I understand and agree that I will be running and hiking in the Race, which will take place outdoors in the Verdugo Mountains on hiking trails, fire roads, or other "off-trail" areas which often contain steep and uneven natural surfaces. Running and hiking in those areas have risks, including (but not limited to) the risk of: falling; heat exhaustion; cold or hot weather conditions; insect or animal bites; poisonous plants; cuts and scrapes; falling rocks or trees; and collision with other runners, hikers, spectators, motor vehicles, or fixed objects. The City will offer a shuttle or van, operated by a private firm, which I may ride to and from the finish line. I understand and acknowledge that RaceWire LLC ("RaceWire") will time me in the Race. I agree to bring drinking water and food, and to wear my own protective body clothing and closed-toe shoes for trail running and hiking.
I represent that: (1) I am in good physical condition and emotional health; (2) I am not suffering from any condition, disease, or disability that can hinder or endanger my participation in the Race; (3) a licensed medical doctor has examined me, and I am qualified to participate in trail running and hiking; (4) I have sufficiently trained for this Race; and (5) I am capable of participating in the Race without accommodation.
AND HAVE A RISK OF INJURY OR DEATH. I AM FULLY AWARE THAT I AM VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATING IN THIS TRAIL RUNNING AND HIKING ACTIVITY WITH MY KNOWLEDGE OF THE INHERENT RISKS AND HAZARDS INVOLVED. I HEREBY AGREE TO ACCEPT ANY AND ALL RISKS OF INJURY, DEATH, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.
AS LAWFUL CONSIDERATION for the City's and the Foundation's permitting me to participate in this Race, I HEREBY AGREE that I, my heirs, distributees, guardians, legal representatives, and assigns WILL NOT MAKE A CLAIM AGAINST, SUE, OR PROSECUTE the City, the Foundation, RaceWire, or their officers, directors, contractors, agents, employees, volunteers, sponsors, or affiliates for injury, death, or damage arising out of the negligence or other acts, howsoever caused, by the City, the Foundation, RaceWire, or their officers, directors, contractors, agents, employees, volunteers, sponsors, or affiliates, as a result of my participation in this Race.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) PARTICIPANT’S / PARENT’S / GUARDIAN’S: RELEASE OF LIABILITY & INDEMNITY AGREEMENT:
COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by a type of virus, known as a “coronavirus.” The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 disease a worldwide pandemic. The coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to be spread from person-to-person contact and contaminated surfaces/objects. Its spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). As a result, federal, state, and local governments and health agencies have recommended staying away from crowded places, avoiding spending time in groups, practicing social (physical) distancing, and wearing a mask. Also, in many areas, health agencies have prohibited the congregation of groups of people. While COVID-19 can cause mild symptoms in some individuals, in others it can lead to severe, potentially life-threatening illness, injury, permanent disability, or death. Adults over age 65 and people of any age with underlying medical problems— including, but not limited to, high blood pressure, heart or lung problems, diabetes, cancer, or a compromised immune system— are at higher risk of developing serious illness from COVID-19. The Community Services & Parks Department (“Parks Department”) of the City of Glendale (“City”) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, those measures will not fully eliminate the spread of COVID-19, because people reportedly can become infected from others who show no symptoms. Also, the City and its staff will not be able to control the actions of every program participant. For example, another participant who wants to talk to you or your child(ren) may be at a distance of less than 6 feet. Consequently, the City cannot guarantee that you and/or your child(ren) will not become exposed to or infected with COVID-19 while participating in Parks Department programming. Further, if you choose to attend one or more Parks Department programs, or if you choose to have your child(ren) attend one or more programs, you are increasing your risk, and your child(ren)'s risk, of getting COVID-19. I UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS NATURE OF COVID-19. I REALIZE THAT IN USING THE CITY’S FACILITY AND BY MY PARTICIPATING, AND/OR BY MY CHILD(REN)’S PARTICIPATING, IN ONE OR MORE OF THE PROGRAMS, I AM EXPOSING MYSELF, MY CHILD(REN), FAMILY MEMBERS, AND OTHERS TO NOT ONLY THE RISKS OF BECOMING INFECTED WITH COVID-19 AND TRANSMITTING IT TO OTHER INDIVIDUALS, BUT ALSO THE RISKS OF SUSTAINING INJURY AND DAMAGE, INCLUDING SUFFERING MILD, MODERATE, OR SEVERE ILLNESS; PERMANENT DISABILITY; OR DEATH.
I AM FULLY AWARE THAT I AM, AND/OR MY CHILD(REN) ARE, VOLUNTARILY USING THE CITY’S FACILITY AND VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATING IN ONE OR MORE OF THE PROGRAMS WITH MY KNOWLEDGE OF THE INHERENT RISKS, HAZARDS, AND DANGERS INVOLVED FOR COVID-19. I HEREBY AGREE TO ACCEPT— ON BEHALF OF MYSELF AND/OR MY CHILD(REN)— ANY AND ALL RISKS OF INJURY AND DAMAGE, INCLUDING ILLNESS, PERMANENT DISABILITY, OR DEATH. PLEASE INITIAL: . AS LAWFUL CONSIDERATION for the City’s permitting me, and/or my child(ren), to use the City’s facility and to participate in the program or programs, I HEREBY AGREE that I/we, my/our heirs, distributees, guardians, legal representatives, and assigns WILL NOT MAKE A CLAIM AGAINST, SUE, OR PROSECUTE the City, its officers, agents, employees, or volunteers for injury, damage, illness, permanent disability, or death arising out of the negligence, intentional, or other acts, howsoever caused, by the City or by any officer, agent, employee, or volunteer of the City, and/or by another program participant, as a result of my, and/or my child(ren)’s, using the City’s facility and participating in the program or programs. In addition, I HEREBY RELEASE, DISCHARGE, AND AGREE TO “INDEMNIFY” (TO COMPENSATE AND TO DEFEND) the City, its officers, agents, employees, or volunteers from and against ALL ACTIONS, CLAIMS, OR DEMANDS that I/we, my/our heirs, distributees, guardians, legal representatives, or assigns now have, or may later have from today, for injury, damage, illness, permanent disability, or death, arising out of my, and/or my child(ren)’s, using the City’s facility and participating in the program or programs.. I HAVE CAREFULLY READ THIS AGREEMENT AND FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS CONTENTS. I AM AWARE THAT THIS IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND A CONTRACT TO INDEMNIFY BETWEEN MYSELF— AND/OR ON MY CHILD(REN)’S BEHALF— AND THE CITY, AND I SIGN IT OF MY OWN FREE WILL.
