I understand that (1) participation with Achilles International is strictly voluntary, and (2) I am only to receive/provide running companionship, advice, and encouragement from my fellow Achilles athletes/volunteers/guides. If anything else is asked of me, or if I am otherwise uncomfortable or concerned, I will bring it to the immediate attention of my chapter leader.
Having read this Waiver and knowing these facts, and in consideration of your accepting my application, I, for myself or for my child and anyone else entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless the local chapter of Achilles International to which I belong (including all local Chapter directors, officers, leaders, members, athletes, volunteers, guides), the local county and city departments of Parks and Recreation, Achilles International (aka Achilles Track Club), Achilles Kids Program, New York Road Runners, Road Runners Club of America, The City of New York and all its agencies, all sponsors of Achilles and any of their races or events, members and volunteers, from present and future claims and liabilities of any kind, known or unknown, arising out of my participation in any Achilles event or related activities, even though that liability may arise out of ordinary negligence or fault on the part of the persons named in this Waiver. By registering for a New York Road Runners Race or any other race through Achilles International, I hereby grant my permission to Achilles International to act as proxy on my behalf for that race with full authorization to execute consents, waivers and releases included in the Achilles International registration. I further grant my permission to all the foregoing to use photographs, motion pictures, recordings, or any other record of my participation in Achilles International for any legitimate purpose, without remuneration. I have read this waiver and agree to the terms.
If applying member or volunteer is under the age of 18 years of age, OR otherwise potentially deemed incompetent and/or unable to legally consent for themselves, personal information for a parent or guardian must be provided before submission.
If for any reason, the volunteer or member is unable to read this document clearly and independently, then the document must be read to the volunteer/member, and then witnessed and co-signed by a third party individual.
