FREEDOM FOUR WAIVER
Waiver & Release Of All Claims & Hold Harmless Agreement For The Glen Ellyn Park District
The Glen Ellyn Park District is committed to conducting its recreation programs and activities in a safe manner and holds the safety of participants in high regard. The Glen Ellyn Park District continually strives to reduce such risks and insists that all participants follow safety rules and instructions that are designed to protect the participants’ safety. However, participants and parents/guardians of minors registering for this program must recognize that there is an inherent risk of injury when choosing to participate in recreational activities.
You are solely responsible for determining if you or your minor child/ward are physically fit and/or adequately skilled for the activities contemplated by this agreement. It is always advisable, especially if the participant is pregnant, disabled in any way or recently suffered an illness, injury or impairment, to consult a physician before undertaking any physical activity.
WARNING OF RISK
Road racing is an activity which challenges and engages the physical, mental and emotional resources of each participant. However, despite careful and proper preparation, instruction, medical advice, conditioning and equipment, there is still a risk of serious injury. Understandably, not all hazards and dangers can be foreseen. The very nature of road racing is hazardous and risky, including but not limited to overexertion, dehydration, slip and fall, collisions with other participants, the effects of weather, dangerous conditions of the road, being struck by a vehicle or bicycle, lack of good physical conditioning, poor training technique, and all other circumstances inherent to the sport of road racing. In this regard, it must be recognized that it is impossible for the Glen Ellyn Park District to guarantee absolute safety.
