Assumption of Risk, Release, and Indemnity Agreement
Assumption of Risk: I understand that the activities in which I will engage at or near
Runologie’s Store site at 401B Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, NC 27603, involve inherent and
other risks. This location includes all running routes within the Downtown Raleigh area. Some of
those risks are described on the next page of this agreement and are incorporated here by
reference. I acknowledge that the activities are strenuous and dangerous and require a certain
degree of physical condition, ability, maturity, and skill. 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 staff and owners of Runologie 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 Runologie 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 Runologie 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 Runologie 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 Runologie 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 Runologie was negligent.
Additional Provisions: I agree that the substantive laws of North Carolina govern this
Agreement and any dispute I have with Runologie 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 Runologie for any claims arising from my (or my child’s)
participation in the activities. I understand that this agreement has no expiration date and remains
in effect at all times that I am (or my child is) observing or participating in the activities 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 Runologie. I acknowledge that this form
shall be effective and legally binding upon me.
You must be over 18 years of age in order to agree to the text above.
