I assume responsibility for my own and/or the Minor’s (if applicable) physical fitness and capability to participate in the Peak2Peak. I agree to remove myself and/or the Minor from participation in the event should I sense or observe any hazard or unsafe condition, or feel that I and/or the Minor are unfit or unable to safely continue.
