I know that participating in and/or volunteering to work at the Michael Bratton II Memorial Turkey Trot is potentially hazardous activity. I should not enter and run, walk and/or volunteer unless I am medically able and properly trained. I agree to abide by any decision of a race official relative to my ability to safely complete the run, walk and/or volunteer. I also agree that I may be examined and treated if necessary during the course of a race by qualified race personnel in the event medical problems arise. The race officials or the qualified personnel have the right to disqualify me and remove me from the race, if in their opinion, I may be suffering from a life threatening condition. I assume all risks associated with walking/running in and volunteering for races including, but not limited to, falls, contact with other participants, the effects of the weather, including high heat and/or humidity, the conditions of the road and traffic on the course, all such risks being known and appreciated by me. Having read this waver and knowing these facts, and in consideration of your acceptance of my application for participation in races and/or my volunteering, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the MEB2 Foundation, the Gold Country Grand Prix, the Nevada Joint Union High School District, the City of Grass Valley and all above mentioned officers and agents, all sponsors, their representatives and successors from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in events even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons named in this waiver. I understand that my entry fee is nonrefundable. I also approve the use of my and/or dependent’s picture taken before, during or after the races for promotional use without further compensation.
