All participants enter at their own risk.
Every participant should understand that participation in this event, where you will be asked to tackle challenging obstacles, is potentially dangerous and there is a higher risk of injury than in a standard running race.
The venue offers a hostile environment that might include extreme heat or cold, snow, fire, mud, extreme changes in elevation, and water. Some of the activities include jumps from height, military style obstacles, trapeze, going through pipes, traversing cargo nets, climbing walls, encountering electric voltage, being immersed in cold water, carrying or getting hit with heavy objects, and crawling through muddy areas. To conclude the Adrenaline Rush event is a hazardous activity that will be a physical and mental challenge.
Inherent risks are risks that cannot be eliminated completely (without changing the challenging nature of the Adrenaline Rush event) regardless of the care and precautions taken by the Adrenaline Rush Team and the other Released Parties.
Inherent risks include, but are not limited to: 1) contact or collision with persons or objects (e.g., collision with spectators or course personnel), contact with other participants, and contact with natural or man-made fixed objects or obstacles); 2) encounter with obstacles (e.g., natural and man-made water, road and surface hazards, close proximity and/ or contact with thick smoke and open flames, barbed wire, pipes, and electric shocks); 3) equipment related hazards (e.g., broken, defective or inadequate competition equipment, unexpected equipment failure, imperfect course conditions); 4) weather-related hazards (e.g., extreme heat, extreme cold, humidity, ice, rain, fog); 5) inadequate first aid and/or emergency measures; 6) judgment- and/or behaviour-related problems (e.g., erratic or inappropriate co-participant or spectator behaviour, erratic or inappropriate behaviour by the participant, errors in judgment by personnel working the event; and 7) natural hazards (e.g. uneven terrain, rock falls, lightning strikes, earthquakes, wildlife attacks, contact with poisonous plants, marine life and/or ticks).
It is understood that these risks and others, not specifically named, may cause injury or injuries that may be categorised as minor, serious, or catastrophic. Minor injuries are common and include, but are not limited to: scrapes, bruises, sprains, nausea, and cuts. Serious injuries are less common, but do sometimes occur. They include, but are not limited to: property loss or damage, broken bones, fractures, torn or strained ligaments and tendons, concussions, exposure, dehydration, heat exhaustion and other heat-related illnesses, mental stress or exhaustion, infection, vomiting, dislocations, hyperthermia, hypothermia, anemia, electrolyte imbalance, loss of consciousness, syncope, dizziness, fainting, seizures, electric shock and/or injury, and neurological disorders/pain. Catastrophic injuries are rare; however, we feel that our participants should be aware of the possibility. These injuries can include but are not limited to, permanent disabilities, stroke, single or multiple organ failure or dysfunction, physical damage to organs, spinal injuries, paralysis, heart attack, heart failure, blood cell disorder, brain swelling, and even death.
The participant understands it is their responsibility to inspect the course, facilities, equipment, and areas to be used, and if they believe or become aware that any are unsafe or pose unreasonable risks, they agree to immediately notify appropriate personnel. By participating in the event, the participant acknowledges that they have found the course, facilities, equipment, and areas to be used to be safe and acceptable for participation. The Participants understand fully the inherent risks involved in the Adrenaline Rush event and assert that they willingly and voluntarily participated in the event. The Participants acknowledge that they participate at their own risk and take full responsibility for any and all damages, liabilities, losses, or expenses that I incur as a result of participating.
