For entrants

I confirm that all matters set out in this form are true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief. I understand that, by signing this form, I am legally agreeing to all of the following statements in exchange for being permitted to participate in the Event.


I understand entries in the Kalinga Dash are to be completed online at www.kalingadash.com.au. Online entries will close on Thursday 10 August 2017 at 9am. Registrations will also be accepted on Saturday 12 August 2017 at the Race Office located at Eagle Junction State School and on race day at the start location if the event has not sold out on-line;


I agree that for an entry to be valid, all entrants must complete the entry form and pay the required entry fee prior to the commencement of the event. All entrants must wear the official race bib at all times during the event. Entry is only valid for the details listed on the entry form and is not transferable;


I agree to remain on the designated course as marked by race officials;


I understand and agree that the overall winner of the 7.5km run and the 4.2km run will be the first individual over the line in both male and female categories. Second and third prizes will also be awarded in the 7.5km run. The winners of the Junior, Open and Masters categories in the 7.5km run will be those male and female entrants first across the line in their assigned category;

I understand prizes will be awarded to valid entrants crossing the finish line in the designated categories and finishing positions detailed on the Prizes page of www.kalingadash.com.au. To be awarded one of the prizes, entrants must be registered by the event organiser and must present themselves at the main stage at Kalinga Park to claim their prize. If the prize winner is ineligible, the entrant may forfeit their prize;

I understand a course cut off time of 9:30am will apply to the 7.5km run and the 4.2km run. Any entrant who is unable to complete the said course by the cut off time will be asked to leave the course by race officials for safety reasons;

I consent to the use of my name, image, photographs, video and comments in any publications and marketing in relation to this event by event organisers. I also consent to receiving e-mail based communications from the event organiser relating to the Kalinga Dash offers and future events;

I agree to walk or run unassisted. Bikes, skateboards, rip sticks, rollerblades or similar items are prohibited for safety reasons. Children in strollers/ prams are only permitted on the 2km Kids Dash course and must commence at the rear of the race start. Strollers and similar devices must meet Australian Safety Standards and have appropriate safety restraints;

I understand and agree that dogs are not permitted on any of the Kalinga Dash courses;

I am aware of the hazards involved in participating in the Event, which may include (but are not limited to): vehicle and pedestrian traffic, actions of participants and spectators, weather conditions, animals and wildlife, heat exhaustion, personal injury, slippery and uneven surfaces, breakages or defects in the event site or equipment, or the failure or unsuitability of a participant’s equipment (including my own). I acknowledge and accept that injury may result not only from my actions (including physical exertion) but also from the actions, omissions or negligence of other people in connection with, or attendance at, the Event;

I agree that it is my responsibility to determine whether I am sufficiently fit, healthy and skilled to safely participate in the Event and I undertake to withdraw myself from the Event and not participate if on the day I am not in good health and proper physical condition. I warrant that I have no physical, medical or mental conditions of which I am aware, or should be aware, that would affect my ability to safely participate in the Event, or that would result in my participation creating a risk of danger to myself or others, which is greater than the risk assumed by a healthy person in the circumstances. I further warrant that I have not been advised or cautioned by a medical practitioner not to participate in the Event;

I understand and agree that I am responsible for my own timely removal from the Event to a medical facility if the need arises and for the timely reporting to the organiser, an official or another entrant, of any medical or safety issue that arises during the Event.

In consideration for being allowed to participate in the Event I agree to release the Associated Entities from all liability for my death, personal injury, psychological trauma, loss or damage (including property damage) or harm howsoever arising in connection with my participation in or attendance at the Event except to the extent prohibited by law;

I agree that the Associated Entities do not make any warranty, implied or express, that the Event services will be provided with due care and skill or that any materials provided in connection with the services will be fit for the purpose for which they were supplied;

I understand that the organiser’s public liability insurance is limited and does not (and is not required by me to) cover or protect me from any injury or damage I cause, whether to me or to others, or any loss I sustain or cause whilst participating in the Event and I acknowledge that I am entitled to obtain, and remain responsible for obtaining, my own legal advice or insurances;


I understand that the organiser reserves the right to alter, postpone, reschedule or cancel the Event at the organiser’s sole discretion, including (but not limited to) the following reasons: if natural or man-made emergencies make administering the Event unreasonable due to weather conditions, natural disaster, acts of God, terrorism, war or any other reason;

I accept that the event organiser’s decision is final and that no correspondence will be entered into. I agree to follow all directions by event organisers in relation to this event;


I agree to act appropriately at all times at the Event, including obeying all laws, regulations, Event rules and directions of officials and I understand that my entry or participation may be voided if through my actions or behaviour, in the opinions of the organiser or an official, I have broken these rules, any law or regulation or brought the Event into disrepute. I further understand that the organiser reserves the right to reject any entry without having to justify or give reasons for their actions;

I understand that this disclaimer is not intended to exclude any valid claim I may have under any policy of insurance held by one or more of the Associated Entities.
