I know that running a road race is a potentially hazardous activity. I should not enter and run unless I am medically able and properly trained. I also know that, although police protection will be provided, there will be traffic on the course route. I assume the risk of running in traffic. I also assume any and all other risks associated with running this event, including but not limited to falls, contact with other participants, the effects of weather including high heat and/or humidity and the condition of the roads, all such risks being known and appreciated by me. I agree to abide by all decisions of the race officials relative to my ability to safely complete this race. I agree not to wear headsets, roller blades or skates during the race. I agree not to bring scooters or dogs onto the race course. If using a stroller/jogger, I agree to start in the last wave and walk the race course. Knowing these facts, and in consideration of your accepting my entry, I hereby for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators or anyone else who might claim on my behalf, covenant not to sue, and waive, release and discharge the Friends of the Zoo, Inc., Kansas City, MO., Kansas City Parks and Recreation, Garry Gribble's Running Sports, Mid-America Running Association, Event Midwest, LLC, RaceDay Timing Solutions and coordinators; and other participating area sponsors; City of Kansas City, Missouri including their Police Department; Race Officials; Volunteers; any and all sponsors including their agents, employees, assigns or anyone acting for or on their behalf, from any and all claims or liability for death, personal injury or property damage of any kind or nature whatsoever arising out of, or in the course of, my participation in this event though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons named in this waiver. I understand that the rules of the USAT&F regarding drug testing may be obtained by calling the U.S.O.C. at 1-800-233-0393.
This Release and Waiver extends to all claims of every kind or nature whatsoever, foreseen or unforeseen, known or unknown.
The undersigned further grants full permission to all of the persons or entities in this waiver and/or agents authorized by them to use any photographs, videotapes, motion pictures recording, or any other record of this event for any purpose, including social media.
