I know that running a race is a potentially hazardous activity. I should not enter and run unless I am medically able and properly trained. I agree to abide by any decision of race officials relative to my ability to safely complete the run. I assume all risks associated with running in this event including, but not limited to: falls, contact with other participants, bicycles and vehicular traffic, injuries or illness from animals or plants, the effects of weather and all risks associated with event participation. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts and in consideration of you accepting my entry, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the City of Madison, USA Track & Field and all race officials and agents, all clubs and sponsors, their representatives and successors from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in this event even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons named in this waiver. Athletes who do not follow course rules, general good sportsmanship or race day guidelines put forth by the race director face potential disqualification and loss of eligibility for future events. ADDITIONAL AGREEMENT WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN FOR ASSUMPTION OF RISK, INDEMNIFICATION, RELEASE, AND CONSENT FOR EMERGENCY TREATMENT: In consideration of my voluntary participation in the Mad City 100K, I understand that I am being asked to carefully read each of the following paragraphs. I understand that if I wish to discuss any of the terms contained in this agreement, I may contact the UW-Madison Office of Risk Management at either (608) 262-8925 or (608) 262-0379. Assumption of Risks: I understand that the physical activity of the Mad City 100K, by its very nature, includes certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries. Some of these involve strenuous exertion, using various muscle groups, and the risk of falling in an awkward manner and landing on head or shoulders. The specific risks vary, but range from: 1) minor injuries such as scratches, bruises, and sprains, to 2) major injuries such as fractures, internal injuries, joint, neck or back injuries, blood clots, heart attacks, and concussions, to 3) catastrophic injuries including paralysis and even death. I understand and appreciate the risks that are inherent in the Mad City 100K. I hereby assert that my participation is voluntary and that I knowingly assume all such risks. I further understand that I am ultimately responsible for my own safety. Hold Harmless, Indemnity and Release: In consideration of me to participate in the Mad City 100K, I agree, for myself, my heirs, personal representatives or assigns, to defend, hold harmless, indemnify and release, the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System, its officers, employees, agents, and volunteers from any and all claims, demands, actions, or causes of action of any sort on account of damage to personal property or personal injury or death which may result from my participation in the Mad City 100K. This release includes claims based on the negligence of the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System and its officers, employees, agents and volunteers, but expressly does not include claims based on their intentional misconduct or gross negligence. I understand that by agreeing to this clause I am releasing claims and giving up substantial rights, including my right to sue. Consent for Emergency Treatment: I authorize the University of Wisconsin-Madison and its designated representatives to consent, on my behalf, to any emergency medical/hospital care or treatment to be rendered upon the advice of any licensed physician. I agree to be responsible for all necessary charges incurred by any hospitalization or treatment rendered pursuant to this authorization. I am aware that USATF has a policy for voluntary drug testing. Athletes who are asked to and refuse to take a drug test will face automatic disqualification from this and future Wisconsin USATF/National USATF events. I declare that I am an amateur. I certify that in accordance with the rules of USATF and IAAF, I am eligible to compete in this event. Agree to waiver by checking here.
