By indicating your acceptance, you understand, agree, warrant, and covenant as follows:
Running in an event that is organized as a virtual activity where I run on my own, run at a date and time of my choosing, run in a location and with a running route of my choosing, and where there will be no support or security measures in place by Janney 5K and Fun Run or any other organization or entity, is a potentially hazardous activity, which could result in injury or death. I am participating in the activity outlined by this virtual event by my own free will and at my own personal risk. I am physically fit, medically able, and sufficiently trained to participate in this strenuous activity. I will not participate in this virtual event unless I am medically able and properly trained, and by my signature, I certify that I am medically able to perform this event, am in good health, and I am properly trained.

I further attest that I will abide by and comply with all Washington, D.C. guidelines and requirements relating to COVID-19, including those found at: https://coronavirus.dc.gov. I attest that if my community has a shelter in place order, that I will only participate in the virtual event by using a personal treadmill, and I will not run outside in the community during the duration of a shelter in place order. I agree to follow all pedestrian safety ordinances including running on a sidewalk where available and not in the road. I agree to follow the rules of the road if no sidewalk or multi-use trail is available, and I will run against oncoming traffic and not with traffic.
I agree to abide by any decision of a race official relative to any aspect of my participation in this virtual event, including the right of any official to deny or suspend my participation for any reason whatsoever. I attest that I have read the rules of the virtual race scheduled for 6:00 a.m. EST November 14, 2020 through 11:59 p.m. EST November 21, 2020, including the terms in this waiver and the timeline of the virtual event, and I agree to abide by them. I assume all risks to me associated with running on my own as part of this virtual activity, including but not limited to: falls, contact with other pedestrians, the effects of the weather, including high heat and/or humidity, traffic, and the conditions of the road or trail, all such risks being known or unknown and appreciated by me when out running on my own without any type of support from local officials or event organizers.
Having read this waiver and knowing these facts and in consideration of your accepting my entry, I, intending to be legally bound, do hereby, for myself, my heirs, executors, and administrators, forever waive, release, and give up any and all claims, demands, liability, damages, costs, and expenses of any kind whatsoever, including personal injuries to me or wrongful death against Janney 5K and Fun Run, Washington, DC, DCPS, DPR, sponsors, volunteers, contractors, subcontractors and their employees, representatives, agents, and heirs, that may arise from my participation in this virtual event, even if caused in whole or in part by the negligence or other fault of the parties or person or persons I am hereby releasing, by the dangerous or defective condition of any property or equipment owned, maintained, or controlled by them and/or because of their liability or fault. I FULLY UNDERSTAND I AM FOREVER GIVING UP IN ADVANCE ANY RIGHT TO SUE OR MAKE ANY CLAIM AGAINST THE PARTIES I AM RELEASING IF I SUFFER SUCH INJURIES AND DAMAGES EVEN THOUGH I DO NOT KNOW WHAT OR HOW EXTENSIVE THOSE INJURIES AND DAMAGES MIGHT BE AND AM VOLUNTARILY ASSUMING THE RISK OF SUCH INJURIES AND DAMAGES. I am voluntarily electing to run on my own as part of this virtual event.
I grant permission to all of the foregoing to use my photographs, video, or any likeness of me that I may share online as part of the event, personal data provided during registration and post-event reporting, video or audio recordings, or any other record of this event for any legitimate purpose. I understand that this event does not provide for refunds in the event of a cancellation, and by signing this waiver, I consent that I am not entitled to a refund if the event is canceled before or during the event.
I represent and warrant that you have full legal authority to complete this event registration on behalf of myself and/or any party I register (the "Registered Parties"), including full authority to make use of the credit or debit card to which registration fees will be charged. If I am registering a child under the age of 18 or an incapacitated adult I represent and warrant that I am the parent or legal guardian of that party and I have the legal authority to enter into this agreement on their behalf and by proceeding with this event registration, I agree that the terms of this Agreement and Waiver shall apply equally to all Registered Parties. By registering a child under 13, I agree and consent to the collection of that child's information which you provide for the purposes of registration.
