USE OF IMAGE
I understand that during the race or in related activities, I may be photographed, filmed, and/or videotaped. I agree to allow my name, photo, video or film likeness to be used for any legitimate promotional purpose by the event holders, producers, sponsors, organisers and assigns.
I certify that I will have adequate insurance to cover unanticipated trip cancellation /interruption, and any injury or damage that may occur on the trip, or which I may suffer while participating, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself.
VOLUNTARY PARTICIPATION AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK
I acknowledge that I have voluntarily applied to participate in the 2017 Volcano Marathon and that I have carefully read and understand the description, terms, conditions and recommendations of the trip. I am participating in this race with the full knowledge of any hazards involved.
I understand that the Atacama Desert is a very remote area and will be desolate of immediate medical facilities. The nearest hospital to the race location is at the town of Calama, some 200km away. I understand that I will be running a marathon at altitude, which can exert extreme demands on the body, and I will be exposing myself to the risks of altitude sickness because the event starts at over 14,000 feet. The Volcano Marathon will also take place in extreme heat, with temperatures potentially reaching 50+ Celsius Degrees in November. I fully accept that the combination of the race distance, altitude and heat could actually put me at risk of death by running a marathon in such a remote location.
I further understand that Global Running Adventures, Inc. (54th East Street # 3A - Marbella - Panama City - Panama), Richard Donovan and other organisers cannot 100% guarantee the safety of competitors since the event wil be carried out in a harsh and remote environment, the driest desert on Earth.
In consideration of being permitted to participate in this trip, I fully assume responsibility upon myself for such bodily, mental, and financial injuries caused by, but not limited to various surface transportation, accidents, hazards of travelling in the Atacama Desert environment, forces of nature, civil unrest, terrorism, and other perils. I freely assume these and all other risks inherent in this Volcano Marathon trip, in exchange for the thrill and adventure of travelling and participating in the Volcano Marathon.
I hereby assume all risks, however caused, including those mentioned above, as a result of my participation.
RELEASE FROM LIABILITY
In consideration of the services of Global Running Adventures, agents, owners, officers, volunteers, participants, employees, sponsors, medical personnel and all other persons, or entities acting in any capacity on their behalf: I hereby agree to release, indemnify, and discharge them, on behalf of myself, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and estate as follows:
I release Global Running Adventures and all of its agents and representatives or other entities acting on their behalf from any and all liability, actions, causes of actions, suits, debts, and demands that I may have for bodily injury, death, or property damage, loss of income, delays and claims of every sort and nature whatsoever which may arise out of or in connection with my participation in the 2017 Volcano Marathon.
GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION
The validity, construction and performance of this Agreement shall be governed in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Panama. The parties hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Republic of Panama as regards any claim, dispute, or matter arising out of, or in connection with this Agreement.
I have carefully read and understand the description, terms, conditions and recommendations of the 2017 Volcano Marathon and I am participating with a thorough knowledge of the hazards involved. I freely and voluntarily agree to the terms and conditions of the 2017 Volcano Marathon by signing this contract.
