Your electronic acknowledgement and agreement with the liability waiver information below will be required in order to register for the March 28, 2020 5K Race & Family Fun Run at Bishop O’Connell High School. Minors must have a parent/guardian complete this on their behalf.
I am participating in the O’Connell 5K & Kids Fun Run on March 28, 2020 (hereafter called ACTIVITY), and hereby agree to follow all procedures and safety precautions set forth by Bishop O’Connell High School and the Catholic Diocese of Arlington to ensuring the protection of minors while at Bishop O’Connell High School (hereafter called SCHOOL). I hereby state that I am aware of and accept the risk inherent of using SCHOOL facilities for said ACTIVITY. I also voluntarily and without reservation and on behalf of myself and my family hereby indemnify, defend and save harmless the SCHOOL, to include but not limited to, the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, The Most Reverend Michael Francis Burbidge and his successors in Office, their officers, employees, from any and all liability, loss damages, costs, or expenses which are sustained, incurred, or required arising out of the ACTIVITY in the course of the event, or from any photo/image, voice, or video published during the event. The SCHOOL is not furnishing and is not responsible for and assumes no liability in connection with the following:
• participation in this ACTIVITY;
• guarantee or assurance of safety of participants;
• elimination of all risks from the environment;
• liability for the safety of personal property during participation in the event; or
• assumption of liability or responsibility for the actions of persons who are not volunteers or employees of the SCHOOL or otherwise engaged by the SCHOOL for activities that are not part of the ACTIVITY, or that are beyond the control of the SCHOOL and its subcontractors.
I also understand and agree that the liability insurance policies of Bishop O’Connell High School and the Catholic Diocese of Arlington will not provide protection to ACTIVITY participants in the event of a claim, and under no circumstance will the ACTIVITY organizers seek any contribution from the SCHOOL, or their insurer, for any medical or legal expenses regardless any underlying coverage that may or may not apply.
Waiver/Liability Information for DC Road Runners (Race Management Company)
I know that running and volunteering to work in club races are potentially hazardous activities. I should not enter and run in club activities unless I am medically able and properly trained. I agree to abide by any decision of a race official relative to my ability to safely complete the run. I assume all risks associated with running and volunteering to work in club races including, but not limited to, falls, contact with other participants, the effects of the weather, including high heat and/or humidity, the conditions of the road and traffic on the course, all such risks being known and appreciated by me. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts, and in consideration of your acceptance of my application for membership, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the Road Runners Club of America, the DC Road Runners Club, and all sponsors, their representatives and successors from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in these club activities even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons named in this waiver.
