Noble Knight 5k Waiver
I agree to participate in the Noble Knights 5K Event as a runner. I acknowledge that there are inherent risks in participating in the Event and that I am participating at my own risk. The risks include, but are not limited to, those caused by terrain, facilities, temperature, weather, equipment, vehicular traffic, lack of hydration, and actions of other people including, but not limited to, participants, other volunteers, spectators, coaches, event officials, and directors of the 5K Event. While Central Penn College and the Noble Knights 5k take all reasonable precautions, we can make no guarantees regarding these and other risks. I realize that liability may arise from negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons or entities being released, from dangerous or defective equipment or property owned, maintained or controlled by them, or because of their possible liability without fault. I hereby assume all of the risks of participating.
Recognizing the risks of the 5K event, and in consideration for allowing participation in the 5K event, I hereby release, discharge and agree to hold harmless, and to indemnify Central Penn College, its owners, directors, officers, contributors, sponsors, employees, agents, and assigns against and from any causes of action, claims, demands, damages, costs, loss of services, expenses, compensation, all consequential damages and attorneys’ fees (regardless whether pursuant to the laws of any county, state or country) claimed by, through or on behalf of me related directly or indirectly to the 5k race, and specifically including any and all claims for personal injuries sustained while participating in the 5K event without regard to negligence or negligent conditions. I hereby authorize Noble Knights 5k, if after a reasonable attempt has been made to reach a parent, guardian or emergency contact to obtain consent, or if sound medical practice decrees that there is not time to make such an attempt, to consent to any x-ray examination, anesthetic, dental, medical or surgical diagnosis or treatment, and hospital care, to be rendered to me under the general or special supervision and on the advice of any physician or surgeon who may treat me, and consent to any x-ray examination, anesthetic, dental, medical or surgical diagnosis or treatment and hospital care, to be rendered to me by any health care professional who may treat me. I agree to pay for any such treatment and to reimburse the Noble Knights 5k and Central Penn College for all costs and expenses.
I understand that at the Noble Knights 5k event and activities, I may be photographed and/or filmed. I agree to allow my name, voice, photo, video or likeness relating to my participation with the Noble Knights 5k and Central Penn College to be used for any legitimate purpose by event holders, sponsors, organizers and/or assigns, and I waive all copyrights, rights of publicity or privacy and rights to any compensation in perpetuity to which I may otherwise be entitled as a result of the use of my name, voice, photo, video and/or likeness.
I expressly agree that this consent is intended to be as broad and inclusive a release of liability as permitted by applicable law and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect. I hereby warrant and represent that I am 18 years old or older; I have carefully read this consent and agree to its terms and conditions, that before signing this agreement I had the chance to ask questions; and I am aware that by signing this consent, I assume all risks and waive and release certain substantial rights that I may have or possess against the Noble Knights 5k and Central Penn College. To the extent permitted by applicable law, I hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waive trial by jury in any legal action or proceeding related to this agreement.
