General Waiver Agreement and Release


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. If I have a pre-existing illness that will compromise my ability to complete the race I will not start. I will not start the race if ill or injured.
