Waiver

GENERAL WAIVER AGREEMENT AND RELEASE

Acknowledgement

I agree to the terms and rules on the GOW100s website and the following as a condition of entry into the event:

I, the undersigned, affirm that I participate in this run at my own risk, that there will be some support available and some route markings, aid stations will be positioned at predetermined points along the course, and minimal medical support or assistance and I cannot hold my fellow runners, those who advertise the run or anyone else involved in the run or anyone else, responsible for any accident, injury or death sustained by anyone, anywhere or any property lost, stolen or damaged. 

I know that the run traverses extremely rough and rugged bushland, that is inhabited by the standard Australian wildlife ie snakes, and accept I could get hurt, lost, dehydrated, injured or could even die. I understand that I will be running in an area subject to severe and rapid changes in weather including, high temperatures, high winds, rain, and sleet. I fully accept this on my own behalf. 

I believe that I am fit enough to start and complete this run, or else have the capabilities to get back to civilisation or my support crew and that I am responsible for myself and the cost of any search and/or rescue and/or ambulance if I become lost or suffer any medical problem. I will not start the race if ill or injured. 

The race organisers may refuse to allow me to participate in the event if reasonably required for the safety of myself or others.

By competing, I accept all risks necessarily flowing from my participation which could result in loss of life or permanent injury and acknowledge that I will be responsible for my own health and safety during the event. If I observe any safety risk during the event, I agree to notify event management immediately and take all practicable steps to ensure my own health and safety and the safety of others. Accordingly, I release all persons or corporations associated directly or indirectly with the conduct of the event from all claims, demands and proceedings arising out of my participation and I hereby indemnify them against all liability (including liability for their negligence and the negligence of others) for all injury, loss or damage arising out of my participation in this event or any breach of these terms. This release shall extend to and include the GOW100s organisers and volunteers and Australian Ultra Runners Association Inc. (AURA) and its respective committee and volunteers including medical and paramedical personnel appointed for the event, the owners, licensees and occupiers of land upon which the event or any part of it is conducted, any statutory body or local authority having control over any land upon which the event or any part of it is conducted or which is involved directly or indirectly with the event in any manner whatsoever, and promoters and sponsors. This release and indemnity continues forever and binds my heirs, executors, personal representatives and assignees.

I consent to receive such medical aid or preventative treatment which may be deemed advisable in the unfettered discretion of event medical and paramedical personnel in the event of any injury, accident or illness to me as the result of my participation in the event.

I agree to abide by the event rules and conditions and agree that the event organisers may, at their absolute discretion, vary the event rules and conditions without prior notice to me. I will carry all of the mandatory gear for the duration of the race.

I consent to GOW100s and event sponsors using my name, image and likeness before, during or after the event for event promotional broadcasting or reporting purposes in any media. 

I understand that safety precautions undertaken by organisers (such as course supervision, gear checks and race safety briefings) are a service to me and other competitors but are not a guarantee of safety.

I am fully responsible for the security of my personal possessions at the event.

I agree to abide by the race rules and directions issued by the event organisers.

The event organisers may change the race format, course of other race conditions at their discretion. Should such change occur then this agreement applies to the changed conditions.
