HANGANA HAKE RUN & RIDE WAIVER
In submitting this entry form for the above event, I hereby freely agree to and make the following contractual representations and agreements:
I acknowledge that by submitting this entry form to participate in any of the events hosted as part of the Hangana Hake Run & Ride I am assuming risks, and agree to irrevocably indemnify, not to sue and release from liability the organiser of this event, the Namibian Cycling Federation, and their respective agents, officials, employees and promoting organisations, insurers, volunteers, clubs, officials, sponsors, event directors, local associations, property owners, law enforcement agencies, public entities, affiliates and properties that are in any manner connected with this event (collectively “RELEASEES”), and that I am giving up substantial legal rights. This release is a contract with legal and binding consequences and it applies to all races and activities entered at the event, regardless whether or not listed above.
I declare that all information supplied by me is true and correct. I am in good health and physically fit and sufficiently trained to participate in all activities associated with the event and my participation in such events is voluntary. I know that participating in any of the running and cycling events is potentially hazardous and fully realise the dangers of participating in this event and FULLY ASSUME THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH PARTICIPATION INCLUDING, by way of example, and not limited to: the dangers of collision with pedestrians, vehicles, other riders, and fixed or moving objects; the dangers arising from surface hazards, including pot holes, equipment failure, inadequate safety equipment, use of equipment or materials provided by the event organizer and others, the RELEASEES’ own negligence, the negligence of others and weather conditions; and the possibility of serious physical and/or mental trauma or injury, or death associated with the event.
For myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, legal representatives, assignees, and successors in interest (collectively “SUCCESSORS”) I hereby waive irrevocably, wholly and unconditionally, release, discharge, hold harmless, and promise to indemnify and not to sue the RELEASEES, from any and all rights and claims including claims arising from the RELEASEES’ own negligence to the maximum extent permitted by law, which I have or which may hereafter accrue to me and from any and all damages which may be sustained by me directly or indirectly in connection with, or arising out of, my participation in or association with the event, or travel to or return from the event.
I agree it is my sole responsibility to be familiar with the event course and agenda, the RELEASEES’ rules, and any special regulations for the event and agree to comply with all such rules and regulations. I understand and agree that situations may arise during the event which may be beyond the control of the RELEASEES, and I must participate so as to neither endanger myself nor others. I accept responsibility for the condition and adequacy of my equipment, any equipment provided for my use, and my conduct in connection with this event.
I agree, for myself and my SUCCESSORS, that the above representations are contractually binding, and are not mere recitals, and that should I or my SUCCESSORS assert a claim contrary to what I have agreed to in this contract, the claiming party shall be liable for the expenses (including legal fees) incurred by the RELEASEES in defending the claims.
This contract may not be modified orally, and a waiver or modification of any provision shall not be construed as a waiver or modification of any other provision herein or as a consent to any subsequent waiver or modification.
I consent to the release by any third party to RELEASEES and their insurance carriers of my name and medical information that may relate solely to any injury or death I may suffer arising from the event.
Every term and provision of this contract is intended to be severable. If any one or more of them is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that shall not affect the other terms and provisions, which shall remain binding and enforceable.
I ATTEST THAT I AM EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER (or that if I am younger, my parents or legal guardian have executed this waiver in accordance with the terms set out below)
AGE CONSENT AND RELEASE OF PARENT\LEGAL GUARDIAN
I am the parent or legal guardian of the child for whom the entry is made. My Child is fit for the event, and I consent to my Child’s participation. I HAVE READ AND I UNDERSTAND THE ABOVE CONTRACT. In consideration of allowing my Child to participate, I consent to the contract and agree that it’s terms shall likewise bind me, my child, and our heirs, legal representatives, and assignees. I hereby release irrevocably, wholly and unconditionally and shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the releases from every claim and any liability that I or my Child may allege against the RELEASEES (including reasonable legal fees and costs) as a direct or indirect result of injury or death to me or my Child because of my Child’s participation in the event, whether caused by the negligence of the RELEASEES OR OTHERS to the maximum extent permitted by law. I promise not to sue the RELEASEES on my behalf or on behalf of my Child regarding any claim arising from my Child’s participation in the event.
