Participant Waiver for Race Registration

I know that walking, skipping, and/or frolicking a road race (if by race you mean to see who can eat their doughnut faster) is a potentially hazardous activity, which could cause injury or death. I will not enter and participate unless I am medically able and properly trained, and by my signature, I certify that I am medically able to perform this event (aka, I have my sloth license), in good health, and properly trained (though still a little feral at times). I agree to abide by any decision of a race official relative to any aspect of my participation in this event, including the right of any official to deny or suspend my participation for any reason whatsoever. I attest that I have read the rules of the race and agree to abide by them. I assume all risks associated with running in this event (running itself is a risk, that's why we don't do it), including but not limited to: falls, contact with other participants (but we’re actually fun and you might want to contact us, like maybe for a coffee friend date next week), the effects of the weather including high heat and/or humidity (rain, snow, mosquito tornadoes, hurricanes), traffic and the conditions of the road, or the hissing geese who hang near the river, all such risks being known and appreciated by me. I understand that bicycles, skateboards, roller skates or roller blades, and watercraft (we don't actually follow this rule ourselves...) are not allowed in the race and I will abide by all race rules (Especially the “No Running” part). Having read this waiver and knowing these facts and in consideration of your accepting my entry, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the Minot Lions Club TrySlothAlon, the City of Minot, Atypical, Arny's 2.0, all event 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 (Safe ridiculousness and shenanigans are highly encouraged). I grant permission to all of the foregoing to use my photographs, motion pictures, recordings or any other record of this event for any legitimate purpose. (Make sure to tag us in all yours too!) I understand that this event does not provide for refunds in the event of a cancellation, and by signing this waiver, I consent that I am not entitled to a refund if the event is cancelled before or during the event. Listen, we stole this thing from one of those ACTUAL marathons, so there's not as much risk as it might look. Just watch out for the river, it'll get'cha!
