Assumption of Risk, Release, and Indemnity Agreement
Assumption of Risk: I understand that the activities in which I will engage at or near
the Oak City Recovery Run Club site at 1251 Goode Street, Raleigh, NC 27603 and Lake Johnson Park, 4601 Avent Ferry Rd, Raleigh, NC 27606 involve inherent and other risks. This location includes all running routes within the Raleigh area. I acknowledge
that the activities are strenuous and dangerous and require a certain degree of physical condition,
ability, maturity, and skill including the requirement that each participant MUST be over age 21. I acknowledge that I am solely responsible for determining my suitability to participate in the activities. I have the requisite skills, qualifications, physical and mental
ability, and training necessary to properly and safely participate in the activities. I share
responsibility for my safety and will follow instructions, make reasonable decisions, and act
responsibly. The leaders of the Oak City Recovery Run Club cannot ensure my safety and
do not seek to eliminate all of the risks of the activities before each group run. I choose to
voluntarily participate and observe the activities despite all risks. I assume all inherent and
other risks and accept responsibility for any property damage and loss, and for any
personal injury, illness, disability, emotional distress, and death that I may suffer, whether
described above or not.
In consideration of the Oak City Recovery Run Club providing services and facilities and allowing me to
participate in or observe the activities, I agree to the following:
Waiver and Release: I, agree to forever release and discharge the Oak City Recovery Run Club from and
agree not to sue for any and all liability or claims I may have for any property damage and
loss, personal injury, emotional distress, illness, disability, and death, related to my (or my
child’s) participation in the activities. This release is for any type of claim, including breach of
contract, fraud, or any other type of suit and includes personal injury and property losses alleged
to be caused by the negligence of the Oak City Recovery Run Club to the fullest extent permitted by law but does
not include claims for gross negligence.
Indemnity: I agree to defend, indemnify (meaning to pay or reimburse any amount
required to be paid, including attorneys fees) and hold the Oak City Recovery Run Club harmless from all
claims, causes of action, liability, losses, or damages for any property damage, property loss or
theft, personal injury, disability, death or other loss brought by or on behalf of me, a family
member, my estate, another participant or spectator, or any other person arising from or relating
to my participation in the activities, including claims that the Oak City Recovery Run Club was negligent.
Additional Provisions: I agree that the substantive laws of North Carolina govern this
Agreement and any dispute I have with the Oak City Recovery Run Club and consent to jurisdiction in North
Carolina. Any mediation, suit, or proceeding will be entered into only in North Carolina. Any
portion of this Agreement deemed unlawful or unenforceable is severable and shall be stricken
without effect on the enforceability of the remaining provisions.
I have read this agreement, I understand its contents and I sign it voluntarily. I intend by this
agreement to assume all hazards and risks, waive all rights to sue and release all liabilities
and claims, and indemnify the Oak City Recovery Run Club for any claims arising from my (or my child’s)
participation in the activities. I understand that this agreement will expire on August 8th at
8:30pm, but remains in effect at all times that I am (or my child is) observing or participating in
the activities and activities thereafter and will be binding on me, my family members, my heirs,
assigns, executors, representatives, and estate.
I agree: I have carefully read, understand and agree to voluntarily sign this form by
checking the box and completing the information below, and understand that by doing so I
am entering into a legally binding contract with the Oak City Recovery Run Club. I acknowledge that this
form shall be effective and legally binding upon me.
