participation in the Event, which may arise out of, result from or relate to the ordinary negligence of the Released Parties.
INDEMNIFICATION: I further agree that if, despite this Agreement, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim for Liability against any of the Released Parties, I will indemnify, defend and hold harmless each of the Released Parties from any such Liability which may be incurred as the result of such claim.
RELEASE FOR PERSONAL LIKENESS: I understand that the Event Organizers, and/or those authorized by the Event Organizers, may be (i) taking photographs, (ii) making audio recordings and (iii) video recordings of the Event and its related events. I hereby irrevocably consent to and grant BSC, and/or anyone authorized by BLC, the exclusive right to the ownership and use of any and all (i) photographs, (ii) audio recordings and/or (iii) video recordings containing my image or likeness, for any lawful or commercial purpose whatsoever in connection with promotion of BLC, its sponsors, and any related events.
ADDITIONAL TERMS: I understand the Event course, distance, location, and timeline can be changed at the sole discretion of the Event Organizers. All distances are approximate by GPS measurements. The Event can be altered, postponed or cancelled for any reason, including, but not limited to: inclement weather, natural disturbances, police activity, acts/threats of terrorism, or other reasons beyond the Related Parties’ reasonable control. If the Event is cancelled or altered as described above, no refunds, credits or transfers will be issued, granted or permitted.
