"I fully understand that running an ultra marathon is a potentially hazardous activity. I am prepared to cover the distance in the time limit specified and am prepared with the proper clothing and equipment to ensure my safety if conditions become difficult. I assume all risks associated with participating in this event, including but not limited to a fall, slipping on leaves and walnuts, effects of weather including heat, cold, precipitation; salmonella or botulism that may be lying in wait on the food; the condition of the course; black toenails and severe chafing; and crossing roads where motorized vehicles have the right of way; all such risks being known and appreciated by me. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts, I waive, release and hold harmless the race organizer, New River Trail State Park, all other sponsors, agents, employees, officers, directors, and volunteers working for those entities from all claims and liabilities of any kind arising out of or related to my participation in this event. I also understand the course will be shared with the public-walkers, runners, cyclists and people on horses for the duration of this event and that pacers (with exception of non prize seeking individuals during last several miles), pets are not allowed on the course. Runners choosing to wear personal headsets are urged to keep the volume to a level so they can be aware of and respond to other trail users."
