I AGREE to comply with the rules, regulations, postings, warnings and event instructions of the Gourdy’s Pumpkin Run and any race related events, regardless of whether conducted virtually or in-person (collectively, the “Events”) as detailed in this Events Waiver (“Waiver”).
I UNDERSTAND that participating in any athletic event such as the above Events, whether it is conducted virtually or in-person, is a potentially hazardous activity and can result in serious injury or death. I am aware of and I expressly assume all inherent risks associated with participating in the Events, including, but not limited to, falls, insects or animals, contact with other participants and objects, the effects of weather, including high heat and humidity, traffic, and the conditions of the course. I understand that in any Event conducted virtually, there will be no on-course support from SFE or any other entity such as a government personnel or emergency medical services.
IN CONSIDERATION of your accepting this entry, I for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release from any and all claims for injuries and damages I may have against (i) Sour Fish Events, LLC, its subsidiaries, affiliated companies, owners, members, managers, directors, officers, past and present employees, agents, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, “SFE”); (ii) any Premises owner(s); (iii) any Event volunteers; and (iv) any Event sponsors, sponsor’s affiliates and contractors, and their respective employees (collectively, “Releasees”) arising out of my participation in the Events, including pre and post-Events activities.
I ATTEST that I am physically fit, have no disabilities or conditions (including but not limited to pregnancy) that would render my participation in the Events dangerous to my health, and have sufficiently trained for competition in the Events. I am responsible for my own health, safety, and wellbeing at all times at the Events.
I CONSENT to receive medical treatment which may be advisable in the event I should suffer an illness or injury during the Events, and I agree to pay for the costs of my medical treatment.
I AGREE to receive emails from SFE, which do not obligate me to purchase any ticket or product or participate in any Events. If I wish to not receive such emails, I understand I may click “unsubscribe” to be removed from any future emails.
I UNDERSTAND that all entries are final, with no refunds, and that the Event organizers reserve the right in the event of an emergency or local or national disaster to cancel the race or to change the day and/or time of any Event and that there is no refund of entry fees.
I UNDERSTAND that if I do not follow all rules, postings, regulations and instructions for the Events and proper behavior, SFE may disqualify me from the Events and/or require that I leave the Premises without further delay.
I UNDERSTAND and agree that SFE may, in its sole discretion, cancel the Events due to weather, (i.e. heat, floods, lightning, etc.), acts of war or terrorism, military conflicts or riots, public health or safety reasons ( i.e. pandemic, epidemic), or any other reason it determines may affect the safety and security of the participants in the Events.
I GIVE PERMISSION for the free use of my name, likeness, voice or picture in any broadcast, telecast, advertising promotion or other account of the Events.
I UNDERSTAND that the laws of the State of Illinois shall apply to all matters relating to this Waiver regardless of the Event location, that the exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute with the Releasees shall take place in the courts in Cook County, Illinois. I consent to personal jurisdiction in the State of Illinois in connection with any dispute arising out of my participation or attendance at the Events.
I AGREE that electronic submission of this application constitutes agreement to all the terms of this waiver and release statement.
I WARRANT that I have read this Waiver, understand its terms, acknowledge that I will be giving up substantial legal rights by signing it, and intend for my signature to be my unconditional acceptance of the terms of this Waiver.
