I assume all risks associated with running in this event, including but not limited to: falls, contact with other participants, the effects of the weather, including high heat and/or humidity, traffic, and the conditions of the trail. I understand that bicycles, skateboards, baby joggers, roller skates or rollerblades, and animals (except for dogs in the canicross race, one per racer) are not allowed in the race and I will abide by all race rules.
K9 5K (Canicross) race participants only: As a K9 5K race participant, I agree to race with only one dog. I agree that I must be connected to my dog at all times, whether by wearing a belt that is connected to a secure harness on the dog or by using a leash that is connected to a harness. I understand that I may not use a leash that is connected to the dog's neck or head. The dog must not be aggressive or vicious toward people or other dogs, and I am liable for any injuries caused by my dog to other runners, dogs, or event attendees.
