I wish to enter and participate in the Harder ‘n He!! Half Marathon(“Run”). I accept the rules, conditions, and regulations of the Run and will comply with them. I acknowledge that I am responsible for myself and crew, and can be disqualified for their violations of the rules. I am aware that a half marathon on rough trails is extremely difficult and hazardous for even well conditioned athletes under the most favorable of conditions. This Run covers difficult, rocky terrain and could have dangerous weather conditions. I am aware that I should not participate in this Run unless: a) I am in excellent physical condition, b) I have previously run long distances on rugged trails, and c) I have informed Run management of any medical conditions or risks I possess. I am also aware that I may be exposed to physical injury from a number of natural hazards of the trail and weather including lack of water, communicable diseases, wildlife, falls, contact with other participants, hazards of vehicular traffic, and other hazards attendant to running along or across roadways during the day or night. I understand and accept that the risks include I may become injured or incapacitated in a location where it is difficult or impossible for the Run’s management to get required medical aid to me in time to avoid physical injury or death.

I further agree that I will defend and indemnify the above released parties against all claims, demands and cause of action or other proceeding brought by or prosecuted for my behalf contrary to this agreement. This release extends to all claims of every kind and nature whatsoever, whether known or unknown.
