Release Form & Contribution Agreement
Here is a preview of the agreement you will sign if offered a spot on our 2023 Falmouth Road Race team:
I agree to promptly notify Good Sports in the event you are unable to participate in the 2023 Falmouth Road Race (“Event”). I further agree to promptly notify Good Sports if any of the information in your application changes between the date of submission and the date of the Event.
I understand that once accepted onto the Good Sports 2023 Falmouth Road Race Team, Good Sports will make a one-time charge of $25 to my credit card, verifying my acceptance. This deposit of $25 will be applied to my fundraising campaign and holds a Falmouth Road Race entry number in my name. As a member of the Good Sports 2023 Falmouth Road Race Team, I agree to raise a minimum of $850 for Good Sports by August 25, 2023. If I have not raised at least $850 by August 25, 2023, I will be responsible for the balance owed, and Good Sports has the right to charge the balance I owe to my credit card.
By executing this application, I also grant to Good Sports the irrevocable and unrestricted right to use my name, likeness and/or photograph or voice for all purposes, including editorial, commercial and advertising, in broadcast, telecast, print, or any other medium now known or later developed, and agree to waive the right to any compensation or other claims for such use or otherwise against Good Sports. I also give Good Sports the right to alter any of the foregoing and to copyright the same in its name.
I understand that the Falmouth Road Race and Good Sports cannot guarantee that an in-person Event will take place as scheduled on August 20, 2023. If the Event is rescheduled, I understand that I am expected to run the race on the rescheduled date and meet the fundraising minimum of $850 by the date set by Good Sports. If the Event is canceled, or if I am unable to participate in the race due to injury, illness, travel restrictions, or any other reason, I understand that I am still expected to meet the $850 fundraising minimum by the date set by Good Sports. I further understand that deferment of my runner entry from the Event to a future Falmouth Road Race or other endurance event is not permitted.
I agree to comply with all protocols and procedures related to COVID-19 mitigation and public health for the Event, including U.S. federal and state travel guidelines and any quarantine requirements that are in place at the time of the Event. I understand the Falmouth Road Race may require proof of vaccination.
I hereby release Good Sports and its members, directors, officers, employees, representatives, agents, successors and assigns from any and all present and future claims for any loss, injury, illness (including COVID-19), damage (including real or personal property damage) or liability sustained by me while participating in the Event, whether resulting from negligence, inherent risk of sport or exercise or otherwise, and I hereby waive the right to bring any such claims against Good Sports and members, directors, officers, employees, representatives, agents, successors and assigns.
I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless Good Sports and its members, directors, officers, employees, representatives, agents, successors and assigns from and against any and all claims arising from my involvement in the Event or incidental thereto, wherever, whenever, and however the claims may arise, including, but not limited to, travel to and from the Event.
I assume all the foregoing risks and accept personal responsibility for any damages and loss following any loss of property, injury, illness (including COVID-19), permanent disability, or death resulting from my participation in the Event. In the event of an illness, injury or medical emergency arising during the event or in the training and planning sessions for said event, I hereby authorize and give my consent to Good Sports, Heartbreak Hill Running Company and/or the B.A.A. to secure from any accredited hospital, clinic and/or physician any treatment deemed necessary for my immediate care. I agree that I will be fully responsible for payment of any and all medical services and treatment rendered to me including but not limited to medical transport, medications, treatment, and hospitalization of an emergency.
I have read and fully understand the above waiver, release, and assumption of risk and fully understand that I have given up substantial rights by signing this waiver, release, and assumption of risk, and sign it voluntarily.
I agree that any legal claim or dispute arising out of, or in any way relating to my participation in the Event, shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, USA, and will be adjudicated exclusively by and in, and I hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of, the federal and state courts located in the Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
I declare I have reviewed the terms and conditions included as part of this application and have exercised my own judgment in completing and signing the same. I further declare that the decision to sign this agreement was voluntary and not based on or influenced by any representation of Good Sports.
