I assume all risks associated with running and riding in this event, including but not limited to: falls, contact with other participants, traffic, the effects of the weather, including high heat and/or humidity, traffic and the conditions of the road or course (ice, gravel, potholes, uneven surfaces and/or sidewalks, unmarked obstacles, snow, mud, or water) and/or the location or condition of any obstacles, and all such risks being known and appreciated by me.
I understand that scooters, skateboards, roller skates or roller blades and headsets are not allowed in the race and I will abide by this guideline.
